Hi there, just wanted to chime in with my 2pence
Im more of an educatee than an educator (right now) but C2 is becoming more widely used on my course, a BA (Hons) Design for Games. The course leaders and lecturers are increasingly encouraging its use and are even now taking tutorials and using the software themselves to help those who do wish to use C2, which i think is great!
C2 is available on the computers where i study but as far as im aware its just the free license, not to depreciate its value, but its available on every PC in the Design for Games classrooms. From a students perspective, i would think some kind of Education License would be extremely beneficial but im afraid i can only speak my opinion of my institutes perspective.
Even as Mr E Bear suggested, i think promotion material around colleges and universities is a very good idea that would benefit the developers and those wanting to get into the game industry (such as myself). I feel C2 is a very good to bridge the gap between proffesional game studios and outright beginners
