The Adobe Creative Cloud was a grant proposal submited as a Technology Initiative Project (TIP) to the Campus Technology Advisory Board (CTAB)

This subscription covers the installation of the Adobe Master Collection Suite on SUNY Oswego-owned Mac and PC computers and allows a home use option to faculty and staff who can purchase it at a discounted rate for use on their personal computers.

Having the opportunity to obtain Adobe Cloud for the Spring semester is a great opportunity for Oswego students to be taught with state of the art industry software and ensure they are prepared for the workforce. Our students will be among the few in the SUNY system to have access to this technology, only a few other schools have it. Currently, CTS staff are working on several projects to ensure a smooth roll-out of Adobe Creative Cloud. They include:

  • Building installer packages for the various titles that will make the software available to faculty and staff.
  • Creating a plan to incorporate the software into computer labs and classrooms being mindful of system and hardware requirements of the various Adobe titles.
  • Building an Adobe software install request that will be available through the Help Desk Self Service system for requesting an install.

CTS is working towards rolling out the installer packages and service request for mid-February. Another announcement will be sent when the software is available.
