Corel Corp. announced its commitment to academia at this week’s National Educational Computing Conference (NECC) in San Antonio, TX, outlining plans for new training curriculum and a new approach to the academic community.
For the first time ever, procreate, Corel’s line of products for creative professionals, are being showcased at the educational conference. Designed as a brand of tools that complement and enhance Adobe Photoshop-based workflows, tools like Painter 7, KPT effects and KnockOut 2 are being demonstrated to show how procreate professional graphics tools extend and enhance creative curriculum.
Corel’s academic software is also being highlighted at the Corel booth, including Corel Graphis Suite 10 for Macintosh, Corel R.A.V.E., and Bryce 5. At their NECC booth, Corel is offering visitors the opportunity to use procreate creative software to sketch a live model and learn from professional instructors from the Art Institutes at the popular procreate Digital Art Class.
Corel has also announced that Element K, a provider of training solutions for information technology, has been chosen to deliver training resources and curriculum for the company’s line of graphics and business productivity software. These resources will be available to users on both Mac and Windows platforms.
As part of this relationship, Element K will provide Corel with online and instructor-led learning resources. Element K-developed curriculum is due later this summer.
