Adobe Announces Launch of Enhanced Creative Cloud Options for Students and Teachers in Singapore
Adobe has made several major announcements for the education sector in Singapore.
The full range of Adobe® Creative Cloud™ options is now available in Singapore, including Creative Cloud Student Teacher Edition. For educational institutions, Creative Cloud for teams and Creative Cloud for enterprise options are now available through a new plan called Education Enterprise Agreement (EEA).
Adobe Creative Cloud is a subscription-based service that includes more than 30 tools and services enabling professional-grade content creation and delivery across print, web, mobile apps, video and photography.
“Adobe has expanded the range of tools and services available for students and teachers. Creative Cloud Student Teacher Edition is available at special promotional pricing of SGD 26.00 per month until 25 June, 2013,” said Vicky Skipp, Regional Director, Adobe South East Asia.
Adobe has also announced a significant update to Creative Cloud. Available in June and packed with new features, Creative Cloud reimagines the creative process through a stunning set of Creative Cloud desktop applications (“CC” apps) including Adobe Photoshop® CC, InDesign® CC, Illustrator® CC, Dreamweaver® CC and Premiere® Pro CC. Adobe’s desktop tools, previously known as Creative Suite (CS), are now branded CC to reflect that they are an integral part of Creative Cloud and sophisticated cross-device collaboration and publishing capabilities. Creative files can be stored, synced and shared, via Creative Cloud; and Behance, the world’s leading online creative community.
Adobe solutions are used extensively in schools and institutions across Singapore. In addition to helping students create projects, portfolios and resumes, the software is also used extensively by educators to help develop more engaging, rich-media curriculae, and to improve collaborative working skills among students.
“In a recent survey conducted across South East Asia, 58% of educators responded that they need more tools and training to help them promote creativity in the classroom,” said Ms Skipp. “New features and updates will be released through Creative Cloud, enabling students and educators to keep up to date with the most leading-edge technology and features, with access to the latest tools for college and career success.”
Adobe also announced that the company will focus its creative software development efforts on the Creative Cloud offering moving forward. While Adobe Creative Suite® 6 products will continue to be supported and available for purchase, the company has no plans for future releases of Creative Suite or other CS products.
New Licensing Program for Education
Adobe has also announced a significant new licensing option for primary, secondary, and higher education institutions.
The Education Enterprise Agreement (EEA) program is an easy-to-manage, term-based licensing program that gives educational institutions access to the new CC apps.
“This program helps give our institutional customers the creative tools they need to be more productive, foster creativity in teaching and learning, and help their students develop essential digital communication skills,” said Ms Skipp. During the term of the license, the institution can access all the product features and updates released by Adobe.”
Pricing and Availability
Creative Cloud for individuals includes a membership for students and teachers, Creative Cloud Student Teacher Edition. It is available on the Adobe SEA store at a special promotional price of SGD26.00 per month. The regular price is SGD39.00 per month.
In addition to EEA, Creative Cloud for enterprises under an Enterprise Term Licensing Agreement (ETLA) provides the best coverage model for institution-wide access to Creative Cloud apps and services under an Enterprise Term Licensing Agreement (ETLA).
