I love the idea of students making a storyboard, but it seems like a daunting task to incorporate in my lessons. Does anyone have experience using a storyboard project? How long did it take and what kind of reaction did you get from your students?

I Play 3 Snake based game at my school and find that the basic idea of these games are almost same but all are little bit different from each other due to some amazing features. WormateioWormaxioSlitherio The base of these first 2 games are Slither.io but Wormate and Wormax are more attractive by graphics and feathers. They will Surly sharp your mind and give a cool touch of relaxation. This io games site is not blocked at my school. So enjoy game here if official sites are blocked.

Hello everyone. I am new to this community, so please forgive me for any redundancy. I teach graphic design and photography at a small university in Texas. I also have been recently appointed as director of a makerspace in our campus—Maker Lab. Although almost all student projects done with CNC router and laser-cutter involve Adobe apps (in particular Illustrator), I am very interested in finding out more best practices with Photoshop and other Adobe products. Would anyone point me to some examples... Read More

I'm using Photoshop Mix and Photoshop Sketch with several classes in school, is it possibile to organise their work in the cloud so each class has a folder? At the moment the ipads are all logged into one Adobe account, the problem is the children become easily distracted when the app launches and they see everyone elses work. In the mobile creations section in the cloud I can only find archive or copy, I cant find any option to create subfolders, is there a way? Any advice welcome on efficient meth... Read More

Hi, I am about to change schools and would appreciate advice on best practice to install Photoshop across a large student body. At my old school we had a Macbook program and were able to use a Casper Self Service app to help students download and install software licenced to the school. My new school is a Bring Your Own Device arrangement with students able to bring either a windows or mac, and no self-service app in use. Has anyone been in this situation and been able to provide a seamless procedure fo... Read More

How might we shoot, edit and share better instructional video?

Most design students learn the basic rules of composition early on in their education. But do the rules still apply today? If so, which are most important to follow, and which might be bent or broken in the name of creativity? Is it worth even teaching the rules anymore?

HI Everyone, I was reading up on some trends and wanted to ask your best advice, is Adobe Illustrator a good alternative to using AutoCAD or TurboCAD to create blue prints?

Adobe Photoshop has the most tools to manipulate photographs and make them the highest quality. You will have to have a tutorial on Adobe Photoshop computer system software to learn everything about editing, but you will find that when you have the knowledge the program is the most easy to use. You can really publish pictures from negatives, from cameras, and from scanners. You will be able to edit out those little scratches or lint that were on the video camera lens to make the picture seem best. You can a... Read More

I'm looking for suggestions from the community on how to best QA a large pool, or several large pools of questions in my captivate courses.  It's not like you can take the course a million times until you've achieved all possible outcomes.  How is everyone else doing this?  I've been printing to PDF or WORD and sending to the QA team - as it shows all the questions in all the pools, but is there a better way?

Good Afternoon everyone, I have been tasked by my job to take the lead on testing the iPad for the Digital Multimedia Course at my school. I have a few design apps on this, but I assume some of you are using this at your school and have been for awhile. I am calling on you for assistance in every area of this.  Some example questions: Is there an app that you use to display a presentation so that it shows up on all devices at the same time? I know about the Adobe Content Viewer, but are there others... Read More
