"I learned that these Adobe programs we focused on are much more accessible than I previously thought. I learned that creativity in the classroom, at least for me, involves students making choices in their learning and using resources pertinent to their interests to demonstrate their knowledge"

"Fantastic experience. Kind of a contradiction--it's laid out how little I know the platforms, yet I'm confident now that I can learn them."

"This was a great institute! Thank you so much to [the Adobe Team] for making learning these intimidating programs to easy and fun. I wish I could do this again! Will definitely recommend to my colleagues."

"Wonderful program, great team, and highly beneficial to continued professional development w/ industry standard tools"

Markers for Success

  • How does the use of Adobe CC by learners create an alternative submission for what was once a traditional written assignment?
  • How does the project enhance student success through digital literacy?
  • What are the significant measurable outcomes that can be shown by the end of the year?
We want to know how instructors are helping prepare students for their careers and giving them a competitive edge through developing Digital Fluency
