Hello! I teach After Effects, among other things, in the Visual Communications program at Madison Area Technical College. In an effort to keep my class up-to-date, what are some "real world" projects I should include? Currently, they get used to movement and keyframes by animating verbs, followed up with a logo, kinetic typography quote, banner ad, basic keying, and some lower thirds. The final project is to create a title sequence for a movie, TV show or video game. Planning on adding some cha... Read More

Hello everyone, I’m currently a web design/development student, I still have 1 more year until I graduate, however I would like to start gaining some work experience. Being that I’m on my 30’s and that most of my life I’ve worked doing administrative/clerical work, what would be the best advice anyone can give on how to find a job in web design/development with no experience? Does obtaining Adobe certifications help? Many thanks!

I use CS6 in my classroom and would like to upgrade to CC, however the cost is holding me back. The price quote I  was given was  $20 per student per month. That is more money than my school will pay. Why is CC so much more expensive than a classroom license of the past? Did anyone get a better price than $20 per student per month?

After participants completed the Up and Running with Adobe Muse CC workshop and created their first project, they were asked to reflect and list ways they could use Muse in their classroom. How might you incorporate website creation with Muse into a student learning experience? This discussion post is part of the Adobe Education Exchange Professional Development Workshop Up and Running with Adobe Muse CC.

After learning about how to build a portfolio I was encouraged to think about how I can mesh visual images with my actual work in order to make my portfolio meaningful and provide a potential instant connection with my audience. I'm still torn between the value of a website and a visual portfolio, but I think they both serve a valuable purpose.  I'm considering doing both because I believe I can maximize my audience and perhaps, be more innovative. As we become a society increasingly dependent on vis... Read More
