Adobe has stepped up to help offer temporary student use of Adobe Create Cloud on their personal devices

Please review this announcement and let  us know if there are any questions.

Excerpt from this announcement

Starting today, we’re giving our higher education and K-12 institutional customers globally — who currently make Creative Cloud apps available to students who login through on-campus labs — the ability to request temporary “at-home” access for their students and educators. This will be granted through May 31, 2020 at no additional cost. To learn more and request access, please follow this link.

We also know that delivering engaging experiences through distance learning is a new paradigm for many teachers and faculty. Through our community, we’ve curated resources to help educators and school leaders discover inspiring projects, best practices, and new ideas so they can continue to drive valuable learning in virtual environments. For more information on Adobe’s distance learning resources please click here.

Adobe also has a vital role to play in schools, businesses, and government agencies, and earlier this week we began to offer free 90-day access to Adobe Connect, our web conferencing solution, until July 1, 2020. This offer gives users the ability to join meetings, trainings, and virtual classrooms from the safety of their homes. To learn more, please check out the Adobe Connect blog here.

As our education customers work to ensure both safety and learning continuity in their communities, it is our goal to help them with the tools they need to move through these uncertain times. Our commitment to do so in a seamless way continues to be unwavering.

Empowering Students through Creative Technologies: A Digital Literacy Primer

Justin Hodgson, Associate Professor of Digital Rhetoric at Indiana University and founding editor of The Journal for Undergraduate Multimedia Projects, will share insight into the importance of digital literacy and digital creativity in higher education. By using compelling student examples, this short presentation will show how critical and creative digital literacy skills can empower students (from underrepresented to advanced) to better engage course content, to discover new capacities for expression, and to learn to thrive (as thinkers, creators, and communicators) in a rapidly-changing, digitally saturated world.

The following Terms and Conditions apply to this agreement:

Adobe Desktop Software PSLT 2019v1 released April 9, 2019

Creative Cloud and Document Cloud PSLT 2019v1 released April 9, 2019

Adobe General Terms 2017v1

This agreement is limited to regular NERCOMP members as defined by the NERCOMP by-laws (that is, state, municipal or non-profit accredited institutions of education, which are authorized to grant degrees, from the states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont). Adobe will review FTE count and other organizational details prior to formal acceptance.

Legal Note:

NERCOMP negotiates the best prices and terms possible for its members and works with outside legal counsel to facilitate the arrangements between NERCOMP and the vendors. Any license or agreement accessed or entered into as a benefit of a Consortium Member’s NERCOMP membership is contingent on that institution remaining an active NERCOMP member for the full term of the license or agreement.  For example, if a license agreement lasts for a 3 year term, then the Consortium Member must renew its annual NERCOMP membership at least twice to remain an active Consortium Member for the full 3 year term. Failure of a Consortium Member to timely renew its NERCOMP membership status during the term of the license or agreement may result in either a) termination of the license or agreement or b) loss of the discount pricing available exclusively to NERCOMP Consortium members.

Outside counsel conducts an initial legal review of licenses and agreements on behalf of NERCOMP but does not provide an individualized review on behalf of any particular member institution. Each member institution signs its contracts with vendors individually and the institution itself is liable for the rights and obligations therein. Members are strongly encouraged to have their contracts reviewed internally by their own counsel.

NERCOMP also negotiates separate agreements with individual vendors governing NERCOMP’s own relationship with the vendor. Although NERCOMP members are not parties to these agreements, NERCOMP will make copies of available to any member for review, upon request.

Archival materials on this site are not necessarily accessible. NERCOMP will timely respond to any specific requests to make any specific document accessible.
