However experience shows a 14 day free trial in an education setting just doesn’t work, and the pricing structure suggested does not work for students.

For education a trial needs to work over a minimum of a semester to be of any use, no student can devote enough time in 14 days (alongside their other assessment work) to create a useful artifact. There is nothing like having students learn then promote a product when they go into the workforce, and it doesn’t hurt to have a copy available for the lecturer either.

In the past some software companies have discretely watermarked with “Educational Copy”. In some cases “Educational Copy” was so visible as to make the software unusable – so we didn’t!! )
