    This isn't a "Chromebook App" though.

    It's a "Chrome App" since it also works on the Windows, OS X and Linux versions of Chrome and Chromium (and Chromeboxes too).

    To clarify: This is free when deployed through the Chrome Store Web Apps portal.

    The point I was trying to make was that this app will work on more than just Chromebooks. The title of your thread implies otherwise.

    Does this mean that you can get the educational version of the app for free if your school has Google Apps for Edu?

    According to the pricing page on the BioDigital website, the Standard edition of the app is free, but the Groups edition isn't?

    What I had intended to indicate in my original post is that BioDigital Human deployed via the Google Apps portal had caught my attention. As we will shortly be trialing a set of Chromebooks shortly I thought this was of interest and might be of interest to others who might also be trialing Chromebooks.

    The original post carried no more meaning than this.

    My apologies if this was unclear.

    No problem. It does look like a good app though.

    It reminds me of the Dorling Kindersley Human Body CD-ROMs that a lot of schools had back in the late 90's/early 00's.
