Adobe Apps for Education

Presentation Published 10/8/13 Last updated on 11/28/17

Adobe Apps for Education provides an introduction to Adobe software applications, helps you learn what you can create, and inspires with ideas for sample projects using these tools.

The document categorizes the types of digital content that you can create with Adobe software applications and identifies which tools are best for creating different kinds of content. Each content category includes sample projects for beginner, intermediate, and expert Adobe users. Some projects include hyperlinks to tutorials on Adobe Help and the Adobe Education Exchange.

The document also includes an Adobe app glossary to help you easily identify the wide diversity of software applications Adobe offers.

This document is published in three different formats:

  • Low resolution interactive PDF file - this version is ideal for sharing digitally or sending over email and includes hyperlinks to tutorials
  • High resolution interactive PDF file - this version is ideal for sharing digitally and includes hyperlinks to tutorials
  • Print PDF - this version is ideal for printing for use in classrooms, but does not contain hyperlinks to tutorials.

A bit overwhelming at first glance but a great overview!

Charlotte Johnson

Posted on 8/17/16 3:49:48 PM Permalink

I would use this for orientation in different ways; this could be allowing the participants in the professional development sessions to explore the site, get them to try out the different apps and to allow them to take a copy of the tutorials home for them to practice after the sessions have finished.

Katherine Schlagheck

Posted on 8/9/16 9:48:53 AM Permalink

Great overview and is easy to follow and show to fellow educators.

Jeannette Barreto

This is excellent. I will use this to navigate through what programs I can use first and move on to others as needed.

So many options and resources available! I have used many of these, but I know I have a LOT to learn in terms of making the best use of these apps and tools.

Lacey Fulton

Posted on 7/15/16 4:17:33 PM Permalink

I use this information when introducing Adobe CC to my students.

Keith Thompson

It is still blowing me away that Adobe offers so many tools for creation. This is amazing and incredible.

Nice to have so many tutorials to get some inspiration.

jacqui hewitt

I have not used these tutorials or videos previously. I will use the link and read over the specific tutorials before I teach the component. They are excellent!

Dionne Felix

I have not use wall of these, but I am excited to begin integrating them into my lectures.

Henry Sandoval

Posted on 7/11/16 8:07:10 PM Permalink

I have used the main Phostoshop, Acrobat, Illustrator and Indesign Apps and now that I know of the many more, I am going to use them.

Alan Ashton

Posted on 7/11/16 7:56:24 PM Permalink

This can be used to identify all the tools available and help them decide on what tools they want to use and learn more about.

Kelly Statum

Posted on 7/11/16 5:24:39 PM Permalink

I love that the PDF file links directly to the intro/training page for each app.

Melissa Moebus

Posted on 7/11/16 4:47:25 AM Permalink

These is a great knowledge of tutorials and templates. Very helpful

Melissa Campuzano

Posted on 7/6/16 6:15:09 PM Permalink


Walter Ries

Posted on 7/5/16 7:22:09 PM Permalink

Too many apps!!!!

As a beginner, I don't need to know all the add-on applications and fine point tuning (e.g. which audio optimization for my home movie). It would be nice to segregate the basic applications from the remainder that are for expert users.

Mike Donoghue

Posted on 7/5/16 3:26:17 PM Permalink

This will prove helpful when I demonstrate each application's personal value and try to equate it to an individual's role/responsibilities.

Lee-Anne Campbell

Posted on 7/4/16 7:28:53 PM Permalink

Great tool to help me organize the tools and offer guidance to collegues.

David Ewart

Posted on 7/2/16 6:05:30 PM Permalink

MENU OF SERVICES: I like it as it gives a 30,000 foot view of the Adobe landscape. A user could then hone in on their area of interest. This could be a powerful tool in creating break-out groups based on interest for additional work-shops.

Mischelle Hunter

Posted on 7/2/16 4:15:17 PM Permalink

I think this is great for people who want to dive right into the world of adobe, however, it could be very intimidating for apprehensive beginners. I personally think it's great for me to keep caught up on everything, thanks!

Kim Clark

Posted on 7/1/16 2:10:23 AM Permalink

Thank you. This will prove very useful.

