Portfolio-Building Projects

Give your students practical and creative hands-on experience with our fresh and innovative projects. Each gradable project comes with step-by-step instructions and downloadable project files that reinforce software skills and techniques. Students can build their portfolios with finished files and you can utilize projects in class to demonstrate key techniques.

Instructional Video Tutorials

Students learn better when software tools are demonstrated in action. MyGraphicsLab videos are part of the critically acclaimed Learn by Video training series that offers exceptional quality high-definition video tutorials to teach the most essential creative technologies. All videos are closed-captioned and downloadable project files are included so the students can follow along with what is being presented in each video.

Introductory Presentations

Give students a jumpstart to each topic with our slide-style introductory presentations. Use them in class to introduce and expand upon your own lectures, and students can refer to them later to reinforce learning at their own pace.

eText to Reinforce Learning

Each MyGraphicsLab course pairs content with our best-selling Classroom in a Book hands-on software training series developed by Adobe-approved training experts. Our eText is fully integrated into the course content with assigned readings and hands-on exercises for students to apply the knowledge they’ve gained.

Flexible Assessments

Easily track student progress with pre-built multiple-choice assessments that you can schedule and configure to suit the needs of your course content. Use the Autograding and Performance Reporting features to instantly see where students may need extra attention.

Additional Features

Easily scalable and shareable content

MyGraphicsLab enables you to manage multiple class sections, and lets other instructors copy your settings so a standardized syllabus can be maintained across your department. Should you want to use the same MyGraphicsLab course next semester, with the same customized settings, you can copy your existing course exactly—and even share it with other faculty members. MyGraphicsLab also lets you easily add, remove, or modify existing instructional material so you can teach exactly as you’d like.

Performance tracking

MyGraphicsLab allows you to track student activity and performance using detailed reporting capabilities. Use the Gradebook to manage grades per assignment and see individual students’ cumulative grade to date. Use Performance Reporting to view at a glance individual student and overall class performance on all gradable assignments. See your top performers and those with the lowest scores.

Increased student interaction

Encourage student participation and interaction in your course with numerous MyGraphicsLab social networking features. Course Home serves as an activity hub to help your students track progress and due dates, and keep in touch with you and their classmates. Turn MyGraphicsLab into a virtual classroom by allowing students to comment on and discuss each other’s assignments and works in progress. Our Shared Resources page further enhances student learning by connecting them to the wider professional graphics community.

ACA exam preparation

Help students land their first job by using MyGraphicsLab to prepare them to take the Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) exam. MyGraphicsLab content is specifically structured to the ACA exam objectives and helps students concretely demonstrate their knowledge of entry-level software skills and project management responsibilities.
