Adobe’s new Student Asset Migration self-service portal enables students leaving school to automatically transfer their assets from their school account to a new personal account. Now, both students and schools can truly realize the benefits of data portability.
Traditionally, transferring assets was a manual and tedious process. Students had to painstakingly browse through their school account and make local backups of their personal assets before the school deleted their account. However, using this new self-service portal, students can easily transfer their assets through an automated process.
The school’s system administrator controls access to the portal by modifying an asset migration setting that allows organization users to transfer assets. The setting is enabled by default. Therefore, technically, any member of the school organization that has the URL of the self-service portal can transfer assets.
It is the system administrator’s job to ensure that the URL is shared with the appropriate set of school-leaving users who are permitted to transfer their assets. To learn more, see Automatic student asset migration for education.
The migration process is a simple, self-service process. Once the student logs in to the portal using their Enterprise ID/Federate ID assigned by the school, they are required to provide consent to the transfer by agreeing to the terms and conditions of the portal. Thereafter, the students are asked to sign up for a new personal account where their assets are transferred. Once their account is verified, the students are guided through a series of wizard-based steps to transfer their assets. To learn more, see Migrate your student assets.
