Is Adobe XD CC only available for an extra fee? That is; if a school has a full site license for the software, can they not access Adobe XD CC unless they pay an extra fee?

It is well-known, and a matter of established statistics that only n amount of those who take a workshop, for example, will voluntarily also complete a survey for it. Where I work, that n is usually running somewhere between thirty to fifty percent. A work-around could be to make the survey required to successfully complete the course. But, what to do if the workshop cannot have such a requirement? (Any best practices on this would be rather helpful to note). I tell faculty that it helps us improve our se... Read More

I am restructuring my projects so that each project has five stages that mimic the graphic design process. There is no singular "graphic design process" that everybody agrees, including number of steps. However, I am trying to simplify to FIVE steps for beginning high schools students and trying to narrow down what those FIVE steps should be. I want to get feedback and suggestions from other teachers. Currently I am thinking: Design Brief: Project introduction, objective, goals, etc.Research a... Read More

I had an assignment I posted for everyone to use with the original film clips for the first Lord of the The Rings. I had a drop box link with all the files in it. My computer was wiped out and I lost all the files. Is there anyone out there that has the files would be willing to share them back with me so I have them? Then I will put them back in drop box for all to enjoy. HELP!!! Thanks Brian O'Dell

Hello Adobe Community, Questions 1. Which "textbook" do you recommend I use for my year 1 Photoshop students? I have found a handful. My students will be taking an ACA or ACE test at end of this school year. Thinking of the Classroom in a Book series for 2017. Recommended as best one for a CTE program? 2. Does this book have a teacher and student edition? 3. Where can I download a pdf version? Thanks so much for your feedback, Soraya

Been really looking for a better solution for covering the Adobe interface/workspace with my students. Right now we basically just to through the menus and buttons without a whole lot of really engaging content. I have also tried just not really covering the workspace and figuring they will pick it up as we work through various projects (limited success with this). Does anyone have any really engaging way that they teach the Adobe workspace and layout so that the kids are more comfortable navigating the pro... Read More

I am a high school Graphic Arts Instructor. We have purchased creative cloud for the classroom and I was looking for feedback on setting up creative cloud on each computer. Last year was our first year to use the program and I ran into some difficulty. Students were initially inputting setup info with false email accounts. It would then lock out anyone using that computer until I could apply a fix. I had to run a clean up tool to erase the setup info and start again. Pain in ___. My Mac lab has intern... Read More

Hi. I was employed by a manufacturing plant. So most of the workers did not pursue an education after high school. Most were generational employees. They used a paper testing system which created an unfair evaluation of their skills. I created a certification program which mirrored the objectives of the Quality Management Systems. They worked with SMEs and the pass rate expanded by over 60%. It made no sense to take them from the work they knew and put them in a paper testing environment. Most had n... Read More

Hey there! Here I am with a maybe not too easy question - the answer though might be easy when it is as I assume.Due to the fact that I'm teaching in a quite strict area of Germany concerning data protection and privacy issues it is NOT allowed to 'force' students to register on whatever platform. In my case it is supposed to be ADOBE Spark Video because I'd like them to create short videos and presentations on several topics.At present I have several iPads with a collective Adobe account. BUT if there will... Read More

Hello. I am a graphic design instructor and I am needing some advice. I am in need of ordering new computers for my class. I am still using Adobe Creative Suite 6 also. Computers:Do you highly suggest getting MACs? Do you feel my students would benefit most from working on a MAC platform? I am working on a MAC with Windows operating system (yes.....I know the irony here, believe me). I want them to be able to work on a MAC but I also only get a 50/50 grant help so half has to come out of my budget and act... Read More

I will be teaching a new graphic arts class at the high school level. We will be learning illustrator and Photoshop. I hope to develop small projects tailored toward printing t shirts and hats. I will be using the adobe illustrator and Photoshop classroom in a book but I also would like to teach students about the overall graphic art and design elements. What would be a good graphic arts textbook to supplement the classroom in a book series? Thanks

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
