Apple Bundles Keynote & iLife For Teachers For US$14.95

Apple Bundles Keynote & iLife For Teachers For US$14.95

by , 2:15 PM EST, January 29th, 2003

Apple has rolled out yet another promotion for teachers, and this one is likely to appeal directly to quite a few. The company is offering a bundle of iLife and its new Keynote presentation software to teachers for US$14.95.

iLife is the bundled package of iMovie, iPhoto, iTunes, and iDVD, and is regularly priced at US$49.95. Keynote is Apple's PowerPoint killer that is priced at US$99. Apple announced both iLife and Keynote at MWSF 2003. From Apple's iLife + Keynote K-12 information page (note that there is a separate page for higher education):

iLife and Keynote for $14.95
Apple has put together a package of the latest digital tools especially for education. This offer is available to every K-12 teacher in the United States at the exceptional price of $14.95*. This limited-time offer represents a savings of 88%, that is $113 off the regular education price. These powerful new tools make it even easier to integrate technology into your curriculum and enhance your classroom experience. iLife and Keynote take full advantage of the power of Mac OS X v10.2 “Jaguar” and provide an unparalleled user experience.

Program details
From January 29 through March 31, 2003, qualifying K-12 teachers in the United States can purchase iLife and Keynote for $14.95 — a savings of $113 off the regular education price.

Do I qualify?
To qualify for the program, you must be a currently employed K-12 teacher at a recognized school (public, private, Catholic, Bureau of Indian Affairs) and you must agree to have the software delivered to your school address.

You can find more information on the deal at Apple's Web site, including information on K-12 and higher education. Thanks to Observer Alan Schuming for the heads up on the bundle.

The Mac Observer Spin:

This offer from Apple is smart, smart, smart, smart, smart. Keynote can be of enormous use to educators, and offering it at such a discount is sure to attract attention from quite a few of them. Like some of Apple's other education promotions, it also shows that Apple considers educators to be important, and will engender good will for the company. In the process, it will likely increase interest in Jaguar, which means new Macs for some teachers, as Keynote itself is likely to be a very desirable app for many educators. Smart, smart, smart, smart, smart.
