Corel Offers Free Software for Teachers and Faculty Members
Corel has launched its new
Teacher-Try-It Program at
the ISTE 2014 conference in
With the Teacher-Try-It Program, qualifying teachers and faculty members in
the United States and Canada can download one Corel software package for free.
The program is available for a limited time and includes a full license to the
latest versions of five Corel products. To register for the program, teachers
and faculty members must provide proof that they are an active member of an
accredited academic institution.
According to the company, Corel introduced the program "in response to
increasing demand for its creative products with academic customers," and it
complements the company's Education License Program, which offers Corel software
at a reduced price for educational institutions. The Midwestern Higher Education
Compact (MHEC) also recently selected Corel as the new creative software
provider for design, print, media and Web. With the Teacher-Try-It Program, the
company hopes teachers will take the opportunity to try Corel products for
themselves and subsequently adopt them for use in their classroom.
Corel products in the Teacher-Try-It Program include:
- CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X7 for vector illustration, page layout,
drawing, tracing, photo-editing, and Web design;
- CorelDRAW Technical Suite X6 for technical illustration and 3D
- CorelCAD 2014 for 2D drafting and 3D design;
- Corel Painter X3 for digital drawing and painting; and
- Corel PaintShop Pro X6 for photo editing.
Corel has partnered with digital distribution and management provider,
Kivuto Solutions, to offer the Teacher-Try-It
