Another tools firm steps up to offer colleges and universities cheap access to its tech

Luxology, the firm behind 3D art tool Modo, has announced a new Education Provider Program which offers colleges, universities and 3D animation schools reduced price access to its software.

The firm said the program is "a key part of Luxology’s plan to meet the growing demand for Modo by offering additional educational benefits to customers in the US, Europe and Asia".

As part of the Education Provider Program, schools and universities will receive reduced pricing for faculty members and labs, including options for floating licenses and a blanket site license; automatic entitlement to any modo updates that are released within a year of issuance or renewal; access to Luxology training materials at reduced pricing; and Luxology technical support for select academic projects.

“In our fast paced industry, it’s imperative that schools stay ahead of trends,” said Bob Bennett, vice president of marketing for Luxology.

“Our new Education Provider Program paves the way for schools of all kinds to easily offer a curriculum that includes 3D software that is currently used by the most advanced design, game development and animation studios.”
