Corel Offers Free Software for Teachers and Faculty Members

Corel has launched its new Teacher-Try-It Program at the ISTE 2014 conference in Atlanta.

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 visualization;
  • 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 Program.
