    NEVERMIND

    QUOTE: "To clarify; free software licenses made available to eligible community members via the Education Community cannot be installed or used on institutional computers located in classrooms and laboratories, and instead may only be installed and used on the personal computer of the community member.

    The afore mentioned Education Community License Update has also been revised to include this language." ENDQUOTE

    I guess if you go to some posh edu establishment where you're expected to have an uberlaptop then you can use the software in class. (of course they and or pupil could probably afford it anyway!?)

    Fart Pants now I've got to let people down.

    After hearing several conflicting reports of the changes to the Autodesk site licensing, it does appear that Autodesk will supply up to 125 seats of their software for free.
    Welcome to Autodesk Academic Resource Center, where we offer free access to the latest Autodesk design software to education institutions
    This is not the student software offer that caused all the confusion.

    The main page is here
    Autodesk Academic Resource Center

    To apply you click here

    I've been contacted by Matt Bell who is leading on it for Autodesk UK. They haven't officially launched the offer yet, I guess they will publicize it more when they do, although they are leaving it late for roll outs over this summer. However resellers shouldn't have been selling UK schools education licenses since July 2012, when the offer actually started (if you were in the know)

    Autodesk provides Secondary education institutions, teachers and students with Free access to over thirty 2D and 3D design & visualization software offerings and also makes available free training, teaching and learning resources for personal use.

    To apply to download Free* software for your institution please visit the Autodesk Academic Resource Center at Autodesk Academic Resource Center. I have attached step by step instructions to this email.

    Students and teachers wishing to download free licenses of the software for use at home can access the software from Autodesk Education Community

    Autodesk has partnered with the UK Design & Technology Association to support science, technology, engineering, art and maths (STEAM) education for Secondary schools, through the provision of free software and projects. To access UK specific resources and learning content please visit Secondary Education UK
    We have additional STEAM curriculum resources available at www.autodesk.com/digitalsteam