Neil Cross

Posted on 6/30/16 1:35:13 PM Permalink

WOW!! A plethora of activity here. A huge distraction for someone like me who has trouble staying on task :P I felt like I was playing snakes and ladders... just when I thought I'd done enough to satisfy my curiosity I found something else to play with and came up for air about an hour later.

I would like to see the use of more buttons or colour in place of hyperlinks. This would lend itself to a more graphical user experience and help discern a link to a specific type of resource.

Doris Culton

Posted on 6/30/16 12:19:30 AM Permalink

This is a great resource to help me keep the various Adobe products organized in my head, as well as giving me ideas as to how to use the products.

Really helps with sorting through the numerous tools that are available!

Robert Leneway

Posted on 6/29/16 4:24:32 PM Permalink

An excellent resource for providing an overview to Adobe products.

Elizabeth Calabria

Posted on 6/29/16 4:16:23 PM Permalink

I agree this is a great tool to just figure out where you want to start.

Bellanira Cochran

Posted on 6/29/16 7:02:15 AM Permalink

This PDF file is awesome! It will help me easily find the tools I may need, depending on the requirement.

Margaret McClellan

Posted on 6/29/16 6:19:16 AM Permalink

This was a helpful breakdown and overview of Adobe options & how and when to use them-

I particularly liked the 3 levels; beginner, intermediate and expert; they clarified for me what proficiency should be required for more sophisticated projects as well as what to aim for as a good solid basis skill set/mastery.

Doris Culton

Posted on 6/29/16 8:29:32 PM Permalink

I agree. I like the way it is organized.

Katherine Reeves

Posted on 6/29/16 1:43:08 AM Permalink

This is an amazing idea and such a great tool for any trainer. This really helps show the best use for each of the programs offered.

Carleather Ponder

Posted on 6/28/16 7:52:24 PM Permalink

Wow , I never knew there were so many apps for educators - I am going to try to introduce some of them to our principal and hopefully to the entire faculty and staff

Karel te Lintel Hekkert

Posted on 6/28/16 5:10:05 PM Permalink

It looks nice, but when I clicked at a beginners part in images and pictures, it says it is an expertlevel. In my class it is easier to start with movies they can copy, so they can buitd some selfconfidence. But as a source for finding projects, I wil probably going to use it.

Rena Hanaway

Posted on 6/28/16 3:07:40 PM Permalink

Absolutely beautiful resource. Thank you! I am showing my inexperience and it might be obvious and I am missing it, but which tool was used to create this pdf?

rich relkin

Posted on 6/28/16 2:07:16 PM Permalink

I think the map is good for someone who is well versed in these apps... but is far to confusing for a new or even moderately proficient adobe user. There should be a weeding out of the most important apps... then a second level with additional apps.

Peter Fehler

Posted on 6/28/16 1:42:01 PM Permalink

Great resource. Nice to see less familiar software bundled into certain tasks.

Keri Callan

Posted on 6/28/16 5:01:14 AM Permalink

Awesome to be able to search through all these resources!

Andrea Cooperberg

This is a great guideline. Thanks.

Colleen Martin

Posted on 6/27/16 10:53:27 PM Permalink

Thanks for the PDF resource to better understand what Apps apply to what tasks!
I will share these with my students!

Tanya McLean

Posted on 6/27/16 7:23:39 PM Permalink

Loved the resources. Great tools!

Christian Maldonado

Posted on 6/27/16 6:18:37 PM Permalink

I really like this resource. I like how it is broken up into the different sections. I really want to focus on those apps that cross-platform.

Shannon Devine

Posted on 6/27/16 5:34:22 PM Permalink

Gave a brief overview of what the collection of Apps can do but not individual ones that can be used for the different tasks.

Darla Wilson

Posted on 6/27/16 3:13:14 PM Permalink

Great source of information to get build upon and to get the creative juices to flow.

Alison Stout

Posted on 6/27/16 10:48:45 AM Permalink

This is a great learning resource! It is materials like these that I hoped to gain from this course.

Pam Morse

Posted on 6/26/16 10:55:33 PM Permalink

I love how the apps are bundled into different areas. So many! Can't wait to start playing with these!

