Adobe Extends Support To Businesses And Schools Globally Amidst COVID-19

With communities around the world coming together to tackle COVID-19, organizations are increasingly considering creative measures to continue everyday activities and resume normalcy. While businesses are adopting remote working arrangements and trying virtual channels to stay connected, schools are moving to online educational platforms and tools to continue learning, all while keeping their people safe.

In light of the situation, Adobe announces greater access to customers (organisations and schools) globally for two of its solutions. This includes – Adobe Creative Cloud desktop apps to facilitate distance learning so students and teachers can continue with coursework and collaboration with at-home access to Creative Cloud as well as Adobe Connect (Adobe’s web conferencing solution) that can help enterprises with business continuity, governments with rapid response and schools with virtual classrooms.

Key Highlights

  • Adobe Creative Cloud – From 12 March to 31 May 2020, higher education and K-12 institutional customers who use Creative Cloud apps via on-campus labs will be able to request “at-home” access for their students and teachers. This will be available across the globe, including ITE (Singapore) and Taylor’s University (Malaysia), at no extra cost. Learn more here.
  • Adobe Connect – Organizations and institutes can avail free 90-day access to Adobe Connect to participate in meetings, trainings, and virtual classrooms from the safety of their homes, until 1 July 2020. More details here.

In support of continued and engaged learning through virtual tools, Adobe has also curated resources to share inspiring projects, best practices, and new ideas.
