Adobe Enables Distance Learning Worldwide for Schools Impacted by COVID-19
March 17, 2020 News


The past few weeks have shown us that, even in times of uncertainty, our schools and business communities remain strong and resourceful, all while continuing to find creative ways to maintain learning and business continuity.

Due to COVID-19, many schools are facing physical campus closures and moving to online learning as Adobe is announcing that we’re giving greater access to Adobe Creative Cloud desktop apps to facilitate distance learning. Adobe believe that doing so will make it possible to keep coursework, teamwork, and student progress on track through at-home access to Creative Cloud for students and educators.

Adobe will give the higher education and K-12 institutional customers globally starting today — who currently make Creative Cloud apps available to students who login through on-campus labs — the ability to request temporary “at-home” access for their students and educators. This will be granted through May 31, 2020 at no additional cost.

Adobe also know that delivering engaging experiences through distance learning is a new paradigm for many teachers and faculty. Through Adobe’s community, they’ve curated resources to help educators and school leaders discover inspiring projects, best practices, and new ideas so they can continue to drive valuable learning in virtual environments.

As Adobe has a vital role to play in schools, businesses, and government agencies, and earlier this week, they’ve began to offer free 90-day access to Adobe Connect, the web conferencing solution, until July 1, 2020. This offer gives users the ability to join meetings, trainings, and virtual classrooms from the safety of their homes.

As our education customers work to ensure both safety and learning continuity in their communities, it is Adobe’s goal to help them with the tools they need to move through these uncertain times. Adobe’s commitment to do so in a seamless way continues to be unwavering.
