In May, UT signed a new contract with Adobe for Creative Cloud, Captivate, and Presenter. The new contract licensing for Creative Cloud is based on specific, named users, and requires UT to assign licenses to specific employees for all products.

Benefits of the named license for Creative Cloud include the ability for the employee to use the software on two computers, one of which may be a home computer. This benefit is not available for Captivate or Presenter. Departments may also purchase licenses for use by their student employees engaged in departmental (non-academic) work.

Departments who support a student computer lab or a staff training lab may get a packaged version of Creative Cloud for the cost of one license per machine. Note that dual boot machines will require a license for both operating systems.

UT departments may purchase licenses for Creative Cloud, Captivate, and Presenter through VolTech. If you purchased Adobe Acrobat DC, Creative Cloud DC, Captivate, or Presenter under the former contract and still have need of this software, please contact VolTech to purchase a new license. Installations made under the former contract need to be removed from all university computers.

Additional information, including pricing and download/installation instructions, is available online. If you are with another campus or unit, such as UT System Administration, Institute of Agriculture, Institute for Public Service, Health Science Center, Chattanooga, or Martin, please check with your respective chief information officer for additional information regarding the distribution of Adobe products.
