I can see that there is improvements in Animate and how we import them into After Effects for post processing tasks. Now, Animate streamlines this workflow by providing a plug-in for After Effects. we can import Animate files into After Effects to composite them with a video or render them as video with more creative effects.

What are some resources that you use to teach students about accessibility? Unfortunately and surprisingly, Adobe CC InDesign Classroom in a Book includes nothing to help me teach students about accessibility. I use Adobe's Website about InDesign Accessibility and's Creating Accessible Documents Page I just created today for students about InDesign Accessibility

One of my top teaching philosophies is: Learn something, Use something, and then Teach it to others. I have started to do this with students, and it has been working out great. I first teach the students about the three ways to create in Spark. Then I have them do both group and individual projects. The last step is to have then teach their parents at least one part of Spark and then talk about the experience in class. Some of the stories have been great.

I'm looking for a digital program or app that I can use to share digital lesson plans with my students. I've tried quite a few but I'm just not happy with any of them because they either have limitations in what I can post, files sizes limits, brings students outside of the site to view items, etc. I'm looking for somewhere that I can house you tube links, webpages, google documents, and student examples.

Infographics seems like a great way to develop informative and visually appealing educational materials that can both teach students as well as challenge them. And InDesign is an intuitive and easy way to create an infographic. In my field of Political Science (university level), infographics can be used to display basic information such as the types (with examples) of Presidential powers to more complex issues like the Presidential Selection process.

Hello, I am currently teaching in the graphic design program at a University in Wisconsin. We have been talking about how to update our curriculum so our design students are better prepared for the professional world. Are there any working designers/art directors/creative directors/etc out there able to provide some guidance? What are you looking for from a recent grad? What are things they should know? What are things that will put them a step above? What are most recent grads missing? Would love to... Read More

For an undergraduate-level college course on typography, would you recommend teaching Illustrator or InDesign to the students? I only have enough class time for one of them in addition to the rest of the typography-specific instruction that I want to include. InDesign is great for teaching page layout while Illustrator is great for teaching typographic composition and typeface design. I would appreciate the thoughts of other educators on the topic as I develop my curriculum.

I'm currently working on a learning and teaching event poster on VR and empathy - both in designing the experience with empathy for the user and to have empathy as a learning outcome. I thought I'd start a discussion on the impact of these immersive technologies on learning. First, to define the terms in basic terms VR - Virtual Reality - an immersive experience that is all in a computer simulated reality. AR - Augmented Reality - a live overlay of digital to a real-world environment. MR - Mixed Reality... Read More

In Higher Education, students often move from the classroom to the field on various projects. I'm interesting in the ways that Adobe products can facilitate this practice, but in a creative way, such as using Spark to create on the fly presentations in the field and brought back to class and shared. Student resources would consist of a smartphone, Adobe Spark, and perhaps Adobe Photoshop Express and Photoshop Fix and Mix. The types of field work could range from biology and environmental science, to sociol... Read More

Hi! Does anyone have the ability, or know of the ability, to share resources directly within Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, etc... without the need for CC libraries access? My school has CC for a few labs, and my room specifically has 24 PCs running the full suite of CC apps - however - the students do not have cloud access. We simply have PC licenses, not user specific ones. I'm looking to have a library for the students to be able to pull from easily (right now, they can use files on a server tha... Read More

Our high school has been deficient in its offering of electives for several years. I'd like to convince our school and district that we need to start offering classes that feature the use of Adobe Creative Cloud products - Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere, After Effects, Spark, Dreamweaver, etc. Our school district and school are somewhat behind on technology. I have my principal's ear, but I'm having trouble finding published information or presentations on "why" we should offer these... Read More

It seems like every time I go on Spark it takes forever to load or it won't load at all. I've tried different browsers, different times of day, different internet connections with no luck. I'm trying to work on creating presentations for my classroom but if the site isn't consistent then that will be a problem.

I jumped on Adobe Illustrator and started to experiment with the figures and I quickly found the idea that was going to work.Creating an illustration in Adobe Illustrator is e... Read More
