Adobe has announced new updates as well as a new licensing option for educational institutions that will help educators and students in Malaysia, said the design solutions provider.
"In a recent survey conducted across South East Asia, 58 percent of educators responded that they need more tools and training to help them promote creativity in the classroom," said Adobe South East Asia regional director, Vicky Skipp.
"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," she said, adding that Adobe has also announced a significant new licensing option for primary, secondary, and higher education institutions.
Skipp said Adobe's announcements for Malaysia's education sector include the availability of the full range of Adobe Creative Cloud including Creative Cloud Student Teacher Edition.
In addition, she said Creative Cloud (a subscription-based service with more than 30 tools and services) for teams and Creative Cloud for enterprise options were now available to educational institutions through a new plan called Education Enterprise Agreement (EEA). "The Education Enterprise Agreement (EEA) programme is an easy-to-manage, term-based licensing programme that gives educational institutions access to the new CC apps."
"This programme helps give our institutional customers the creative tools they need to be more productive, foster creativity in teaching and learning, and help their students develop essential digital communication skills," she said.
"Adobe has expanded the range of tools and services available for students and teachers," said Skipp. "Creative Cloud Student Teacher Edition is available at a special promotional pricing of RM60.99 [US$19.74] per month until 25 June 2013."
