If approved, students and teachers will have access to Adobe's Creative Cloud apps. Some institutions have shut down their buildings and required students and teachers to work from home. Many schools have labs with computers with Adobe's Creative Cloud apps installed. Without access to these computers, students would be left to purchase subscriptions themselves or to not be able to do their work from home. Home access will provide an alternative to these computers and allow students and educators to work from home.
