Program Azure Dev Tools for Teaching (formerly Microsoft Imagine)

Azure Dev Tools for Teaching is a Microsoft licensing program that provides member departments or faculty with unlimited licenses of selected products for teaching and research purposes.

What is included in the program

The program includes:
  • Operating systems (Windows) including SDKs and DDKs
  • Development tools (Visual Studio* including SDK, Robotics Developer Studio, ...)
  • Server products (Windows Server, ISA Server, BizTalk Server, Exchange Server, SQL Server, Systems Center products, ...)
  • Applications: Visio, Project, Access, Virtual PC, ...
  • Azure: 100$ credit
... and more. It does not include, for example, Microsoft Office components (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook) or applications for home users (games, educational software, etc.).

Who can use the program

FI students - on their home computers, as long as they are taking at least one course in computer science (trivially fulfilled). The student must be an FI student, it is not enough to be enrolled in a course at FI. After graduating from FI, they can continue to use the software, but may not reinstall it (e.g. when reinstalling a computer) and will no longer receive updates from FI.

FI teachers - on their office computers, if they are FI employees and at the same time teach an IT-oriented subject, under specific conditions (interested teachers should contact the administrator of Azure Dev Tools for Teaching at FI MU).

FI doctoral students - on their computers in their offices.

It is also possible to install the software in FI computer labs and research laboratories.

None of these uses must contradict the permitted uses of the software and in particular must not correspond to any of the prohibited uses of the software - see below.

Uses of the software

The software within the programme can be used:
  • For the purpose of and in support of teaching and non-profit or grant research in computer science.
It is not possible to use for example:
  • For for-profit research (e.g., involving companies) and teaching (e.g., training of external entities).
  • As a terminal for Unix/Linux access (in the sense of predominant use - no problem reading mail on Aise, of course).
  • For computers of parents, friends, etc.
  • For commercial application development or other profitable work.
  • For faculty work not related to research or teaching (e.g., economics, network administration, or other infrastructure).

If you are interested in a use that is not explicitly stated or adequately explained here, do not experiment and contact the program administrator instead.
