I see some great potential for using some of the simpler Adobe apps in the library. What ideas do you have for using these products to promote the library and what it offers?

I have 30 years advertising experience and have mentored and trained hundreds of employees but never taught a class. I will now be joining University of New Mexico where I just moved to teach Graphic Design and Intro to Web Design. Any pointers on how to speak to young folks who are paying to learn vs being paid to learn ( in the filed training is PAID to learn VS college is PAYING to learn) I'm a bit nervous about the approach but not sure I need to be :)

I am new to this community, and I am intrigued by Adobe Premier Rush. There is a free course coming up titled "60-Second Documentary" that would be great for my teaching subject- Social Studies. My question is: Have you ever incorporated Adobe Premier Rush into your lesson (SS in particular), and have you ever assigned students to create their own video(s) using Adobe Premier Rush? If students have created a video, how was their response to this particular technology resource? Was it difficult to... Read More

We have been working with Adobe Creative Cloud Student licenses this past school year. It's changed the way we have taught our classes and really created a student-centered learning experience where the students can learn in any environment, not just in the computer lab. One issue we've come across as our school year ended was what happens to student work in Creative Cloud - especially Portfolio upon graduation? We really want to use Portfolio for our students Digital Portfolios - but ended up using Adob... Read More

Do you think that we can learn to draw to someone who does not know how to draw, using Photoshop and Illustrator software. It is clear that for a person who has a gift and who can draw, we can teach him how to improve with Photoshop and Illustrator.

So, I've been a journalism educator for more than 15 years, and in the past few years I've gotten much more involved in eLearning, teaching courses online and working with other faculty to do the same. The most I get into the eLearning world, the more I see parallels between journalism and education. Or more generally, both are about bringing prosocial change, providing individuals the information and resources they need to live better lives. And both bring those changes through creating content and build... Read More

Hi all, My school district is looking to add a STEAM program to replace large group study halls. They have asked me to teach a class on Adobe products and create a "course description" for what that would look like. I am wondering if anyone can direct me to an existing page that already outlines some of the connections between Adobe and STEAM curriculum. thanks

After beginning to take the course about Adobe Spark through the EdEx, I started thinking about how I might use the program with my students. In the past, it's been an option, but students have either not chosen it when they present their work or said it was too difficult to learn. I'm wondering...what have been your experiences with using Spark in the classroom? Do you students like it?

I currently have my senior graphic designers create a children's book in Illustrator and InDesign with the target audience being local 2nd graders. I am looking to create a meaningful high level project for these advanced graphic designers (I have them for 4 years in a high school conservatory) that goes beyond the local setting and create a project that can impact students and people on a larger, possible global community scale, any ideas? Project ideas?

Curious as to what other educators in BFA, BA, or BD programs specializing in Graphic and Interactive Design advice students to put into their professional portfolios. Specifically how many projects do you encourage them to include and what is the range of scale of the projects? We are now suggesting 6-9 projects that are fairly robust. They typically include applications across platforms. I have heard and read that most employers only look at 1-3 projects, so wondering how many they actually need to focus... Read More

Students will prepare slide presentation about color theory (work in team 3-4) using Adobe Spark or any relevent online presentations. Students need to understand about color palettes, color schemes such as monochromatic, analogous, complementary, tint and shade etc.

Illustrator Question about Image Trace Advance control for Paths

Can someone help me with this? I have always believed - and it seems to play out in application - that when you adjust the Paths in the Advanced controls dialog box that the higher the number of paths the tighter the fit. However recently I saw this on Adobe's Help site: Advanced controls Fine-tune your tracing result using advanced options in the Image Trace options. Paths Controls the distance between the traced shape and the original pixel shape. Lower values create a tighter path fitting; higher... Read More
