A few years ago Adobe Education did a beta test for a Photoshop streaming app for the Google Chromebook. https://edex.adobe.com/projectphotoshopstreaming Does anyone know if this went any further than the beta test?

I am a student learning Instructional Design, and I need to make an e-Learning Portfolio. I have seen some pretty amazing examples on the web, but I have very limited experience designing content for the web.

Is anyone out there using Adobe in their lessons to develop and mixed reality content? If so are you incorporating it in your classwork? How has it been going? We are looking into bringing this into our Multimedia fold and are curious if anyone has any experience and how it's been going. Thanks in advance.

I would love to know more about what is out there and what teachers are using. I know that it might be too expensive right now to use AR, but I hope that there is something that can help the students get on board with using technology to learn. Are there an Adobe tools that can help with this process?

Hi Folks! I teach high school digital media and I have a student who is preparing for his final portfolio presentation. He wants to create an Avatar on Character Animator to present his portfolio so that my student can sit concealed from the audience and project onto the white board remotely using an Apple TV. Is there anyway he can project a live Avatar-type character over a Spark, Behance or Adobe Pf digital portfolio? How about an animated PDF? Any ideas for how we can do this?

Any thoughts on the 2016 Macbook Pro being stripped down?

I am ready to buy a new macbook pro and went to configure it while browsing on line. I realized there is no option of 32gb of ram. That seems really short sided and almost like a planned obsolescence. I am a huge fan of Macs but this lack of upgrade options and a lack of ports and options has me looking at PC's like Lenovo P50 and Dell XPS 15. Curious what other Creative professionals and Graphics Instructors think/feel about this.

In the subject graphics in Queensland there have been a lot of changes with more of a focus on presentation and design. I am keen to teach and get students to use InDesign instead of Microsoft programs. Have you had success with this and do you have any teaching resources developed?

As a Digital Campus leader for my high school, I have given many PD workshops about Adobe products. However, I think the teachers are frustrated with the limitations of software avalable to them. I've demonstrated Adobe Spark, and they all seem to love the versitility of that application. I feel I may be missing something. What other Adobe applications do you like to share with teachers that will engage their students and require little to no effort on the teachers part? My teachers seem so overwhelmed... Read More

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. --- Ben Forta

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 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?"

Hi everyone, 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

Character Animator - Creating Avatars that will brand your learning content

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
