Teaching Digital Publishing Suite at the college/university level

We've added a new Digital Layout and Design class that will allow me to expand from 1/3 of a semester, in which we covered InDesign, to a full semester. I'm looking at what's best to add into the class. Digital Publishing Suite looks like a good option, but I'm not sure it's possible. Are there educational versions that allow for something like personal publishing, so students and professors can see the work, without having to publish to the world?

Hi everyone, I'm very keen to get our students using Adobe Voice on our iPads but we always seem to get to the section where you can choose your icons and pictures and a notification pops up and says Voice cannot connect to the server. Has anyone else teaching NSW DEC schools experienced this and had success finding a solution?

There was an article of a local teacher, Leigh-Ann Pringle, here in South Africa (more specifically in Millerton – Cape Town). I was so inspired by the article (as it made me aware of the fact that we (South Africa) are not so far behind other countries), that I decided to phone her. In the conversation I was so inspired by her spontaneous, bubbly personality. The nextminute I know I was walking into her classroom to find out exactly what she did. From the onset I could see that Leigh-Ann enjoye... Read More

I have Adobe CC but my classroom computers have CS4.  Because I'm just learning my way around CC I am a little nervous about helping my students learn CS4.  I am looking for videos, PDFs, etc. that have step by step directions showing how to use the various tools and how to create things in Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign.  

Rapport with Students Will Take You Far

In my time as a teacher I have learned that if you can build rapport with your students the learning process can be as much fun as it is educational. Each new Quarter when I would get a new batch of students I would watch and listen to them as they entered the classroom, concentrating on their conversations, mannerisms and demeanor. I also would greet each student with a hearty "Hello, welcome to class" as they entered my classroom. The purpose of all my actions would be to build rapport with the... Read More

Hello! My starting point: Anticipation and analyses save time and effort, even stress and are usually condition for excellent results and for enhancement. In my practice it‘s a challenge to engage the learners to a new thinking and working: to prefer the intelligent use of knowledge instead of encyclopedic recall. And to have fun with that! - The innovative use of media diversity helps to „push“ my teaching and learning aims. What kind of experiences do you have?

Creative Learning at a digital learning era. I would like to start a discussion on creative learning. Today, creativity is recognised as a practical skill, one which can be taught and which everyone can achieve. It is a way of thinking in which we look at familiar things with a fresh eye, examine a problem with an open mind about how it might be solved, and use our imagination rather than our knowledge to explore new possibilities rather than established approaches.

I have recently learnt Adobe Muse and really love the GUI and it's ease of use. I am considering teaching Adobe muse to my year 8 - 12 ICT classes and not Adobe Dreamweaver. Can anyone provide any Pros or Cons in relation to this decision.

Howdy all. Since the Adobe Education Exchange changed they way they deliver the curriculum, I'm seeing differences in what the Syllabus Bundle (the entire curriculum) contain versus what the individual projects and lessons contain - in both the content and the arrangement of the content. Anyone else seeing that? I wish the curricula was laid out in the VERY cool and techie Acrobat Presentation as it was previously! :-(

I've been teaching Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator as part of our curriculum in Grade 10, 11 and 12. I love whats available on the Adobe Education Exchange but find that the requirement for the South African curriculum tend to get in the way. I'm keen to find some teachers who would like to work with me to start putting some projects together and linking them to CAPS outcomes. Anyone keen?

I am looking to for a student / teacher resource to teach In Design CC and Premiere Pro CC.  Ideally I would like a resource that would have step by step instructions to demonstrate a variety of techniques in each application.  This resource would also be used for students to refer to when they need to be refreshed in learning a new technique.  Any ideas?  thanks!
