Adobe Announces Creative Cloud Updates, New Pricing Model for Education

Adobe announces 14 new versions of Creative Cloud desktop applications, including updates for Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC and Premiere Pro CC. Adobe also launched three new free mobile apps for iPad – Adobe Sketch, Adobe Line and Adobe Photoshop Mix – and began shipping two new creative hardware tools called Adobe Ink, a new digital pen, and Adobe Slide, a new digital ruler.

Full details on the new desktop applications and optional services can be found here.

In addition to the new product announcements, now schools and universities can provide access to Creative Cloud with new and existing purchasing options that ensure coverage regardless of deployment requirements. Available options include:

  • Students and teachers
    For individual use on personally owned computers, the first year intro offer for Creative Cloud Complete (Student Teacher Edition) is $19.99/month.
  • Classrooms and labs
    A new device licensing option provides licensing for each computer, rather than each user.
  • Small work groups and departments
    Designed for institutional departments that need access for each individual user, the named-user license provides a name and password to access Creative Cloud applications and services.
  • Institution-wide
    For large school districts, colleges and universities, Adobe’s enterprise licensing option offers customized licensing, and includes a complete set of Creative Cloud applications with or without services as well as other Adobe software applications.
  • Special K-12 school & district program
    Individual schools and smaller school districts can also take advantage of Adobe’s FTE-based Education Enterprise Agreement (EEA) program which is designed especially with the needs of educators and IT administrators in primary and secondary education.
