Adobe Creative Cloud Webinar Recording Now Available

Wednesday, November 25, 2015 - 12:52


On November 17, Computing Services and Systems Development held the third in a series of educational webinars for University of Pittsburgh students, faculty, and staff. Representatives from Adobe provided a live training session on digital publishing techniques with Adobe Creative Cloud. You can view a recording of the webinar on Adobe’s Web site.

The webinar session explained how to: 

  • Combine and repurpose digital content—Work with native files, images, or PDF files and edit content on the fly
  • Edit scanned images—Easily convert any paper document to an editable digital document
  • Protect information—Prevent others from copying or editing sensitive content by using PDFs
  • Use task-based actions—easily create, standardize and automate complex processes

Our next webinar on December 9 will explore enriching course content with Adobe Creative Cloud. You can register online.
