Application licensing support
itopia CloudApps Classroom includes a students’ Office license as part of the student license, but application licensing is meant to be BYoL.
See the chart below for applications that require licenses, and the type of licenses that are supported.
|No License Required||Per User License||Network License||itopia provided|
Adobe Creative Cloud
|PLTW - Engineering||X||X|
*Unity provides free student and personal licenses for students in accredited educational institutions and individuals or small organizations with less than $100k of revenue or funds in the last 12 months.
Network licenses are licenses served to users and devices via a licensing server and hosted by the district.
A licensing server will be set up and managed by the district IT department. Applications allowing or requiring a license server—such as Autodesk or Solidworks—will need the district to configure access to the license server via a NAT. All requirements for these configurations can be found here.
Named user licenses
Named user licenses are provided by software vendors in order to allow access to their applications.
In this model, the district will assign licenses from a central management console to users, usually with their email address, and these users will be granted access to log into and use the application.
Some applications allow the use of both a named user license and a network license, such as Autodesk, others only allow strictly named user licenses such as Adobe Creative Cloud.
