Adobe have launched a new licensing program aimed at Primary schools and Secondary schools only (excludes Colleges of Further Education); Under the Adobe Education Enterprise Agreement (Adobe EEA) the goal is to bring widespread Adobe product deployment to educators via a site licence option.
Rather than licensing your school software per device, as has been the case in the past, there is now the option to licence based on your Staff (FTE) count, a great cost saving benefit to Schools with more computers than staff.
There is a minimum requirement of 20+ staff:
Adobe EEA FTE
And you can work out your staff numbers by using the following calculation:
Adobe EEA Calcuation
A further benefit is that schools can now access a new exciting range of products, specifically tailored for the educational environment:

So schools can access some revolutionary new products, such as Muse & Animate software, that were not available before.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to significantly expand your school’s creative abilities under the Adobe EEA program.

The evolution of Microsoft’s online identity management solution continues apace. The latest Sign-In page looks very simple but as with all great design it masks a complex reconfiguration of the underlying services.
As well as being used for web based login and mobile login, it is now also being used for SharePoint Online document checkout from Microsoft Word.

It’s a work in progress, and as a Microsoft partner, we still see evidence of Windows Live ID here and there. The question we get asked frequently is what is the difference between your Microsoft Account(s) and your Organisational Account when signing in for Microsoft Online Services.
The simplification of the terminology is welcomed, but has lead to some confusion. The confusion stems from from 1 simple thing, you can associate the same email address with both Accounts. For years we always advised our customers to use their business email address to access Microsoft partner sites and thats what we did ourselves, at the very least it prevented someone leaving the business and contining to access the partner benefits from a personal email address.
We experience this daily when accessing the new online services using our Organisationl Account and various partner services using our Microsoft Accounts. With the new login you have to look out for the text “Microsoft Account” or “Organisational Account” as shown here.

Not a big deal really, and it seems like Microsoft have done an amazing job getting their online identity management under Azure AD control. The only place I could find where the sign-in crossed the identity boundary was on Azure itself – which may lead to interesting scenarios for application developers building off these services.
