Adobe (Other Software)


Adobe offers a comprehensive line of software for enterprise and creative professional customers. Its products enable customers to create, manage, and deliver visually rich, compelling, and reliable content. With the launch at WVU of Adobe Creative Cloud, most Adobe products can now be obtained via download on WVU-owned computers with no fees being assessed by SLIC.

For the most popular Adobe software offered by WVU see below:

  • Adobe Captivate is a tool to develop interactive eLearning experiences for a multi-device world and enables users to see how their custom content will appear on various mobile and desktop screens. 
  • Adobe Presenter allows you to create interactive training videos, demonstrations and video presentations. 
  • Adobe ColdFusion is an application server that offers users a single platform to rapidly build and deploy web and mobile applications.
  • Adobe Sign is an Adobe Document Cloud solution which is a cloud-based, enterprise-class e-signature service that lets you replace paper and ink signature processes with fully automated electronic signature workflows. With it, you can easily send, sign, track, and manage signature processes using a browser.
    • Note: Adobe has removed the free functionality to request signatures from WVU's Creative Cloud tool set. This means you may still select the 'Fill and Sign' feature to sign a document, but you will get an error message if you click 'Get Others to Sign.' WVU employees who need to collect multiple signatures on a document or in a workflow can purchase Adobe Sign transactions by filling out the SLIC Software Request Form.
