Meet the needs of a changing higher education landscape.

In the current landscape of student-centred education and blended learning, it's essential to prepare learners with the skills and knowledge they need to thrive in a digital-first world.

Digital literacy is a must: the power to use digital tools to solve problems, enhance communication skills, and prepare for an increasingly digital world is essential.

Embedding Adobe products across your curriculum can transform your approach to teaching and help your students develop crucial future skills.

"Supporting students to confidently, creatively and critically use technology in a global context and in a variety of ways; to look for information and evaluate its authenticity; to collaborate and become content creators, not just consumers. We’re enabling students, across all disciplines, to make, play and learn and graduate digitally fluent, digitally confident and become active agents of change"

- CLARE DYSON, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR DIGITAL LITERACIES

Video.

In the 1990s, advances in digital editing and computer software meant videographers could download videos onto computers. This allowed huge freedom to create effects, collages and edits unthinkable in the analogue era.

 

Fast-forward a few decades, and you’ll find video artists turned movie directors like Steve McQueen bringing their techniques to mainstream audiences, while CGI artists such as Ed Atkins render extraordinary avatars for cutting-edge exhibitions.

 

Video art is a thriving and innovative medium. With advances in smartphone technology and easy editing tools like Adobe Express, you don’t need a film degree to get started.

Creative Cloud across the curriculum. 

Innovations in technology and digital communications mean that both curriculum needs and students' goals have changed. Assignments that meet learning requirements while allowing students to effectively communicate their knowledge are essential.

Adobe Creative Cloud is more than a suite of apps for content creation and digital communication. It provides a new way of learning, enabling your students to collaborate and showcase their knowledge, skills and passion in engaging and unique ways.

 

How Creative Cloud benefits students.

Boost student engagement.

Help your students master their subject matter with immersive projects. Give them innovative digital tools to communicate their ideas - like infographics, websites, videos, and 3D and AR content - so their work always packs a punch.~~

Nurture essential skills.

Develop students' soft skills while you teach them how to express themselves through a variety of digital media. They'll learn how collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creative problem-solving can help them amplify their voices.

Create self-starters.

Enhance students' storytelling abilities, help them create show-stopping projects and build their confidence to face real-world challenges. Give them the experience and know-how to take on any digital assignment anytime, anywhere.

Reimagine coursework with Creative Cloud.

Whethere your students are creating brochures to present research, animations to demonstrate scientific concepts or videos to deliver critical responses to literature, they'll become digital storytellers and persuasive communicators with Creative Cloud.
