Why an ACADEMIC Edition?

Since we’ve never liked students having to pay much for software, we have introduced the Dragon1 ACADEMIC Edition for only 1200 euro per year.

You get to decide for yourself if and how you want to learn to create models and diagrams in your study or at school.

In addition, if you are a teacher and want to collaborate with several colleagues or work from different locations, you need also the Dragon1 PRO edition. Read more about the differences between the editions of Dragon1 here.

Dragon1 ACADEMIC gives you limited access to a repository where your data is stored.

There is really not that much more to say other than to create an account, log in and get started. Any questions you have for us, you can email them to info@dragon1.com.
