Everyone Can Create Powerful,Visual Stories with Adobe Spark



In previous posts, I have highlighted the Adobe Post mobile app and the beta version of Adobe Post Web. Now, Adobe has announced the availability of Adobe Spark. Adobe Spark is described as "the only integrated web and mobile solution for creating and sharing impactful visual stories. Free and designed for everyday communications, Adobe Spark empowers anyone – including small businesses, social marketers and students – to create stunning visual content that engages audiences across multiple channels and looks great on any device."

    

Adobe Spark consists of:

  • Adobe Spark web app: a browser-based web experience for creating social posts and graphics, web stories and animated videos.
  • Spark Post: an iOS mobile app that enables anyone to create stunning social posts and graphics in seconds. (previously Adobe Post)
  • Spark Page: an iOS mobile app that helps users create beautiful web stories. (previously Adobe Slate)
  • Spark Video: an iOS mobile app that enables users to create compelling animated videos in minutes. (previously Adobe Voice)  
Spark's web and mobile apps are perfect tools for students and teachers to create and share powerful, visual content. Adobe created an Adobe Spark Guide for Schools and Educators, an in-depth document on how to use Adobe Spark in the classroom. 


Make sure you also check out these great resources to learn more about how Adobe Spark can be used in education:
