Support Deploying Adobe CC
As part of your LGfL subscription you can get free Adobe Creative Cloud licences as well as an unlimited number of Adobe Spark for Education licenses at no additional cost.
LGfL will work with you to complete the necessary paperwork and set you up with Adobe Admin Console.
Named User Licenses
Offered licenses are on a “Named User License” basis. This means that students, teachers and staff who want to use the software require an individual email address, and access to emails, as they will have to set their own password.
Named User Licenses provide users with the full functionality of the software and services and allows users to use the software anytime, anywhere and on any device.
A school can also purchase additional Named User Licenses through LGfL without a minimum purchase quantity at the price of £4.89 (per user per year).
Shared Device Licenses are also available for LGfL member schools without a minimum purchase quantify at the price of £19.50 (per device per year). Shared Device Licensing is a licensing model to deploy and manage Adobe applications in computer labs. Shared Device Licenses won’t allow teachers and students to use Creative Cloud outside the computer lab.
LGfL schools get free Adobe training, support and opportunities to participate in competitions, events and projects as part of the request process.
Claiming Your Licenses
What happens after the request?
Request to submit information
Your LGfL customer service manager sends you a form to fill in with necessary details so that the right license entitlement can be allocated.
LGfL will also complete the necessary paperwork with you.
Creation of the Admin Console
Adobe creates you your own Admin Console that is a one-stop shop for administrators to manage their institution’s Adobe software and users. It is used to deploy the software, to administer and manage user accounts and request Adobe support.
After you have received your login and access to your Admin Console, LGfL will send you information about the console and typical tasks for IT Admin, including some short videos to get you started. You have a wealth of resources and support available as well as 24/7/365 Enterprise Support through your console.
