In May 2016, 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 a specific employee for all products.
Benefits of the named license for Creative Cloud include the ability for the employee to use the software on 2 different computers, one of which may be a home computer. This benefit is not available for Captivate or Presenter. Departments may request licenses for use by their student employees engaged in departmental (non-academic) work by contacting the Help Desk at 731-881-7900.
Captivate and Presenter are packaged and serialized versions, not a named license. Automatic software updates do not work for these versions. UTK OIT will repackage these versions a minimum of twice per year to update the software.
