Enhancing digital creativity in Malaysian universities


I was privileged to work with about 50 educators from 20 Malaysian universities who traveled to Kuala Lumpur for a two-day Adobe Creativity workshop.


We began the first session with an introduction Adobe in Education then moved to a series of Adobe Spark activities.

The educators were encouraged to create a Spark Page, a Spark Video and some Spark Post graphics via their laptop browser and mobile devices.

Following the Spark activities we looked at Adobe InDesign and Acrobat as a way of creating and manipulating PDF documents.

Then we had some fun with Adobe Premiere Rush and Adobe Character Animator to finish of the first day.

The second day began with an Adobe XD workshop.

Many of the educators were very excited to discover the possibilities that Adobe XD provides in relation to designing, prototyping and sharing.

The rest of this day was all about discovering resources such as the Adobe Education Exchange and the Adobe Help Centre.
