Has anyone come across the problem of having to choose from the 2 Adobe CC bundles that don't seem to be fully compatible to the CS6 master collection?

I'm not happy with the move to CC and this is another reason to add to that growing list of disappointments,

I have seen recent info indicating the in NSW Aust DET (Govt) schools, staff can access CC for about $12 per annum, and that students can download CS6 software (Design Premium???) for free. I'd love to see that type of set up extended to ALL schools...after all, getting kids into your software is a way to ensure that as adults they continue to use/recommend it. If my Photo students could access CC for a nominal fee, it could be included in their subject levy and wed be accessing the current versions rather than our older site licences.

Premiere Pro is a steep learning curve that discourages many students, however with the enterprise version of CC that was available to schools in Australia did not include Premiere or After Effects, they were an extra cost. Our question was, that seeing we are moving our 1 to 1 laptop system over to Macbook Airs iMovie would do the job for many students.

We've moved from CS6 to CC, and besides expected changes (improvements), we've not had issues. What we do desire though is that Premiere Elements is part of the bundle. Introductory students do fine with Photoshop and InDesign, but Premiere Pro is of a complexity level that discourages many emerging digital storytellers.

The EEA includes what they call the "Design and Web K-12 Collection." The "Video Collection," which includes Premier, After Effects, etc. seems to be sold separately as a tack-on, not necessarily a completely different product. There's no "Master Collection" like CS6 has or like a regular CC subscription has.

Is this what you're talking about? Are you looking at the EEA for your institution? Or are you looking at using CC for Teams?

Yes..what i'm saying is that its too bad I have to now buy 2 "collections" if I want to upgrade my school to CC to have parity to what we teach now in the master collection CS6.

What I'm saying is..I'm trying to purchase the classroom upgrade (CC) from our current Mater collection subscription..I am finding out I cant upgrade because they dont offer and educational CC subscription that mirrors the Master Collection...So to upgrade what I use in the classroom for the last 6 years, they say I have to purchase 2 different subscription bundles. 2x the price... Kinda makes no sense to me..

Hi. What do you mean by CC bundles (CC subscriptions?) and how does this relate to CS6 MC?
