Adobe & The University of Melbourne

Brian Chau and I ran two Adobe in Education product demo sessions at the University of Melbourne for a total of over forty lecturers and support staff from a wide range of faculty areas.


The University of Melbourne have an agreement with Adobe allowing access to the latest Adobe Creative Cloud software.

During these sessions, Brian and I covered the following products …

  • Photoshop
  • Adobe Experience Design
  • Character Animator
  • Acrobat DC
  • Adobe Spark
  • Premiere Pro &
  • InDesign

A particular highlight for me was catching up with former student of mine from Strathcona Laura (Loz) Fernandez who now works at the University as the Coordinator (Student Enrichment) at Faculty of Business and Economics.

Adobe @ Northern Bay SC, Geelong


Northern Bay College in Geelong, Victoria was the second of two Adobe in Education regional events organised by DLTV last week.


Northern Bay College is only seven years old. It was formed in 2011 by merging nine Geelong based Victorian government schools (primary & secondary) into one multi-campus College.

During this event, the teachers work-shopped how to make the most of the Adobe Spark Tools as well as Photoshop & Character Animator in a range of curriculum classroom settings.

We also spent some time focusing on video production with Adobe Premiere Pro. One of the visiting teachers was the father of celebrated Victorian media student Isaac Haigh from Kardinia International College. We watched Isaac’s award winning video Doomed To Repeat and discussed his use of Premiere Pro and After Effects.

Note that this film is not recommended for children under the age of 15.
