For the first time in the Philippines, Adobe Systems Inc. announced the availability of significantly discounted versions of its industry-leading software for students and teachers. How much of a discount are we talking about? How about up to 80% off the full retail price?
Products in this program include Adobe® Creative Suite® 5.5 Design Premium, Creative Suite5.5 Design Standard, Creative Suite 5.5 Web Premium and Adobe Acrobat® X Pro. The products offered under the Student and Teacher Software program are identical to the commercial edition and include a number of Adobe suites and individual products, encompassing the best-selling design and development software that applies to almost all creative processes.
So again, how cheap will these products be for qualified teachers and students? Well for example, the Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Design Standard which retails for Php69,000 is going to be just Php3,599 under this program. Talk about savings!
“œThe launch of Adobe Student and Teacher Software program in the Philippines is an important step for Adobe’s digital education strategy,” said Vicky Skipp, Regional Director, Southeast Asia, Adobe. “œOur experience is that when students have access to digital media software at very affordable prices, there is a rapid increase in their digital skills and confidence. Students display their talents, express their creativity and learn to collaborate more effectively. Adobe software offers an excellent way for students and teachers to produce web pages, videos and mobile content, applications and epublishing content – and helps them understand how to merge the creative process into their daily assignments and work tasks.”
“œTeachers and students in the Philippines need the right tools to help them acquire the latest digital media skills needed for developing content for the digital industry. By making our leading software available to students and teachers at highly discounted prices, Adobe is proud to support Philippines’s initiative to develop ICT-based education to drive the next generation’s workforce,” Ms. Skipp further added.
