Adobe Enables Distance Learning Globally for Schools Impacted by COVID-19

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

Therefore, Adobe has begun to offer free 90-day access to Adobe Connect, the 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.

Schools and districts who aren’t customers can now use Adobe Connect rooms with up-to 25 participants for free for up to 90 days if they sign-up for a trial license between now and 1st July. Adobe has taken care to evaluate and ensure the scalability of infrastructure for this greater support for streamlined, reliable access to the service throughout this period.

In addition, Adobe is making temporary at-home access to Creative Cloud as a whole. This offer is available until May 31, 2020, for schools and colleges who currently have only lab access for students, at no additional cost.

If you are the IT admin at a school that is preparing or already experiencing a closure, complete the form below to grant your students or teachers access at home.

This form allows you to request temporary access to CC desktop apps for students and teachers. Please note that only ONE administrator needs to request access for each Admin Console. Adobe will review your request and send you an email by March 20, 2020 or earlier, once your students and teachers have access.

To be eligible for this access, your school or college must be a current customer with an active Device, Shared Device License, or Serial Number plan. This at-home access is temporary and will apply to Adobe ID, Federated ID or Enterprise ID users in your Adobe Admin Console. The temporary licenses may be provided and removed at Adobe’s sole discretion.
