I am very curious to know what users think of using Dreamweaver with Business Catalyst? Our company is now developing websites for our customers; we are using Business Catalyst with Dreamweaver when building our websites. Majority of the sites are either e-commerce and email marketing. It's quite cool how the modules work but there has to be a better way than this. We have noticed when Business Catalyst goes down, so does the customer's website, as it is tied in with it. And that isn't good either! W... Read More

Sometimes you wish to focus on a practical but limited web site where design rather than css or coding is needed. In which Case Dreamweaver may not be necessary - what are peoples experiences with MUSE and or sites like WIX as the web site creation tool. I have experience with WIX and I am pretty impressed. If MUSE is a preferred option, why?

What are future directions with Flash and Edge Animate with regard to creating animations in html format. The new Flash CC 2014 offering allow you to use and html Canvas mode where animations are published as html and javascript replaces actionscript. Why would you use two tools when one may do or am I missing something about Edge Animates capabilities?

Do you believe it is important for a college student to develop a professional website to attract future employers? Or would an online portfolio be better?

You really have to ask yourself what is really next in technology. The roller coaster has past its peak and is heading toward the valley but we will soon be rising back up that hill to the peak. What is it that will take us up that hill? We have experienced, seen, taught and use mobile devices, web based applications etc but, what will really take us to the next level of teaching & learning? Is it going to be a device or a technique? Maybe it will just be a way of teaching & learning that we used to... Read More

I am thinking about having students use more tablet based apps to develop supporting materials for assignments. I am curious how others are using various Adobe iPad apps in their classrooms. Examples would include Adobe Voice, Photoshop Touch, Lightroom Mobile, Adobe Revel, and Adobe Ideas. Do you have specific assignments or do you see students using some of these apps in a more organic manner to complete assignments? If not yet, do you have specific plans for the next semester? It would be great t... Read More

With so many 21st Century Learning approaches out there, it can be difficult to settle on one that meets the needs of our students. What skills do students need be successful in the 21st Century? Are we teaching these skills? How are these skills being assessed? Are we confident in our ability to integrate these skills into our lessons? I am interested to know what framework/s you are currently using and the impact that this is having on student learning.

With the new Creative Cloud model, Adobe has taken out Encore from the suite. I would like to know what people are doing as an alternative to the creation of DVDs. My prime example would be school plays. In the past, we would create a great souvenir for the students and their families. We would first edit the project in Premier Pro, tweak the audio with Audition, maybe add some cool animiations with After Effects and then create a DVD with Encore. What are some alternatives to this last step? How do you... Read More

It appears there is a growing movement towards web apps (instead of native apps). The former have the appearance of an app, but are custom web pages with a specific purpose. The latter are distributed via stores (such as the AppStore). More details on the differences and emerging trend can be found at: http://webprofessionals.org/web-professional-trends-web-apps-vs-native-apps-wilson-page-mozilla/. Obviously Dreamweaver can be used as a starting point (as can Edge Code and Brackets). For development of an a... Read More

We are starting to look at moving to Creative Cloud in my district. We have been in the habit of upgrading every three or four years to the next version. We started with Photoshop 7 and Illustrator 10. We jumped to CS2, then CS5. We usually purchased a site license of 500 seats for about $8k. That was manageable when it was every three. We are not looking at Adobe's Education Enterprise Agreement that is based on Full Time Equivalent staff working in the building. That comes out to about $8K-$10K EACH YEAR... Read More

Schools are turning to tablets more and more. I use Adobe on a laptop and desktop environment and find the mouse and keyboard quite essential. I'm not a huge tablet user so I was wondering what people feel about Abobe software on a tablet?
