The applications have been re-written to improve performance and productivity, making it easier for novices and experts to get the job done. This session will provide an overview and demonstration of new features that enable students and faculty to create and repurpose content for any device, from desktops to tablets of all kinds. In addition to the core products like Photoshop, Illustrator and Acrobat, you'll see how Dreamweaver and InDesign are revolutionizing the web, HTML5, and democratizing digital publishing.

I didn't know Acrobat X could do that??
Few people - including some "experts" - know the true power of Adobe Acrobat Professional. An Adobe PDF is much more than a document destined for the print queue. When it comes to creating and enabling a PDF with underlying "intelligence", Acrobat stands alone in improving instructional and administrative efficiency across campus. From creating research proposals and assembling instructional materials, to improving processes involving collaboration and rich media integration, Acrobat is THE most versatile tool. Whether you are a student, faculty member, researcher, or administrative professional this session will demonstrate how Acrobat can transform and repurpose existing materials for a more efficient environment for a number of common and complex tasks . See how everyone can maximize resources and save time by applying Acrobat's new innovative tools, collaborative workflows, and versatile re-purposing features.
