Question: Can I share my subscription with my friends and peers?
Answer: No. Each subscription is for the selected number of schools, classrooms, and/or students.

If you are a school, the subscription has to remain with those teachers and classrooms in that single building. If you are a teacher, the subscription has to remain with up to 36 students in your classroom. All users can use the program at school or at home.
