Webster University and software company Adobe have announced an agreement that will make a suite of products available at all Webster campuses, according to an August 18 Webster University news release.
By 2020, Webster staff, faculty and students will have access to Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe Marketing Cloud, and Adobe Sign, a digital signature program.
The university has already begun the process of implementing Creative Cloud software, which will be rolled out over the next three years.
“By 2019, Webster students, faculty and staff at all University locations will have full access to the Adobe Creative Cloud library, cloud storage and services—enabling students to deliver digitally engaging projects, build their own apps or websites, deliver videos… and create e-portfolios to highlight their work,” the university news release said.
The program is part of an effort to tailor curriculum toward increasing technological proficiency requirements in the job market, as well as cut down on paper usage. Adobe will provide technical support and training resources to the Webster community as products are introduced.
“The agreement meets several goals and objectives stated in University’s strategic plan ‘Global Impact for the Next Century,’” Webster Vice President and Chief Information Officer Kenneth Freeman said. “We are excited to see these state-of-the-art tools implemented on our campus and look forward to seeing how this technology will supplement the innovative Webster community.”
