I am mainly looking for course on Adobe Captivate and Photoshop. These can be intro courses, btw, since it has been several years since I have looked at some of t... Read More

I own a few adobe products and I am enrolled in one of the six week adobe courses. This weeks assignment requires that I render my homework using flash. Is the assumption that I'm to download the trial version for this purpose if I do not own the product to complete the assignment?

Here's a feature request... I want a way to save all these great resources I'm finding on EdEx. How about an engine like Pinterest where I can pin these great resources somewhere. Or a bucket I can throw them in. Or a box. Whatever metaphor you want. Right now, I'm bookmarking them into my browser - which is a mess.  So much good stuff!!

Is there a way to invite a colleague to join EdEx straight out of EdEx? I mean, other than telling to go edex.adobe.com and sign up. Is there a referral link sort of thing? I have not come upon that yet in my explorations.

Hello Fellow Adobe Educational Exchange Participants! I teach Dreamweaver to college level students. The course meets one day a week for ten weeks, and is an all day class, which can be challenging in itself. As a graphic designer, an area of focus for the class is on best design practices and design trends in web design. My approach to Dreamweaver is from a design perspective, relying on design view, using Dreamweaver's templates. I know students should understand code and html to work on web sites, howeve...

In a chat with some folks from the Kennedy Center Education Department and a few other folks last week, we surfaced the need for an international network of innovative professional development providers. Most pd is terrible, we all agree on that, but there are some bright pockets of innovation out there with some organizations doing some really, really cool stuff. Why don't more "cool" professional development providers talk to one another? Why don't we share best practices? And why don't exi... Read More

I am disappointed that I have been unable to access the resources for the online course. It has taken me more than 5 days to enrol in your course(after using different devices and options), and I have received NO response to the email contacts that I have sent.  Today, I have managed to enrol. Yeah!  I now find, that I have missed the webinars, and the time difference in a global environment clashed with work commitments, even if possible. Through enrolment, I am trying to... Read More

It is frustrating to look for resources and find so many that are just links to a site where the author is selling products for profit. I feel that this exchange should indicate those or at least give credit to the participants who really share. How do you feel about this?
