The Department of Education (DepEd) has distributed Adobe Creative Cloud licenses to public schools across the country.
By giving yearly access to access to Adobe CC, the education department aims to improve the digital literacy both of the students and the teachers.
The Adobe Creative Cloud offers a suite of desktop and mobile applications that centers for creativity like photography, video editing, design, layout, and more. Popular software includes Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere Pro, and more.
Students and faculty can access this software via an Adobe Deferated ID that’s been linked to the respective email addresses of each school. The ID has been made available since January 15.

DepEd said that the project was made possible by its Office of the Undersecretary for Administration and Information and Communications Technology Service, which partnered with Adobe themselves to procure around 108,000 licenses. The agencies also teamed up with Creative Nation Academy, which will share their expertise on using the said software.
In a statement, Education Undersecretary Alain Del Pascua said that it is a must to equip schools with such tools so they can have greater opportunities in landing a job in this creative development era we’re in.
ICTS-Educational Technology Head Mark Sy expressed the importance of opening gateways to educators as they are molding learners. The move will also help generate competitive graduates that will help lift the country.
