Adobe CC 2020 Upgrade FAQs

How often will I have to login to access Adobe applications?

On College-managed computers, faculty and staff will find that they will be required to authenticate with their Lafayette credentials very infrequently on their office and teaching podium computers.  Students will likely be required to authenticate on a more consistent basis particularly when using random campus lab computers however, if a student has an existing single-sign-on session established for other College services, (e.g. Moodle, Lafayette email, etc…) authentication will be required less frequently.

Is there training on Adobe CC 2020 available?

Adobe’s website has good tutorials and information on using Adobe Cloud products.
