Adobe Learning Hub

Adobe has assembled resources and learning opportunities to help educators engage remote students through online learning. Check it out at https://edex.adobe.com/distance-learning

Some of their resources include:

K-12 projects — https://edex.adobe.com/distance-learning/k-12-projects

Social Justice projects — https://edex.adobe.com/social-justice

resources for young learners — https://edex.adobe.com/young-learners

resources for welbeing — https://edex.adobe.com/distance-learning/wellbeing-for-educators

One of the main tools they reference is Adobe Spark, its suite of tools for helping users create visual content. Spark enables non-graphics experts to design professional-looking graphics, mix text and images and create animated videos simply and quickly. As a reminder, all P-CCS staff and secondary students have access to Adobe Spark for Education, a premium, yet free, version of Spark which is made available to schools and colleges.

Spark supports live collaboration through the web. It comes in multiple languages, including French, Italian, German, Spanish and Portuguese.  Adobe has added or will soon be adding project commenting; real-time, synchronous co-editing; mobile project sharing; and “support for multiple brands” for users who participate in more than one team.

Note, there is a Canvas integration.  To create Spark assignments in Canvas, check out https://helpx.adobe.com/enterprise/using/canvas-integration.html#educators // students to complete a Spark assignment in Canvas would want to check out https://helpx.adobe.com/enterprise/using/canvas-integration.html#students.
