Adobe announced that it will offer free access to its Creative Cloud service temporarily to students and teachers, after the closure of schools in several countries around the world as a measure to curb the spread of the new coronavirus.
There are already several technology companies that have joined this measure and have started offering their services for free, both to help companies facilitate teleworking for their employees and to make it easier for students not to be left without classes.
The Adobe company joined this initiative and will offer its Creative Cloud service free of charge until May to teachers and students, whose subscription normally costs approximately $ 61 per month and includes applications such as Photoshop, Premiere Pro and Illustrator.
To request free access to Creative Cloud, the university must send a form to Adobe, in which it must demonstrate that it is an institution and then the company will review the request.
Adobe will then send an email by March 20 to confirm that university students and faculty have access to its service.
Google, Microsoft, Cisco, Salesforce, Esri or Coursera are other companies that have started to offer their services temporarily without cost due to the new coronavirus.
