ITS is asking that CSRs help faculty and staff download and install the software for their assigned departments. If the CSR is unable to carry out these functions, faculty and staff in the department are welcome to contact the IT Service Center for Student Desktop Support Technician assistance.
Keynote (presentation software) and Pages (word processor) are still licensed for campus Macs.
However, Numbers (the spreadsheet) and iLife are not part of our Volume licensing agreement. New Macs come with iLife (iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD, GarageBand) and users of those computers can continue to use the installed version. Updates, however, must be purchased through Apple's App Store.
No, AELP covers only university-owned computers.
AELP software can be used by student employees on university-owned computers, but not personal computers.
Yes, as long as the computers are university owned.
Keynote, Pages, and Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) can be installed directly from the downloaded DMG file, and do not require a disk.
AELP is a full site license which covers iLife and iWork as well as Mac OS X.As of June 2012, CU's Boulder campus has a more restricted Volume Licensing arrangement, which covers only Mac OS X, Pages, and Keynote. The change represented a large savings to the campus, while keeping access to the most used software products from Apple.
There is no direct departmental cost for using the AELP. The AELP provides software and licenses to the campus as a common good with the expectation that this will reduce the total amount of money the campus spends on Apple software and licenses.
AELP is for Macs purchased with CU-Boulder campus departmental funds, and does not include personal computers.
