SSD19: Experiences and Feedback on Integrating Adobe Creative Suite into our Courses
|ACC is on the cutting edge as the first community college in the nation to be designated as an Adobe Creative Campus. While the designation is new for ACC, other universities around the country have been successful in integrating Adobe products into their courses, regardless of the discipline. This session will showcase some of the ways Adobe can be integrated into courses at ACC, as well as the feedback received from instructors and students on their experiences.
