Extra Creative Cloud access for students at home during this time

With many schools facing physical campus closures and moving to online learning due to COVID-19, Adobe have announced this week that they are giving greater access to the Adobe Creative Cloud desktop apps to facilitate distance learning.

This will make it possible to keep coursework, teamwork, and student progress on track through at-home access to Creative Cloud for students and educators.

CC access

Adobe is providing temporary “at-home” access to higher education and K-12 institutional customers globally who currently make Creative Cloud apps available to students who login through on-campus labs. This will be granted through to May 31, 2020 at no additional cost. To learn more and request access, please follow this link.

See the official Adobe blog post about this.


Adobe have also launched a dedicated Digital Learning Resources hub on the Adobe Education Exchange to help during this climate of change (direct link: https://edex.adobe.com/distance-learning)

This helps to demonstrate that Adobe is committed to reaching and supporting education customers with additional, free teaching resources (courses, webinars, articles, blogs, lesson plans, projects, and more).
