Having to study at home because of the virus? Adobe has your back. The company is offering free access to Adobe Creative Cloud for students and teachers, as coronavirus has caused so many educational institutions to close up for the timebeing.
To get access, you’ll have to get the IT department of your institution to fill in the form linked below:
The whole package normally costs £49.94 per month for normal subscriptions, or £16.24 per month for students, so Adobe is offering a pretty hefty discount to help out educators and students.
Once a request has been sent by your IT department and then processed by Adobe, you’ll be granted access by your educational institution.
This move from Adobe follows similar measures from Google and Microsoft, who made the paid elements of their video conferencing tools free to use. Both companies are seemingly trying to reduce the difficulties for people who are newly forced to work at home due to the coronavirus outbreak.
