Student Access beyond the Classroom
Learn anytime, anywhere with SOLIDWORKS Student Access
Students want to use SOLIDWORKS outside the classroom, day or night.
Students work with other departments or collaborate on projects in other cities or countries.
Computer labs are over crowded and access needs to be flexible.
You want to offer classes online.
The Student Access Initiative
The SOLIDWORKS Student Access Initiative connects students to SOLIDWORKS software outside the classroom or laboratory anytime from anywhere. With innovative licensing for SOLIDWORKS Education Edition, students can log on from anywhere on campus, from home, even away from home.
Schools that participate in the Student Access Initiative give students the ability to work on assignments remotely or off-hours, which increases student usage, facilitates distance learning, and enables off-site collaboration and independent study.
Student Access licenses are FREE
Any qualifying institution can provide licenses to students for off-campus use, freeing up lab resources and allowing students to work from anywhere.
Student Access Benefits
Student Access licenses can be used to support independent study courses, distance learning programs, and articulation agreements. Some do not even require connecting to the school server:
- Instructors: Instructors can assign homework, prepare remotely, use licenses for distance learning or independent study students, prepare for their own certification exams, and practice SOLIDWORKS skills during school breaks.
- Students: Students can work from anywhere, complete assignments during off-hours, use licenses for independent study or distance learning courses, articulate with college programs, prepare for certification exams, build personal portfolios, and participate in student competitions.
