Deploy Adobe Creative Cloud Plan 

SDSU Adobe Aztech Alliance project logo


The Adobe AzTech Alliance (A3) initiative promotes the use of Creative Cloud tools among SDSU students, faculty, and staff. Adobe Creative Cloud is a collection of 20+ desktop and mobile apps and services for photography, design, video, web, user experience, and more. Through the use of the Creative Cloud, A3 endeavors to develop a technical and pedagogical plan to teach creative digital communication and literacy skills to help our students gain an edge in the highly competitive modern workplace. 

As an Adobe Creative Campus, SDSU is part of a select group of colleges and universities that are driving the future of digital literacy within the global higher education community. In addition to making industry-leading Adobe Creative Cloud tools and services available to our students, SDSU collaborates with other Adobe Creative Campuses to share ideas and innovations that expand digital literacy and help ensure student success.

Goals / Deliverables

  • Increase campus-wide adoption of the Adobe Creative Cloud.
  • Develop a promotional plan to promote Adobe Creative Cloud mobile apps to student population.
  • Develop a promotional plan to raise awareness of digital literacy and creative software tools within the global higher education community through Adobe Creative Cloud.
  • Review current support models for students, faculty, and staff. Focus efforts on supporting an Adobe Creative Cloud module.

  • Train the SDSU community on how to use four basic/foundational Adobe Creative Cloud applications (Portfolio, Spark, InDesign, and Audition).
  • Establish plans and processes for integrating Adobe Creative Cloud into course assignments. Create pedagogical templates for use and/or customization by the global higher education community.
