Academic Technology Services and ITS recently hosted UW-L’s Adobe Day on May 22nd and HOT: Hands On Technology on May 23rd. Over 50 UW-L faculty and staff attended sessions and workshops during the two days.
Adobe Day featured two representatives from Adobe Systems, Inc., Jill Gray and Ryan Dietz, who gave presentations and answered questions about Adobe Acrobat Pro, Adobe Creative Suite/Creative Cloud and Adobe Digital Publishing Suite. In June, Adobe will be moving to a cloud-based, software subscription model called Creative Cloud for its Creative Suite software. This will be a radical change from the past when Creative Suite software was delivered on CD or DVD with individual licenses.
This is the second year that Academic Technology Services offered HOT: Hands On Technology. HOT included interactive workshops using Adobe Acrobat Pro, Turnitin, digital storytelling, tools to create screen captures, screen recordings and podcasts and Google Drive. The objective of HOT is to give an overview of several learning technologies and then allow attendees to work with them "hands on" in a computer classroom environment.
Please contact email@example.com with any questions about Adobe Day or HOT.
