Just seen your post (and Adobe's response, which is cool). Having been on a number of Edex courses, I have been pleased that the tutors have often mentioned alternatives. After all, unfortunately many schools around the world have not been able to purchase CC or even CS6 versions of software. By using alternatives it is possible to achieve the same result. Sometimes, though, it takes longer and is less efficient. Within the AET forum (which is accessible if you pass the Adobe Education Trainer course) we do talk about other alternatives. I'd suggest putting the software name in brackets at the start of the discussion or something like Painter: Does any one do this? That way it can be found more easily. Obviously only Adobe products are marked up when searching- it might be an idea to include the nearest equivalent Adobe version so that searches identify it more often. Hope that helps!
