A lot like Microsoft's DreamSpark program that many of you will be familiar with (but significantly easier to set up) the Autodesk Student Community allows you to set up your students with access to a lot of software for home use:
- AutoCAD Architecture
- AutoCAD Civil 3D
- AutoCAD Electrical
- AutoCAD Map 3D
- AutoCAD Mechanical
- AutoCAD MEP
- AutoCAD Raster Design
- Autodesk AliasStudio
- Autodesk Ecotect
- Autodesk Impression
- Autodesk Inventor
- Autodesk MotionBuilder
- Autodesk Navisworks Manage
- Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis Professional
- Autodesk Showcase Professional
- Autodesk SketchBook Pro
- Autodesk VIZ
- Green Building Studio
- Revit Architecture
- Revit MEP
- Revit Structure
The big-ticket omissions are Maya, 3ds Max, and MudBox, but the rest will be very useful if you're teaching any of them. The licences last for a 13 months, and the software adds a banner when you print saying they are non-commercial licences. I believe you can get another serial at the end of the 13 months but it's not made explicit on the site (they do refer to "annual licences").
To get started, visit the Faculty Registration Instructions page and set up yourself as a faculty member. Once this is set up, students can either register with their school email addresses (if they have one) or you can generate a link to distribute to them which associates them with your school.

You don't need to use your school email (i'm using a hotmail address) but that might be due to me being from australia.
You can reissue the products code (i have in the past) and you issue codes for different versions.
Although i do recommend that someone spends time downloading a copy of the full installers that you can and then putting them somewhere locally for the students/staff so they can copy onto removable storage/burn to dvds ect because i know the architecture installer is like 4gb and the installer that the kids can download just downloads live from the server.
