Who can order an educational subscription?
Anyone who is affiliated with a public and non commercial educational institute may order a site wide license and take home licenses. This includes schools themselves, buyers for schools, teachers and students.
If you run an educational program that is not state recognised (for example private classes) you must email email@example.com with a description of your intended use. We will then consider granting you permission to use our educational subscriptions. Please include:
- The name of your institute
- Website for your institute
- Fee schedule for students
I represent a school district, how many licenses do I need?
Every institute in the district that wants to use Construct 2 will need their own subscription. To order for multiple institutes please register a new account for each institute.
Thinking of buying an educational subscription?
How easy is it to install on multiple computers?
Construct 2 can be installed portably! See this guide for instructions. In short, you should be able to install it on one computer and simply copy and paste it onto the other computers.
What do I get exactly?
A site license
A Construct 2 license that unlocks all features of Construct 2. You may install this license on as many computers on-site as you want, with no restrictions on the number of users. This license is strictly for on-site use only, if you want your students to be able to use the full version of Construct 2 at home you will need to order "Take Home" licenses.
Take home licenses
For excellent value for money you can order take home licenses. These allow students to use the full featured version of Construct 2 at home.
Do I get support?
If there are bugs with Construct 2, we're always happy to take a look if you report it following our procedures. We're also happy to help if you're having trouble installing Construct 2 or getting it going.
We're unable to answer questions on useage of the product itself, however our forums are an excellent place to get help from other educators and Construct 2 users!
What resources do you have to help me?
Each subscription comes with over 100mb of royalty free assets you can use. We also have a wealth of free information and guides on this website:
Can I pay via bank transfer/PO?
Yes, however the minimum order is 3 years. If you'd like to pay for at least 3 years, please email [email protected] with the name of your institute, if you'd like to be charged in GBP, EUR or USD and the number of years you'd like to order.
Do you have free trials?
We do not offer free trials of education subscriptions. If you would like to try Construct 2 first download the Free Edition!
I want to buy it but can't because...
If you want to buy it but can't, please email us and let us know!
Take home licenses
How many take home licenses do I need?
One take home license permits one student to use that license for 12 months.
Take home licenses can be reissued a maximum of once every 12 months. This means that if you have a 20 seat course that takes 3 batches of students each year, you will need 60 take home licenses, you cannot order 20 and reissue them to each new batch of students.
If you cancel your subscription, take home licences are also all cancelled.
Still confused? We're always happy to clarify! Simply drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Can I issue take home licenses to teachers?
Yes, so long as the take home license is being used solely for education purposes at the registered institute.
How often can I reissue take home licenses?
A take-home license can be reissued up to once per 12 months. This will cancel all current take home licenses, and allow you to generate a new batch.
How do I add take home licenses on to my current subscription?
Currently this is not possible. You'll need to cancel your active subscription, and then subscribe again with your new requirements. Please contact us if you need assistance doing this.
