Typically, SketchUp Pro licenses have to be purchased. The SketchUp Pro educational licenses to schools on a state-wide basis Grant allows teachers access to a great learning tool without any costs incurred.
We highly recommend downloading Google Earth (free) as well, as SketchUp Pro and Google Earth are used in conjunction for modeling real world buildings which can be placed in Google Earth.
What's SketchUp Pro?
SketchUp is software that you can use to create 3D models of anything you like. Teachers are using it on many grade levels and in many subject areas from computer technology to math, geography, and science.
What's Google Earth?
Google Earth lets you fly anywhere on Earth to view satellite imagery, maps, terrain, 3D buildings, from galaxies in outer space to the canyons of the ocean. You can explore rich geographical content, save your toured places, and share with others.
Who's eligible for the license grant?
All states within the United States.
How do we apply?
Have your state technology director contact us at SketchUp Pro Statewide K-12 License Grant<>/a>. We'll reply with an application form for your state technology director to fill out.
What types of licenses will we be receiving?
You will be issued both a lab license and a set of single-user educator licenses.
How does SketchUp Pro lab licensing work?
Networked Lab Licenses are intended for computers in a networked lab environment, and are floating licenses. We'll generate one license code for each platform (Windows and Mac) that you can distribute to all of your districts/schools for installation in their respective labs.
Windows network installations require one of the machines on the network to act as a license server; other computers must be able to 'see' this machine on the network in order for the Lab License to work. To see the steps for installing a Windows network license, visit this Help Center article. On Mac networks, no license server is necessary.
If your school/state has a laptop scenario, we can help provide licensing for that as well.
Is our license a perpetual or termed license?
All license codes are good for 3 years, and upon expiration, you may re-apply for a new license.
How long will it take for us to receive our license codes after we have filled out the request form?
It can take up to one week for your license request to be processed.
Are version upgrades free?
All version upgrades are free as long as your license code has not expired. Please contact us at [email protected] to request an upgrade. Please note that upgrading will not extend the expiration date for your current license.
Is there any cost at all to us?
No. This type of licensing is a grant consisting of networked lab seats and single-user educator licenses. There is no cost to you or your schools.
How can our students use SketchUp at home?
We suggest having your students download the free version of SketchUp for home use.
Are SketchUp Pro Networked Lab License holders eligible for technical support?
Please keep in mind that answers to most questions can be found in the SketchUp Knowledge Center. It's free and it's available 24 hours a day.
However, license administrators with active SketchUp Pro Lab Licenses are eligible for email technical support. Please note that technical support is only available to the license administrator; students and faculty who use SketchUp Pro on individual laptops are not eligible for this service.
