Did you know that you can embed images in a unit that dynamically size, according to your page size? This is ideal for embedding images into your Canvas unit that can be viewed on a mobile with no issues. The embed code from the HTML editor will refer to the width and height of the image: https://xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/courses/22607/files/6877530/preview" alt="Adobe Creative Cloud by application" width="1000" height="1600" data-api-endpoint="https://xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/...

“There are years that ask questions, and years that answer.” - From Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God While I dearly love this sentiment, perhaps we should actively steer away from answers in 2020. What if the story we tell ourselves about how we teach and the way we assess is wrong? Maybe educators shouldn’t be certain about their solutions or their actions. “There is no such thing as a bad question.” Perhaps educators need to reconsider this phra... Read More

I would like to use Adobe Spark for assignments in my introduction to photography class. My Distance Education Coordinator asked me about Accessibility. • are alt tags possible? • if someone had to interact with the key board is that possible? • are they any other issues I should consider to make my assignments available to all students? • Is there a different adobe tool I should consider in place of Spark? Thanks for any insights and sharing.

Chicago Telugu calendar is available here for free download. This is a boon for Telugu people living in Chicago to get the required information of the festivals and other events in their own language. It is obvious that everyone wants the calendar in their own language so that they can understand it well and get the accurate information of the timings.

Our University just completed a session with 30 of the largest employers of our recent graduates. We asked them what is one thing they want to see out one of our graduates that would help them get hired at their business. Unanimously it came down to a portfolio of work. They wanted to see what they could do with the education they received at our institution. Right now we do have Adobe CC for all Faculty, Staff, and Students for the next 5 years. We are beginning to design best practices for e-portfoli... Read More

Having had a bit of experience using Roland CNC Routers and Adobe Illustrator, I have found these two products to work well together. But I am always interested to learn about how others use this kind of stuff... What kind of projects do people find get the best out of these two being paired up? And, how do you ensure the students get to be hands on with the tech?

Hi, Did anyone have any experience with 'Volumes of Rotation' (An advanced maths topic) with Adobe products? I'm interested in a platform which you can easily transfer a function into an Adobe application and then rotate it around either the x or y axis. And animate this for students to comprehend easily. Many thanks, Alper

Hello everyone! I've been leading workshops on integrating technology where I would usually present the SAMR and TPACK model in a traditional (nearly death by PowerPoint) way with a little hands on activities at the end. My question is, how can I also do this workshop in a creative way where participants learn SAMR and TPACK creatively? Many thanks in advance!

I am teaching a service-learning course and deal with experiential learning. Most of my work deals with facilitating interactions between the community and students. One aspect of this is preparing digital content. The material must be able to simulate the experience of going to a community and elicit reflections as well as feasible project proposals that focus on an intervention for specific community needs. Has anyone used any Adobe product to this effect? Previous suggestions to me included the use of... Read More

Hello everyone! I am a pre-service secondary English teacher preparing for my first year in the classroom. I have been exploring the many tools that Adobe has to offer educators, and I am curious as to how Adobe Spark performs in the classroom. I have seen some instances of it being used for presentations instead of more common tools, such as PowerPoint or Prezi. I’m interested in hearing your opinions and experiences on using Adobe Spark in your own classrooms. Have your students enjoyed using Adobe... Read More

I have built a puppet from scratch using Photoshop. I then imported it into Character Animator. I previously have been able to adapt and modify puppets from Start templates. I followed the folder creation and naming conventions as best I could, but I am not sure exactly where everything should go. (I referred to the Blank Face and Chloe puppets as models.) However, I get hung up on behaviors. Specifically, my arms get disconnected from the shoulders when I drag the hands. Any guidance on how best to use fi... Read More

I am working on creating my own original puppet in Character Animator. I am enrolled in the Adobe EdEx course. I have watched a number of video tutorials and read Help pages. I have been successful in adapting existing templates. However, here is my problem with the puppet built from scratch using Photoshop: I can't figure out how to pin the shoulder to the arm. When I drag the hand, the arm goes wildly flinging about. How do I fix it? Is there a best practice for what you put in the Head, Body and Backg... Read More
