Adobe and WebProfessionals.org present a Webinar Series for Educators

Dates: 
9 April 2013 (All day) - 14 May 2013 (All day)

Please join Adobe and WebProfessionals.org, the membership-supported organization for web designers, web developers and those that teach web topics, in a series of webinars designed to showcase how educators use web technologies, including HTML, CSS, and Javascript. These educators will show you how they incorporate these technologies, along with Adobe products such as Adobe Muse™, Adobe Edge Animate, Brackets, Adobe Flash® Creative Suite® 6 and Adobe Dreamweaver® CS6, into their classroom curriculum and coursework. They'll show you how these projects help their students achieve great success, both in the classroom and post-graduation.

"The catalyst for this Webinar series is the increasing need for relevant and practical training that educators can use to reap the benefits of the Adobe Creative Suite and related tools," said Professor Mark DuBois, WebProfessionals.org Director of Education and Adobe Education leader. "These webinars present an opportunity for both the WebProfessionals.org and the web professional educator and faculty communities to come together and learn from one another."

Adobe Brackets is a code editor for HTML, CSS and JavaScript that's built in HTML, CSS and JavaScript. What makes Brackets different from other web code editors? Tools shouldn't get in your way. Instead of cluttering up your coding environment with lots of panels and icons, the Quick Edit UI in Brackets puts context-specific code and tools inline. Brackets is in sync with your browser. With Live Development, Brackets works directly with your browser to push code edits instantly and jump back and forth between your real source code and the browser view. Do it yourself. Because Brackets is open source, and built with HTML, CSS and JavaScript, you can help build the best code editor for the web.