Michelle Johnson

Posted on 6/26/16 8:01:56 PM Permalink

I like so many others, didn't realize there are that many opportunities. This is a great way to figure out what my audience needs.

Cheryl Butler

Posted on 6/26/16 7:47:42 PM Permalink

Believe the best way to share information, which may be overwhelming is in pieces. Divide teachers into grade levels and then identity one subject they would like to make more interesting for students.

Ken White

Posted on 6/26/16 2:41:57 PM Permalink

Okay! Loved it. There are so many CC Apps it is overwhelming and this breakdown by use helps a lot.

Meghan Moody

Posted on 6/26/16 12:47:24 AM Permalink

Wow! That explained so much!

Susan Seel

Posted on 6/25/16 5:29:44 PM Permalink

Brilliant tool to demonstrate range of apps. Good to have mobile apps that are free.

Maya Thompson

Can't wait to get to the mess around with all of these apps!

Roberto Fonseca

Posted on 6/25/16 12:05:37 AM Permalink

There such a variety of powerful apps for education. And they are very easy to use , especially those mobile apps. Great work from Adobe

Paula Veale

Posted on 6/24/16 2:46:08 PM Permalink

Like everyone else I am amazed how many Adobe apps there are-maybe too many to go through them all. I will definitely be using a variety of them for my future lessons.

Karie Winfree

Posted on 6/24/16 1:21:33 AM Permalink

Love that there are so many apps! My students will have fun playing with these and my staff will benefit from having A TON of resources to work with!

Keith Thompson

Posted on 6/23/16 7:52:17 PM Permalink

Wow! I had no clue that Adobe had this rich a suite. I'm going to take some time to process these over the coming weeks. It's too much to take in with one sitting. I'm pleasingly surprised to know that long after this certification is complete the education continues with learning about applications I'm only beginning to hear about. It's starting to feel like Christmas.

Carla Davis

Posted on 6/23/16 7:12:59 PM Permalink

I had no idea Adobe had so many apps. I am excited to see what the apps can do for me and my classroom.

Elizabeth Vanausdeln

Posted on 6/23/16 1:28:00 PM Permalink

I am excited to learn more about ADOBE and all it has to offer.

Allen Kaatz

Posted on 6/23/16 12:00:27 PM Permalink

I look forward to seeing the direction that this course is going to take me and the tools that I will learn and how I can apply it for practical classroom use. Many application titles that I have never heard of or used.

This is a great overall resource of all the products that Adobe has to offer for education. Plus it is great how it breaks down for the separate uses and which program fits best for the final purpose.


Posted on 6/1/16 6:46:32 PM Permalink

For sure Adobe has a lot of App. I am glad to get my hands on this pdf. Now I know what could I use.

This is a good guide to help select the right Adobe product for the right task. It's also a pretty amazing testament to how comprehensive the Adobe suite is.

Posted on 5/13/16 5:02:47 PM Permalink

This is really useful and helpful as a conceptual guideline for the teacher/trainers to provide a comprehensive learning/lesson plan for selected or even all apps.

Based on the guide, teacher will be able to develop further and add suitable contents that they should focus on any apps they'd prefer.

Thank you.

This tool is amazing. I love how it breaks it down into categories and then levels. It would be so helpful to have this, i would be able to use it to pinpoint the exact programs coworkers would need for their projects.

This is helpful for me because of the capacity in which I often work with teachers. As I am often helping teachers develop curriculum and pairing them with the software that makes the most sense for their unit. This is definitely a great tool that can help teachers find their direction.

Chynine Richardson

Mark Willis

Posted on 4/3/16 10:18:49 PM Permalink

Nice single place to investigate the available Adobe applications. The Adobe app glossary was helpful as it linked to descriptions of the programs and other useful information. There weren't many links elsewhere in the document.

It would definitely be a great resource to showcase all Adobe products. I would use it to introduce the apps and find out the direction the participants wanted to gone in.

