Welcome to this tutorial covering how some of the key aspects of our educational plans. We’ll be looking at using accounts, access codes and seats, as well as discussing subscriptions and accessing invoices.
If you’ve not used Construct 3 before, it’s an HTML5-based 2D game engine which produces HTML5 games for a variety of platforms. Being HTML5-based, Construct 3 is a web application, meaning you can use it in a browser – making it device independent. If you want to load Construct 3, simply visit this URL https://editor.construct.net.
For education users, we have specific subscription plans which give you access to a certain number of licenses and we have put management tools in place to facilitate use for these licenses through direct assignment to other accounts or through the use of access codes which will be discussed further later in this tutorial.
Throughout this tutorial, we’ll be using a specific set of terms which are defined below:
A seat acts as an individual Construct 3 license, which can either be assigned to a specific user or distributed using an access code. An educational subscription for Construct 3 is made up of as many seats as you need. For example, if you needed thirty computers using Construct 3 at once, you’d require thirty seats.
Seats can be assigned to accounts registered with us on construct.net. When a seat is assigned, it means the user can access the full version of Construct 3 as a license has been assigned to that account.
Seats do not have to be assigned to an account to allow the associated license to be used however. Unassigned seats can be used through an access code.
An Access code acts as a log-in to the full version of Construct 3, temporarily using one available seat from your available pool.
A subscription or plan represents the contract you have with us, containing all the seats that you have purchased, whether you are a teacher, an institute, a district etc.
Your Construct account allows you access to both the Construct.net website and Construct's editor itself.
Your plan management tools are accessible from our website (construct.net). But in order to use the software, you or your students will need to open and log into the editor.
Bear in mind, if you and/or your institute decide to use only access codes, your students do not even need accounts registered on our website – more on this later.
