Adobe announces major education updates

Today at Adobe MAX, The Creativity Conference, Adobe announced a significant update to Adobe® Creative Cloud™, the company’s flagship offering for creatives.

Available in June, the updated program will include a set of Creative Cloud desktop applications (“CC” apps) and cross-device collaboration and publishing capabilities. Creative files can be stored, synced and shared, via Creative Cloud; Behance online creative community is now integrated with Creative Cloud, so customers can showcase work, get feedback on projects and gain global exposure.

This update to Creative Cloud includes the next generation of Adobe desktop applications – including Adobe Photoshop® CC, InDesign® CC, Illustrator® CC, Dreamweaver® CC and Premiere® Pro CC.

Also today, Adobe announced a new licensing option for primary, secondary, and higher education institutions. The Education Enterprise Agreement (EEA) program is a term-based licensing program that gives educational institutions access to the new CC apps. Additional ways students, educators and institutions can purchase Creative Cloud:

*Creative Cloud for individuals – includes a membership offer for individual use by students and teachers available on and through authorized resellers

*Creative Cloud for enterprise – provides the best coverage model for institution-wide access to Creative Cloud apps and services under an Enterprise Term Licensing Agreement (ETLA)
