Get up to date: the very latest from Adobe MAX 2020

The latest collaboration between Pugh and Adobe saw us team up with Adobe’s Education Business Architect Tom MacIldowie to bring you a one-stop-shop webinar on the very latest updates from this year’s Adobe MAX, including the announcement and demonstration of some very impressive new features. These include the use of AI and machine learning to transform photographs with just one touch. Rather than a manual 15-minute task, you can now change that dark, drizzly sky to glorious sunshine in a matter of seconds. Future developments include the exciting new ‘Invite to Edit’ feature, allowing users to collaborate on cloud content together in real-time to speed up workflows and gain true efficiency!

To get your student’s workplace-ready, it’s essential that you empower them with a digital skillset based on the very latest features and app versions. Tom gave us a powerful yet simple comparison of the evolution of light. Yes, in times of darkness, a candle will still provide you with some much-needed light. But does that mean you’re happy to stick with it forever? Does that mean you don’t need to upgrade to a lightbulb eventually? In a modern world that’s full of ultra-bright, ultra-efficient LED lightbulbs, sometimes a candle just won’t do!


Unlock creativity with Adobe’s blended learning

Adobe’s named user licenses play a key part in an effective blended learning solution. Unlike device licenses which are tied to specific computers, with named user licenses, it doesn’t matter if your users are in the classroom, at home or on the go; Adobe’s world-leading creativity apps and tools are always just one tap away. By enabling users to access these apps and tools with one simple log in and providing cloud storage for easy access to files, documents, graphics and all other content, Adobe are giving you the power to unlock creativity and productivity for all your users, across all devices, from anywhere and at any time.

At Pugh, we have placed great emphasis recently on our vision of long-term, sustainable blended learning and we are very happy that Adobe shares this vision with us. With us all working together, we really do believe that we can help make your journey to a more blended way of learning a smooth and successful one.
