Adobe Creative Cloud, Creative Suite 6 Deliver Professional Grade Features for Students and Educators



On Monday, April 23rd, Adobe announced Adobe Creative Cloud Student and Teacher Edition, and Creative Suite 6 Student and Teacher Edition for institutions, educators and students worldwide.



In addition to 14 new CS6 point products and four Creative Suites, Adobe is now delivering its first cloud offering for students and educators. Adobe Creative Cloud is a hub where students and educators can explore, share and deliver creative content using any of the Adobe Creative Suite 6 desktop applications, as well as new tools for HTML5 such as Adobe Muse™ and Adobe Edge Preview. By offering integration with Adobe Touch Apps, headlined by Photoshop® Touch, Adobe Creative Cloud enables new mobile workflows, from ideation to publishing, that bring the power of Adobe innovation to the classroom via iPad and Android tablets.



Prepare Students for Careers


With new capabilities designed to help students across all disciplines create stunning digital content that stands out, Adobe Creative Suite 6 gives students the ability to learn the skills needed in today’s competitive workforce:


Gain digital content creation skills across video, animations, 3D and photos with major updates to Adobe Photoshop CS6, Adobe Premiere® Pro CS6, Adobe After Effects ® CS6, and Adobe Audition® CS6. With the new Adobe Photoshop CS6, students can express themselves by leveraging the powerful new 3D and video editing tools for media they have captured across multiple devices.


Create on any device with Adobe Creative Cloud Connection which enables the syncing, sharing and storing of files from Adobe Touch Apps® for download and use with CS6 desktop products. For example, educators and students can work with a file in Photoshop Touch on iPad and use Adobe Creative Cloud Connect to sync and share that file on the desktop for refinement using Photoshop CS6.


Get noticed with multimedia-rich portfolios, websites and applications. InDesign CS6 extends its lead in digital publishing, streamlining the creation of multiple layouts from a single set of content, helping to deliver interactive campus publications for iPad, Kindle Fire and Android devices. Dreamweaver CS6 enables students to create high-impact school or personal websites.



Engage Students, Empower Faculty and Advance Teaching


The new Creative Suite 6 release gives faculty and students the tools to easily visualize, understand, and communicate information in creative ways across print, web, video, and mobile devices.


Create digital education content ranging from digital storytelling for history and languages, and gaming and animations for math, to data visualization in the sciences – all in a way that engages students and creates rich learning experiences. Adobe Creative Suite 6 provides the features and flexibility to produce interactive presentations and explore the boundaries of creativity and critical thinking.


Expand the delivery of education content with multi-screen publishing across multiple platforms and devices using HTML5 and the very latest standards for web, mobile, eBooks, and tablets.


Improve productivity and efficiency in the classroom with simplified workflows, speed and performance enhancements, and a new, more intuitive user interface across the CS6 product set.


Empower educators with ISTE-aligned curricula with the release of three newly-updated year-long, project based curriculums for graphic design and print production, web design and development, and video production. These curricula are available on the Adobe Education Exchange (http://edexchange.adobe.com), along with resources from the education community.


Certify industry-centric technical and communication skills with Adobe certifications. More than 300,000 students worldwide have been certified through the Adobe Certified Associate examination. With CS6, Adobe and CertiPort are offering new, updated curricula and certification for this major release. Educators and students can get certified for both entry-level skills as an Adobe Certified Associate (ACA), and professional-level skills as an Adobe Certified Expert (ACE).
