Adopter Program

ExtendSim Adopter
Adopt ExtendSim as THE simulation tool for your institution

ExtendSim AdopterBecoming an ExtendSim Adopter offers educators at accredited institutions the opportunity to teach simulation utilizing the full capabilities of ExtendSim — at no charge. After all, it only makes sense for schools to give students a competitive edge by teaching with the same products they will use once they graduate. Once approved as an ExtendSim Adopter, Imagine That Inc. will provide:

. . An ExtendSim Academic Network License to the approved department at no charge. (Like the ExtendSim Network license, the ExtendSim Academic Network License deploys full functionality of the ExtendSim Suite tool to users on a network, but is limited to non-commercial use.)
. . Students from the approved department the opportunity to purchase a Student version of ExtendSim for their non-networked use for $25 -- a 75% discount.
Note: This 75% discount on downloads of Student is only available to students in North America.

Accredited institutions where the primary focus is on educating students are eligible to apply for ExtendSim Adopter status. Apply for ExtendSim AdopterInstitutions that support external systems, such as technology institutes, non- or for-profit hospitals, for-profit schools, for-profit labs, or think tanks, are not eligible for Adopter status.

To become an ExtendSim Adopter, we require:

. 1 University and college/department name, address, and URL
. 2 Primary contact name, phone, email address
  3 Contact information for other professors and/or graduate students in your department who will also use the software
  4 Name of course in which ExtendSim is being taught – please submit course syllabus
  5 The number of seats (up to a max of 100 seats) and platform (Windows or Macintosh) for the Academic Network License.
  6 A copy of the course syllabus for each semester you use the Academic Network License.
  7 At the end of each semester, we require a brief summarization of how ExtendSim was used in the course and the benefits attained through its use (which may or may not be published by ITI)
  8 A link from the Adopter's web site to the ExtendSim web site.
  9 License must be re-approved on a yearly basis to maintain Adopter status.

Use of the Academic Network License is restricted to the college/department using the license for teaching purposes and have been approved ExtendSim Adopters. This license is not to be used for commercial purposes, such as research that is subsidized by a private or government enterprise.* Only currently enrolled students and professors within that college/department are authorized to use the Academic Network License.

If you have already been accepted as an ExtendSim Adopter, click here to update and renew your status.

If you choose to not become an ExtendSim Adopter, you may still purchase Academic Network Licenses at the cost of $125/seat with a minimum purchase of a 5-station license. There is a $25/seat annual renewal associated with this license as well.

*Projects are typically considered non-commercial if the simulation results are made publicly available. If some type of financial benefit results from simulation, fairly, you should pay market value. Academic software may not be used for commercial, professional, commercial training, or other for-profit purposes. Such uses are in violation of the ExtendSim License Agreement and could affect your status as an Adopter.