Jennifer Farley

Posted on 4/1/16 9:59:44 AM Permalink

Wow. That is a huge resource. Very helpful as an introduction to all of Adobe's goodies. I use the same few apps all the time (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign) but it is good to be aware of what else is available.

shari hartz

Posted on 3/31/16 4:23:44 AM Permalink

I love that adobe shares some of the hot keys and tools, but the amount of information is rather overwhelming. I find that learning the big ones are most beneficial and then learn additional ones as I need the tools. It does help to know their purpose so I can use the right tools for the job.

Chris Simmons

i like the wealth of information to present.

Lo Guthrie

Posted on 3/31/16 12:29:20 AM Permalink

This is a wonderful resource, for someone who knows nothing of Adobe but the basics this was great. I agree with Cheez a key of the program icons is definitely necessary to learn each one and their use.

Cheez Denard

Posted on 3/30/16 3:15:32 PM Permalink

I think this resource could be very helpful. I could see some of the teachers needing a key of somekind for the names of the program icons. I know them by seeing the icon, but they might not know what to call each one.

Melissa Ruth

Posted on 3/22/16 3:37:32 AM Permalink

Although this is well-laid out and gives many very interesting and helpful suggestions, it is pretty overwhelming, even for someone who is comfortable with virtually all of the traditional Adobe Master Collection of programs. I don't yet understand all of the new programs, their purposes and what gaps each one fills in the capabilities of the original programs. One suggestion I would have to add to this document is a page that has a brief description of each program and its ideal usage without having to go to a separate webpage for each program.

Leticia De Leon

I do like the interactive pdf version of the apps because of the hyperlinks that explain what they do. The categorization of types of apps is also useful, given that Adobe has so many tools, it might potentially overwhelm those that consider using them.

Adobe Education

Posted on 3/9/16 2:10:11 PM Permalink

The line up has grown to a pretty dizzying array of apps. This line up might be too much for beginners. I'm afraid this might freak out some teachers with a lot of anxiety towards technology.

Dionne Felix

Mae Golden

The is a great resource! With the number of tutorials available, it will great to initiate the learning process slowly, especially with those who would be novices and totally unfamiliar.

Mark Itskowitch

Posted on 3/7/16 11:50:15 PM Permalink

Seems like the beginning of a great resource. I would prefer it to be by the app. For the web example I wouldn't be able to show all those programs at once. I guess that would work well for a semester. I definitely love the idea.. for a full class or substantial resource we would need more tutorials.... but so far really great!

What a great resource! Teachers can hang these up, post on their webpages, or share in Google drive. When they want to give students options, they can simply say, "Create a presentation or video." and let the students choose what tool to use.

Felipe Payan

sean mcclelland

Posted on 3/5/16 1:07:39 AM Permalink

Whoa. Is that all? I think... we need more apps! Ha!

Seriously, though, very nicely designed resource. I can see how this could be helpful when introducing students to the Adobe ecosystem.

I also think Adobe could look at this and ask themselves if there's a better way to group and present their cool apps and tools. There can be a good amount of overlap, and it's difficult for the consumer to keep up. I would never complain about innovation, though!

Very nice. Not only visually does it describe what the applications can be used for but links to lessons and projects are great. I was a little disappointed when I found there wasn't a link on the portfolio and presentations page for the "create a digital portfolio of coursework" sample project.I may be creating a portfolio/internship course for next year.

Nancy Raskauskas

Posted on 3/4/16 3:33:32 PM Permalink

I think this is amazing for me but would be way over the top to present to others. They would be overwhelmed. Usually teachers will come to me and ask if I have a creative solution to an assignment and I will give them 1 or 2 options. Mostly they want me to just choose one and teach it myself. There are so many cutesy online apps these days that take the pressure off of teachers to learn something new and out of their realm.

Mary-Elizabeth O'Toole

Posted on 3/4/16 9:22:46 PM Permalink

I agree with your comment, Nancy. I would be more inclined to use this as a resource to help direct instructors looking for some support but it would be wonderful to pass on to some classes / students who are preparing to deliver Adobe tools.

Megan Tighe

Deborah DiNicola

Very nice! It's helpful that it's broken down into tasks you would use the programs for. The sample projects are a great way to show the usefulness of the programs and breaking the examples into experience level is also very helpful.

