Can I buy an EDU licence for one class, or a smaller group?
AppShed EDU is sold as a site licence. This means that you are required to purchase the licence that matches the number of students registered at your school. This has been done for a variety of reasons:
We believe app creation contributes to digital literacy, and as such is a worthwhile skill for all students to gain.
App building is a means of communicating, not that different to blogging, making a website or writing an email. It can be utlised across all subjects and age groups.
We don't want app creation to be viewed as a niche skill for Computing and ICT. A site licence encourages school-wide use of the software.
We provide support to the whole school, regardless of the number of students using the software. For this reason a site licence is more appropriate.
We have tried to price the EDU licence very reasonably, considering the large amount of functionality and number of users it caters for.
(Please note that we validate student numbers according to the Government issued database of students.)
