Adobe Singapore has unveiled an e-commerce portal, shop.adobe.com/sea/education, that it says caters to students and teachers.
The software specialist said on Monday, 4 February 2013, that its products Photoshop, InDesign and Acrobat, are offered at discounts of up to 80 percent and available for electronic download or in shrink-wrap boxes.
"Immediate electronic download to your device eliminates the delay of waiting for your software to arrive through traditional shipping methods, and reduces costs," said Janie Lim, Group Marketing Manager South East Asia, Adobe Systems.
"Buying through http://shop.adobe.com/sea/education also ensures students and teachers can be confident they are purchasing genuine Adobe software. We offer a wide choice of secure payment methods, including credit card payments," said Lim. She also encouraged Adobe users in Singapore to follow Adobe on its Facebook page, www.facebook.com/AdobeSEA
A survey of more than 500 educators across Asia Pacific, undertaken by Adobe last year, showed that 55 percent of respondents believed that by 2017, there would be a significant increase in the role of digital tools in the classroom, including an increase of tablets, e-books, and digital content in education. In the same survey, 81 percent of respondents believed it was very important to incorporate creativity tools and techniques in the classroom to help prepare students for a 21st century workplace.
