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 INR 1000 per month until 25 June, 2013," said Sunil P.P, Director-Education, South Asia, Adobe Systems.
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 India. 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 India, 41% of educators responded that they need more tools and training to help them promote creativity in the classroom," said Sunil P.P, "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.
