New Way to Pay for School Software

Ccm-explore-creative-cloud-poster-708x510Adobe has led the world in pushing imaging to the cloud and the company takes the big step of phasing out physical disc copies of its Creative Suite software at retail. You’ll still be able to get the discs but through Adobe’s support group, but from now on Adobe will update the apps as they are changed via the company’s Creative Cloud online service. Meanwhile, it could end up being cheaper to get the software into the hands of students because the license agreement will now be based on the number of teachers, not computers in the institution. A school with 50 staff members would pay roughly $5,000 for every student and teacher to use the base Design and Web product for a year.
