This will be granted through May 31, 2020 at no additional cost.As more schools go to distance learning, we’ve curated resources to help educators and school leaders discover inspiring projects, best practices, and new ideas so they can continue to drive valuable learning in virtual environments.  Adobe’s distance learning resources.