The key to using this summary graphic is being able to not only show the programs but be able to say how each of these can be used to complete or enhance a particular project. Not all of these programs are part of the creative suite, such as Captivate.

Christine Ramón

Posted on 3/3/16 3:14:38 AM Permalink

The number of apps available can be overwhelming. It seems that an effective starting point would be to gauge the users initial skill level. Based on this, identify a small group of apps that would be serve the individuals needs and explain how the apps integrate with each other. Using more tools is not necessarily better.

Charlene Swoboda

Its exciting that there are so many tools and applications. Its also a little overwhelming because there are so many! I have to get over my desire/want to be an expert at everything I teach. Incorporating new media means we (teachers) get more skilled overtime with more practice, but it also means we are always still learning, too.

Mind boggling for most educators who are not interested in this type of digital media - yet! And at my middle school - most are not. They tell me that they do not have time and/or they are not interested in digital media of this level.

We do have licenses and it is loaded at my school, but presently we are creating new avenues to use it as a new school. We will push on though! My dream job is to teach these skills at the high school level.

Hi everyone - thanks for your feedback on the Adobe Apps for Education document.

It seems like it would be a great resource but many of the links are not working. I would love to use this in my training once all the links are working. I like the way it is organized. I do agree that having the name of the application pop up when you hover over the icon would be great.

This is cool document. But many of the links are broken, it seems. Most yield a 404: Page Not Found message. And I agree with the suggestion for the addition of a hover field that indicates the name of the program when you hover over its icon!

Jacob McCullough

I was thinking the same.

julie van olden

I might suggest providing the whole name of the software as you rollover the icons.

Debra Dutkiewicz

Posted on 6/24/15 1:15:20 AM Permalink

Nice! This even helps me understand the organization of the applications. Love the links! I like the addition of the types of projects that can accompany each of the applications. Many have commented on the sheer number of apps that are available. It may be a little overwhelming at first but just getting a little success at one of the applications seems to be a bit of a boost to the self-confidence. I'm always very honest about the complexity and continued evolution of these products. As an instructor I make sure that everyone realizes that I've been using some of these products for years and in many areas I'm a newbie too. From minute one of class sessions I encourage participants to share anything new they may "accidentally" happens all the time.

Jill Parry

Posted on 6/24/15 12:17:25 AM Permalink

Anything that can pull resources together into a "nutshell" is welcomed by most participants. This most certainly does that by showing what Adobe tool can accomplish what they want to do. This will be a real asset.

I love this in concept and I may want to modify it to focus primarily on the software I'm teaching in a given course. As students gained more confidence with the tool(s) they are learning, then I'd introduce the full map.

Christina Steel

Posted on 1/30/15 10:31:01 PM Permalink

I actually find this helpful, since I don't know what half the Adobe applications are intended for. I'd say have students/trainers explore the document, figure out what the icons mean, and then give them a quick informal quiz--what would you use to create a document? An app? This gives a good quick reference for what type of document you're trying to create and what tools may work best.

Tina Collier

Posted on 1/29/15 8:37:12 PM Permalink

It looks like some students would be confused by seeing so much at one time. Great explanation and visuals, which allow everyone to move forward at the own pace, however some might feel intimidated and not know where to start.

Bron Stuckey

Cynthia Manrrique

This looks like a great source to start my own learning. It is easy to read, easy to follow, and it allows the learner to build themselves from beginner to Expert, the activities look interesting and fun as well.

Catherine Stephensen

Posted on 1/26/15 2:01:30 AM Permalink

I second Christopher Hill's comment, I think that the range of tools available is amazing and that one of the things that holds people back is the fear of being exposed as a 'newbie'. I've been playing around with Photoshop for a year and because visual media is not my primary business, I am slow to develop my expertise. I think that we, as educators need to make a conscious decision to try and use these tools in everything we do & push our own experience to tits limits.

Christopher Hill

Posted on 1/24/15 11:03:44 AM Permalink

The huge array of software could be quite daunting for the uninitiated. My challenge as an educator wanting to teach creativity to other educators will be deciding what to show and what to hold back on for the beginners. (That and becoming adept with this software myself first!)

Robert G West

Posted on 1/23/15 7:13:38 AM Permalink

Mind-boggling collection of software! I had to idea that the range of Adobe products was so broad. A great resource.

