This short course is part of a series of Adobe Generation Professional Skill Builder courses designed to help educators to start using Adobe tools to become creators, not just consumers, of digital media.

Drop in for one or engage in many, but we guarantee this series will help you and your students take your digital skills and creativity to the next level.
