Just a quick note to let you know that we've updated Adobe Spark Video with support for, yep, video. This has been the #1 requested Spark Video enhancement, and we're excited to see what students (and their teachers) do with this new functionality.
Here is the announcement.
As always, feedback is welcome and appreciated.

I am currently creating a Canvas course for my 3rd grade students. This LMS is new to me. I am thinking of using it as part of blended instruction. Have you used it in your classroom? How do you use it?

How did you use the Hour of Code challenge with your students?

How do you help students add visual interest to their presentations and projects without resorting to the cliche' of clip art? Share your suggested resources for finding vector assets, stock photography, and other types of visual assets that help young people keep their design work fresh.

I participate in the national wide movement of "Hour of Code" this week. We had to "trick" or beg our principal to participate because he thought it took away the educational process. I guess what he means is "Where is the pencil and paper work?"

Interested in examples of augmented or virtual reality being used in the classroom.
Seems like a great teaching tool, especially for simulations!

Adobe Audition is a fantastic tool to use in the classroom, for projects or for preparing assets for lessons. But most of the time it's too much effort to set up the notebook and the mic for recording, so I use my Android mobile. Unfortunately there is no mobile app from Adobe for sound recording, so I use "Parrot" and Dropbox to record and sync the files.
It would be so helpful, if Adobe could offer a mobile app for sound recording that syncs with CreativeCloud! Maybe with some fea... Read More

Why change isn’t always a good thing
Change is constant. Let me just put that out there for the
minute. Change is constant. The only thing we can be sure about is that
things will change. That’s whether we
are relating this to technology, environment or life in general. I know I’m stating the blooming obvious here
but the question today is. Do we embrace
change for the sake of just wanting something different from what we know or
should we wait till there’s a fundamental chan... Read More

I have been using the character animator software to create an avatar for eLearning courses. His name is AJ and he's quirky and fun.
My theory is that avatars can have personality, like "Flo" for Progressive Insurance... or the Geico Gecko.
If learning utilizes branding strategies that have already shown an impact on audience appreciation -- I think we can make better strides with making our content engaging.
The character animator tool is terrific for this.
Am I alone -- or have... Read More

I have been blessed with the motherlode of one time funding as part of a CTE Incentive Grant. I have two sequences: Cinematic Arts and Graphic Arts. As part of another grant last year, I upgraded to professional 4K cameras and got a 4K TV for my classroom. From the grant I also just upgraded my 2011 27" iMacs to 20 GB ram from 4GB and PS and AI work great.
Anyhow, my CTE Facilitator said, "No, you need a new lab." Who I am to say no? Here is my dilemma .... Both Cinematic Arts and... Read More

I have been thinking and sketching for a long time on a solution I name Adobe Nemus.
In Adobe Nemus your software is not specified by tools. It is primarly focusing on your working space. You preload tools in the start setup and therefore its name. Its your quiet space and your delfined tools.
Maybe all you need is a couple of pens and a bucket. Decide that! Nemus will let you know the consequenses, how much RAM or how much processor speed or cache that will be needed.... Read More

I'm hoping other members could suggest great current video control surfaces that they are using in conjunction with Adobe Premiere for video editing. There are quite a few choices out there.

Just wondering if anyone knows any way to record audio narration first and then video afterwards?
I think it is a better workflow (and ends up being
quicker than recording both at once or recording audio after). We have found that scripting first, recording the script, and then carrying out the actions accompanied by the recording gets us much more professional results (and is also quicker). It also gives us a script to paste in for closed captions so that we can ensure the most inclusive project possibl... Read More

I have recently explored a variety of applications, such as, Splashtop, Display Note and Air Server. I am leaning towards Splashtop as it is user friendly and little delay between devices. Students have the ability to watch and record the teachers screen, which I think is awesome for students to learn Adobe applications and record as their own personal tutorial. Obviously, this creates added responsibility for the teacher as they are being recorded but saves time as The teacher doesn't need... Read More

I took a class in game design a few weeks ago and I though it was wonderful but at the same I though it was lacking something. Unity 3D is a very powerful engine that allows you to create many things not just games. You can do animation, short films, etc. It depends on your creativity as always you can use the same tools as someone else and excel on it while others do not find as it enjoyable or successful as you did. You are the key but I have discovered that doing classes here in Adobe Education Exc... Read More

Voice, Slate, and now Post have proven to be incredibly popular with teachers and students alike. The apps are fun and free, and more goodness is on the way. The product team would love the opportunity to chat with educators about using these apps in edu, as well as to demonstrate some of the improvements and enhancements that they are working on. If your school would like to host a PD session, let us know. We’d need you to help get the word out to local schools and teachers, and we’ll come by t... Read More

In today's budget-stretched higher ed environment, I am sure that I am not the only ed tech leader to hear department heads choose open source produce over the Creative Suite. In addition to the ease of training for the Adobe products, I also see the huge time savings that come from using Creative Suite products. Has anyone written any papers or documented reserch to prove the value to using professional software vs. open source options?

You've heard us talk about Adobe Voice and Adobe Slate previously, both of which have been embraced by educators and students worldwide. Today we released the third app in the series, Adobe Post is an iPhone app (initially) that lets you create stunning graphics designed specifically for social and sharing.
Check it out, and let us know what you think!

Love Adobe Voice on your iPad? Longing to have all that storytelling goodness on your iPhone, too? Well, we're now testing Voice for iPhone, and if you'd like to give it a try, you can sign up here. Teachers (and students) have long been Voice's biggest fans, and we'd love feedback from you guys as we go through final testing. Thanks.

This is a resource question. In speaking with colleagues from various institutions of higher learning across the country, I have heard diverse stories about how institutions are investing in digital tools and online learning. These varies from small investments in faculty development to learn to use LMS, institution wide revamping of equipment and access to further training, or middle ground of enabling individual faculty members to gain capacities and purchase technology for class use--recording/photograph...
