Adobe Spark for education, which includes premium features regularly valued at $120.00/year, is now available to faculty, staff, and students free of charge. Adobe Spark is an integrated suite of storytelling applications, which allow both web and mobile users to create and share visual content – like posts for social media, graphics, web stories, and animated videos.

 

There are 2 methods for making Adobe Spark for education available at your school:

#1- Managed Deployment

Your school’s IT Administrator can deploy Spark through its Adobe Admin Console. The school owns the named user licenses give to students (For Adobe Spark or All Apps). These licenses must be deployed using Enterprise or Federated IDs. As part of the setup, you have to prove that you own the domain, by updating the DNS records. Click here for a Deployment Guide.

#2- Self Service

If you’re not ready for a managed deployment, your students, faculty and staff may sign up using a personal account. It is totally free and has no trial limit.

Details on how educators can get Spark for Education with premium features for free for their school, along with Spark training and professional development complete with a guide to using Spark in the classroom can be found on the Spark for Education website. Additionally, Adobe offers a free platform, the Education Exchange, where educators can access free courses taught by their peers and share teaching materials and curricula.

Whether you need to purchase licenses for a small group or department, a classroom or lab, or your entire institution, ScholarBuys can help you find an Adobe licensing option to best meet your requirements. Contact your Academic Technology Expert to review the option that is the best fit for you.