Philip Nyman

Posted on 1/23/15 12:35:50 AM Permalink

Amazing resource. The learning curve for the Adobe line is probably the single greatest roadblock for their use. Showing specific examples of work, providing demos and simple projects is an excellent way of getting people 'into the pool'.

Many of the links to sample projects did not work when I clicked on them in Adobe Acrobat XI Pro. I downloaded and re-downloaded the zip file. Still not working.

Also, for those unfamiliar with the names and related icons for all the Adobe tools, would be great to have the name of the application come up when hovering over the icon.

Potentially great resource.

Adobe Education

Posted on 1/22/15 7:41:55 PM Permalink

Hi Dawn - this was noted below in the comments, but just to review, not every sample project in the document is a real resource. Only those that are real have active links. Others are merely ideas.

Also, the glossary page serves as an index for all the icons and products. It's a good idea to try to get hover text on the icons. We'll see if we can add that to the next version of the document.

There is such a wealth of product the word "Overload" actually comes to mind. Many, many extremely capable products but it makes me wonder what a newbie see's when they look at such a reference.

Excellent idea to break out into functionality because without that most folks would be lost and perhaps a number of us as well.

Great resource... but I can't see where are the hyperlinks to tutorials included in the interactive versions. Can someone help me?


Adobe Education

Posted on 11/21/14 7:45:19 PM Permalink

The links are on the category pages where the sample projects are listed. Not all sample projects have an active hyperlink. If you would like to create a new resource for a project that is listed, let us know and we'll add it!

Ana do Carmo

Posted on 11/22/14 3:47:49 PM Permalink

Thank you for the quick answer... but it seems there are no links in the documents I have downloaded :(

I've used the "view web links" on the Arobat Pro and it came up with zero!

Adobe Education

Posted on 12/2/14 10:03:31 PM Permalink

Ana - are you sure that you downloaded the right file? The Print PDF version does not have hyperlinks, but the interactive versions do.

Ana do Carmo

Posted on 12/3/14 12:12:26 AM Permalink

I'm sure that I had downloaded the "right files"... if you choose the "Download All" option the PDF files that you get are different from the individual links... I've downloaded just now only the hires version and it seems ok.

Making a roll-over with a short description is very easy to do in Acrobat.
Also making links (url) is easy.

Beautifully done and easy to use. Nor everyone is probably right away familiar with the icons, so can it made like a tool tip in your applications, means when you hoover over it with your cursor it shows the name? Then add a small box on the bottom to turn that function off, for the people which don't like it. However overall very useful and a great documents for Product Orientation.

Barbara Swanner

Posted on 8/24/14 4:19:53 PM Permalink

This is a great tool for educators. I think Piero has some interesting comments, teachers always want to know how can I use this? A key to the icons would be helpful for students and teachers new to the software.

Piero Dametto

Posted on 8/14/14 6:13:22 AM Permalink

Had not thought to provide this kind of information in a PDF format... i like it.. it would be nice to now link each icon in each category to a short description as to how this application will help you provide the tools to perform the tasks per request, also the icons for the application should have a 'description' - not all of us recognize all of the icons ie what app the PS in a light blue button? - or they could link to a page on the app... just my thoughts.. thanks

This is an excellent document to show how each of these Adobe products can be used to perform specific tasks. There is an Adobe product for almost any productivity task that needs to be performed in the workplace, classroom or for personal use.

Karen Hellyer

Posted on 7/22/14 8:08:09 PM Permalink

This could be very useful. I wonder if the application icons could link to more info about each app, or even a tutorial page?

Adobe Education

Posted on 7/29/14 7:02:36 PM Permalink

What a great idea Karen! We should have thought of that one ourselves, but that's why we have the AEE - to get feedback from amazing educators. We'll add these links in the next iteration of this document, coming soon.

I downloaded the high-res and the print, and the links seems to work for me. The PDFs can be printed on tabloid size paper. If you have a large format printer, do download the high-res to print bigger if needed. Great looking cheat-sheet! Definitely will be using in my classes down the road.

