IT Administrators

Department IT administrators are key to the deployment of the Adobe Campus Agreement apps to department owned computers. Through the use of Adobe portals, IT administrators create, download, and deploy those apps to their department computers. The deployment method is determined by the network environment.

Deployment Methods

There are two methods of deployment:

  1. Named licenses managed through the Admin Console.
      • Department managed computers (department IT manages computers)
      • Non-managed computers (end-users manage the computer and have rights to install software)
  2. Serial number licenses managed using the Adobe Licensing Web Site and the Creative Cloud Packager.
      • Classrooms
      • Computer labs
