Hi, I am recently working with Adobe Premiere Rush and I find it fascinating. My project involves filming a music band that merges language and sound here in Bremen, Germany. I have used Rush to put up together a video merging their use of language (German and Spanish) and editing it with relevant music. Three subjects in one final bundle. We will be presenting this in various language workshops in Spain and Germany as well.

Has anyone been able to change the email address for the Enterprise Agreement of the institution with which they work? I have a new job at a different university so I will lose access to my current university email address. I don't want to lose access to all the Spark Learning Journals I have created for the various courses I've been doing as I upskill with Adobe. I want to be able to use these resources in my teaching at my new university. It seems counter-intuitive not to be able to access them as I conti... Read More

Photoshop is a industry standard programme with so much functionality. I work in a school where we use CS6 and this has some options to change in Window and you can edit these individually. I wonder if there is a way to download other settings for example I would love numbers next to the tools (visual icons are great but can be overwhelming initially to students) A simple numeric so instruction fifth tool down the left hand side bar etc could initially help advance learners more efficiently. Currently I des... Read More

Both myself and some of my students are interested in creating digital books (think children's books). I understand the concepts of creating the designs in Illustrator and/or Photoshop, but we've been thinking about how cool it would be to be able to digitally turn pages and have the artwork interact with the reader in some way. Does anyone know of any ways that might happen?

Some students may suffer from reading or viewing the projector screen in the computer Labs specially the ones sitting far from it. So I suggest using the following options for Mac desktop or Windows desktop if needed, it will be very helpful as you can configure it to “zoom in” or “zoom out” your Mac screen , or windows screen . this zoom features and draw, moving around while zoomed etc.. will help our students a lot , as many default font sizes, icons and tools are too small. 1-...

For those of you who have organized or participated in some, how has the experience been? I know there are a couple of ways I want my students to experience film festivals. One is through possibly participating in one locally; the other way is by organizing an on-campus one. Most of my students are animators, although we do have video production classes on campus. I'm wondering...for those of you who have organized them, what has been your process in doing that? What kinds of categories do you include, ho... Read More

There's a few file format in Photoshop. Out of the 25 file types found in Photoshop's "Save As" dialog box, there's really only a handful of them that most of us will ever use. Discuss and eloborate with your team members about all the formats.

I've been trying to find tools that will allow my students (creatives, not coders) to create AR/VR content for playback on web/Rift/Vive/Go/Quest/cardboard+smartphone/anything really. I had hoped to use Tour Creator and Poly to have students create Google Expeditions but our school system does not allow students to have Google accounts and blocks the sites in question. I then thought I would have the students use Adobe Captivate 2019 which appears to have support for VR/360 images/360 video (I'm not sure... Read More

Walking along the harbour (Sydney) I noticed the wharves had a safety fence lining the entire edge to the water in a way where you could not get close enough to see in the water. It made me consider what is the impact of our current risk aversion culture having on student creativity?

An art teacher recently mentioned the work of Thom Pastrano as an inspiration for graphic design classes. I had not seen his work prior to her mention, which leads me to ask.... who are the overlooked or emerging artists you teach that other teachers should definitely look into?

I have been teaching graphic design and video production for a long time. This year I am teaching photography for the first time. I don't have any storage for photography camera and gear, so I need some suggestions. Video cameras are larger and in large bags, so I just have heavy duty shelving for the video gear. Photography cameras are smaller and if we are shooting during class a lot I don't need the cameras to always be in bags. I am looking for a solution to store cameras sans bags (or bags next to them... Read More

I am looking for a picture book InDesign children's picture book template for my 8th graders. They will be doing an assignment where they create a computer information picture book for younger students. This is an introductory assignment for InDesign and I don't want the students main focus to be on how to set up a book in InDesign. Instead, how to work with a template and learn about computers. I am not skilled enough to create one myself and have not found any online that have a cover page & Inside... Read More

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
