Adobe Licensing Agreement

In a partnership with SJSU IT, Academic Affairs, and eCampus, San Jose State University significantly expanded the number of user licenses for Adobe’s Creative Cloud to include all actively enrolled SJSU students along with our faculty and staff. Creative Cloud has become a core component to many disciplines, making it an industry standard. San Jose State’s Creative Cloud membership provides access to all of Adobe’s enterprise-level tools, used in a variety of disciplines—from Humanities, Sciences, Engineering, Arts, and more.

With this license, all actively enrolled students can download any or all of the applications to their desktop or laptop computer or use Adobe’s mobile apps to create and inspire when on the go. Plus, files saved to a secure Creative Cloud account are accessible from any device with internet access, so your work goes with you.

Visit the eCampus Adobe Student Webpage and access the self-service application to request an Adobe enterprise account. Shortly after completing the request form, you will receive an email invitation with access instructions. Once you’ve registered, you’ll have access to Creative Cloud until you’re no longer registered for classes at SJSU in the current Fall or Spring semester. After you’re no longer an active student or university employee, you’ll be notified in the change in status and encouraged to save all your work locally. Any files remaining in Adobe’s Cloud are permanently deleted once your access is removed.

We’re excited about this partnership and look forward to seeing the amazing things Spartans can do with the unlimited creative possibilities in Adobe Creative Cloud Applications.

LinkedIn Learning

We’re excited to announce our partnership with LinkedIn to bring LinkedIn Learning to SJSU free of charge. An on-demand eLearning portal with over 12,000 available courses, LinkedIn Learning provides learning and development content for students, faculty, and staff. These courses range from just-in-time subject refreshers to entire sessions designed to help you gain or grow skills. San Jose State is one of the first institutions of higher education in the nation to work with LinkedIn to bring this enterprise-level development tool to a university campus.

Getting started is easy:

  • Go to one.SJSU.edu and log in
  • Type “LinkedIn Learning” in the search bar
  • Click on the LinkedIn Learning tile (and click on the heart icon to favorite it for later!)
  • Your LinkedIn Learning account will be created automatically. To personalize your course recommendations, you can either connect your LinkedIn profile or complete the brief set of questions that appear.

The IT Division sees LinkedIn Learning as a valuable tool for every member of the campus community. Students can access just-in-time courses that will refresh their academic knowledge or help them expand their skillsets in the job market. Staff now have on-demand professional development options, available when and where they need it. Faculty can integrate relevant LinkedIn Learning content into their instruction to supplement the classroom experience.

LinkedIn Learning develops personalized course recommendations for you based on insights from LinkedIn’s network and your desired job role, skill set, and experience level. These courses can supplement your academic knowledge with information from industry professionals, complementing a student’s journey from enrollment, through graduation, and into the workforce. The many Spartans already familiar with Lynda.com will be happy to know that they can find the Lynda library available at LinkedIn Learning.
