As you may know Indiana University recently signed a groundbreaking software deal with Adobe to provides no cost downloads of a wide array of fantastic (and usually expensive) Adobe software to all IU students, faculty, staff and departments. Now that the software is freely available to use, there is a need for training and tutorials on how to use all of this great software. The IT Training group at IU does a good job at offering various STEPS workshops on the more familiar CS 4 applications such as, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Flash, Acrobat, Illustrator, and InDesign. Hopefully they plan to expand their offerings because there is much more available in both the CS4 Design Suite, and the CS4 Development Suite. Not to mention all of the others available on IUWare.
This brings us to the point of this blog post. The staff in the IC find Adobe.tv to be an excellent resource for short Adobe CS4 how-to and training videos and we just wanted to share our good fortune!
Helpful training resources include:
- For example, Adobe.tv has an excellent series of videos on getting started with Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. Adobe.tv has many more published videos to help you learn and discover new features in the CS4 products on their Adobe TV site.
- You can sign up for a free 30 day trial membership at Lynda.com when you register your Adobe software; it includes tutorials on the CS4 interface. See http://kb.iu.edu/data/axyq.html for more information.
- IU students, faculty and staff can download free Adobe CS4 basic workshop materials to use and learn on their own.
- And of course you can stop by the IC or make an appointment if you have any questions or need any help.
