I have heard that some colleges, art schools, and universities give credit for students who have passed the ACA exam. Is there are list of those schools? Also, does the ACA certificate need to be for the lasted version - CC?

What software are you using to monitor computers in a lab environment? I like to walk around from time to time, but hovering around behind someone while they are at the computer is not fair. I used to have a desktop lab management program - can't remember the name of it. I am in a new school and I need a way to see my students' monitors from my computer. Help!

Statistics, Charts, letters, Examples - I am looking for anything and everything that you have used to convince administration to step-up the implementation of technology in our schools. NOW is the time to fully integrate digital technology into EVERY classroom in EVERY school district. I am in the process of preparing a presentation (which I will later post to the AEE) - and need your help and advice!

There are many different Adobe software paths to arrive at eLearning units. How do I decide which is the right path?

I have video + slide show + instructions + form + rubric. In other words, I have a bunch of materials that I am developing. How best to package them for distribution to students and other teachers?
Do I create an InDesign interactive document, embed all of the pieces and publish it? DPS?
Do I create a self-contained website using Dreamweaver or Muse containing embeds and links to the information (forms central=essay responses & quizzes, captivate=quizzes, software demos, slide shows)?
Do I create an Acrobat portfolio with the individual components?
Which is the best solution? All can be accessed from any device, right?
I think this is the most perplexing thing I face when I first embark on a large learning unit that I want to present digitally.
Please - feedback. Hope I made my confusion clear.

Now that Adobe has acquired Behance - is it going to replace Acrobat as the tool for student ePortfolios? How are you using Behance? How does it compare to the Acrobat Portfolio?

t has always been a dilemma for me - when a student puts little effort into an assignment. This might sound cruel, but their work really is not worth the expense and environmental waste of paper. Do you print everyone's work? How do you get around it? Do you post the work online?

We go after Masters degrees. We add clock hours. But as Adobe Education Leaders, one subject that is never discussed is the dreaded Adobe Expert certification? I took the InDesign Expert exam and failed. But I know that it is one goal that I MUST achieve. So, let's talk about it.
How important is Expert certification to your job? Does it carry any weight in your school district? among your peers?
Should the Expert exams be gamified?
Sorry to bring up such a tender subject...

I am developing the curriculum for a semester-long class on digital illustration, grounded in the timeless techniques and artistic challenges of illustration - but taking the essence of creativity in illustration to the digital age. Students will be expected to have experience using traditional tools and media, and will therefore be prepared to use Illustrator tracing, vector drawing and Photoshop painting not as crutches, but as exciting new tools to push what they previously thought possible. There are smatterings around the internet on digital illustration, but I have yet to see a course that focuses on the power of Adobe tools to give an illustrator wings to fly!
What are your thoughts?
Prerequisites: extensive studio drawing, using different media: ink, gouache, watercolor, etc. Printmaking skills. Photography.
Programs: Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, Edge

Is ACA Certification part of your program? Do you offer ACA Certification in your school district? Where is the nearest testing facility?
