A teacher, department, school or school district can buy student licenses for multiple Discourse units at a volume discount. For example, a school district can buy 4,500 student licenses and provide 450 licenses to 10 different schools. One of those schools may then give 300 licenses to U.S. History teachers for 10 classes and 150 licenses to a World Literature teacher with five classes. The district would receive instructions on distributing the student licenses. The determination of which units would be used, the number of classes and the number of students per class would be made during each instructor’s setup process. Teachers have access to the Discourse unit and students’ work for one year after the initial set-up date. This provides time to review students’ assignments and answer questions that may arise about a student’s grade.
