According to, “Digital literacy skills are inevitable and new forms of accessible education and training are necessary… These skills are increasingly important in today’s labor market and are the path forward.” With the new availability of Adobe Creative Cloud, the world’s best apps and services for video, design, photography, and web, faculty, staff, and students can develop skills that will give them an edge in the classroom and in their careers.

This upgraded service has been available for faculty and staff for several months, but through coordinated efforts during the wintermester, the Office of Information Technology upgraded OIT-supported labs to enable students access to the entire collection of creative desktop tools, like Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Adobe Premiere, and other amazing services.

Adobe has been making some exciting announcements as they updated their licensing structure to allow users the full functionality of their software and services while making the entire suite available online. Faculty and staff can use their UTA credentials to access all the available Adobe applications and services purchased for The University of Texas at Arlington under the direction of the Office of Information Technology. Existing Adobe Creative Cloud software install on UTA-owned device with the old licensing requirements will need to be upgraded by February 29 to continue to use this software. Other services, such as Acrobat Pro, will not be affected by this new Adobe licensing structure.

Take advantage of this service today and master the industry-leading digital tools that companies use every day by visiting our OIT-supported labs or install the latest version of Adobe Creative Cloud to your UTA-owned device. For more information, please visit the Adobe Creative Cloud product page and resource guide or product page.
