Sounds good especially for those students doing senior computing that can't afford to buy the same versions we are using at school!

They've been doing it for a while; this thread is the 5th on Edugeek in the past year to refer to it.

I looked at doing this but the process for setting us up as an IDP didn't seem very straightforward. How easy is it in real terms?

Hmm... not much point for Primaries sadly but useful to know about though.

Will have more teaching responsibilities (again) as of April so I've signed up, see if I can get the co-ordinator on board for some fun :-)

This sounds rather like the Macromedia license for the educational version of Flash - full version, but you weren't allowed to sell anything you made. They're only development tools, anyway - if you wanted a C compiler couldn't you just go and download one?

I signed up to this scheme last year, its been around for a while, initially offering XNA, Server 2003 Standard, C# and Visual Studio.
I was interested in using Microsoft's XNA game studio for a framework build for a project, and couldn't justify the cost, till I found the dreamspark resource.
Alot of students have found Expression Studio a valuable resource, and the other applications a valuable resource as well.
