Adobe Acrobat for Education

Stay organized, get work done, and nail collaboration-whether you’re an administrator, educator, or student-with the complete PDF solution designed for digital learning.

Transition Made Easy

Educational institutions are looking to make digital instruction and collaboration accessible, productive, and secure while minimizing faculty workload and reducing costs.

Yet, the average school is still heavily reliant on paper-based processes for most tasks. While most educational institutions have already adopted some digital technologies, plenty remains to be done. That’s where Adobe Acrobat can help.

Going Digital Made Easy

Adobe Acrobat solutions support schools in going digital—whether it’s creating enrollment forms, giving feedback on assignments, or collaborating with peers on research. Acrobat is the complete PDF solution designed to adapt to remote, hybrid, and multi-device learning and work environments:

Administrators and staff

From registration to transcripts, human resources to vendor agreements, managing a school involves many documents. Adobe Acrobat simplifies the process for education staff members and administrators by keeping everything digital and everyone connected to their files.

Faculty and teachers

Every school depends on educators to deliver great learning experiences, but paper-based processes can slow them down. Adobe Acrobat makes grading and returning assignments, creating lesson plans, and doing research smooth and efficient with multi-device, digital workflows.


Being a student is hard work, especially while juggling virtual and in-person learning, extracurriculars, and applications. Adobe Acrobat provides best-in-class PDF experiences on a smartphone, tablet, or laptop so students can study, create, submit, and collaborate—in the classroom or on-the-go.

Use Cases

There are countless tasks and processes that go into providing a quality education to students. Adobe Acrobat streamlines formerly paper-based documents and forms, allowing more time for teaching, learning, and enrichment.
