Adobe is making it easier for those who have to work and learn from home.
The technology company is providing tools for video-conferencing, virtual meetings and other remote business services.
Commenting on the announcement Adobe Australia and New Zealand managing director Suzanne Steele said:
“COVID-19 is changing everything about life and work as we know it. At Adobe we’re focused on how to best protect and support our families, employees, customers and communities in the face of this unfolding crisis. We also recognise the critical role our technology plays in creative pursuits and business success. As such, coming together as a tech sector to help Australian businesses navigate these unprecedented challenges is essential.
“We are offering, via the AIIA Hub and direct from Adobe, free 90-day access to Adobe Connect, our web and video-conferencing solution. As more Australians transition to remote work Adobe Connect will give people the ability to join meetings and trainings from their homes.
“We are also arming teachers and staff with new online resource for educators through our free Adobe Education Exchange portal. On this portal we have curated a vast amount of distance learning resources to help educators, school leaders – and now, in many cases, parents – discover inspiring projects, best practices, and new ideas so they can continue to drive valuable learning in virtual environments.
“And, given that many Australian schools, colleges and universities are facing challenges with international student attendance, physical campus closures and moving to online learning, Adobe is giving students free personal in-home access to Adobe Creative Cloud applications in place of their schools’ in-classroom license.”