Darren Hostetter

Good functional info-graphic,does Adobe make large posters available to classrooms/computer labs? I would totally hang this on the wall of the lab I teach in.

Brian Hillier

Posted on 7/20/14 4:13:25 PM Permalink

some links are missing from the individual downloads.

Do not "Download All" because there are NO links

Damien Soukhavong

Posted on 7/20/14 10:28:53 AM Permalink

A very very handy tool if we have to present quickly Adobe product categories/tools!

If the icons were clickable it would even be better!

Danil Lapin

Posted on 7/16/14 1:18:50 PM Permalink

I want to know every program!
Unfortunately, It is a little complicated to understand what it is the program is :( For example "Pn". It takes 10 minutes to uncover all this unknowing labels (may be they are clickable, but my acrobat is saying that it is not clickable)

Lukas Engqvist

Great example of what an interactive PDF can be. Would have been great to have a view of the process of getting to the finished PDF (I have the privilege to recall some of the early drafts) to show students (and other teachers) how complicated it is to compile such a resource.

Ceallaigh Norman

This is a resource that gives clarity to the whole suite of Adobe products, their applications and their relationships. The levels of expertise break it into progressive learning areas.

Having the PDF version available in class via laptop or tablet will be handy for my students.

I really like how the apps are organized in a quick visual so you know what apps will suit your needs for a particular occasion or project.

Lorraine Nitschke

Posted on 7/9/14 1:54:23 AM Permalink

It might be a good idea to fix the "Download All" link as well! I used that, and could not find any links anywhere in the PDF! Then I just downloaded an individual document from the single links, and suddenly, all was clear. There were links to materials! That is a fantastic resource. Thank you. I will be using it.

Jacqueline Morgan

Posted on 7/9/14 1:40:58 AM Permalink

Ross Macdonald

Posted on 7/8/14 11:00:49 AM Permalink

A great document. It reinforces that there maybe more than "one way to skin a cat". different people might use totally different programs and up with a similar outcome. The diagram is great in that it shows the "level of complexity" or in a sense the cognitive level required to grasp the concepts of the program being used.

I've just downloaded for the first time and about half of the links are still dead..For instance, on the "images and pictures" page, the following are dead links:
Make quick enhancements to photos
Process camera raw files
Edit and combine images to make creative compositions
Create a 3D composition

Adobe Education

Posted on 7/8/14 4:15:53 PM Permalink

Hi Antony - not all the ideas listed have tutorials associated with them. Only those where tutorials exist are hyperlinked. If you see ideas in the document that don't have a tutorial, consider creating one for it!

Kristina Yamada

Julia Heckles

This document is a clear and informative breakdown of exactly what each Adobe product does. It could prove invaluable to the the teacher or learner who needs to know the best product(s) to choose for the project.

K Heinzen

Posted on 7/6/14 5:51:11 PM Permalink

The chart of potential projects and the appropriate Adobe application to complete the project is helpful, but I did not have any active links in the hi res interactive. I understand that I can search elsewhere on the site for info/tutorials, but not sure if there is some reason specific to me that there are no active links.

Dayna Stephens

Give an overview of one app via video prior to meeting then at PD Meetings, answer questions about basics and generate ideas for course specific projects that would benefit multiple users and encourage joint collaboration among programs. This is a great resource for new ideas! It helps me -- THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX!! with my peers.

Lisa Troxler

Posted on 7/4/14 10:35:16 PM Permalink

If one is struggling with ideas with creativity in the classroom - this is great resource. I'm an instructor I change my projects each semester. Keep it fresh and interesting. I wouldn't care to see the same thing all the time. Even for those who are new to Adobe - should not fear - your video tutorials are complete. You cover ALL areas and ALL apps.


Posted on 7/4/14 6:37:17 PM Permalink

Gives a great view of what is available to those that do not know, and they can learn more or even try the program. Adobe has something for everyone and the way they work together is great. This page is great and I will be using it in the future.

Patricia Schmidt

Posted on 7/4/14 6:33:27 PM Permalink

Pricing is an issue and it depends on your institution if they are willing to purchase a group license. Othrewise, the tools are great. It is always a good idea to have group discussion. Some student always have some info to share .

Jerry Holman
