Discounts for Education
Introduce Slid.es for Education so that Students can use their edu account to gain access to the full version. By allowing this, many many students will be able to use this and Slid.es as a company will grow exponentially. Many great companies simillar to Slid.es have this feature, so why shouldn't this. Its a great Win-Win situation!
We will be adding discounts for education, although we haven’t worked out the specifics yet.
I really wish they implement it soon. Has been 9 months since the last announcement about adding discount for students!

Hi there, any updates yet?
It would be really cool to have the download slides function for free for educational at least.
Is it posible to use an Api for multiple users. Let's say like students could create their own presentation and then upload to the main account?
I just discovered I've been using slides for 6 years, brought here by the intensive use of reveal.js.
For three of those, I've been using it for scientific presentations at conferences, in different labs and universities. Many people saw it and tried slides out, and many of them decided to adopt it instead of other presentation softwares!
I prefer slides over traditional methods due to the fact that it's based on reveal (and I can switch back and forth almost easily), and the two scroll directiosn, that are great to adapt talks to the time and audience!
The downside is that in some presentations there are ideas I'd like to keep not-so-public - so for the moment I just take down decks (bummer). However, I'm still a student (albeit graduate) and unluckily I can't justify 60$ of expenses per year. I don't want to stop using it and as long as I'm in academia I want to use it, hoping to inspire other people to do so. Please add a discount for education!

Just a note that not all education domains are .edu domains. I know some use a human (maybe mechanical turk) method of approving educational accounts.

Totally agree, as a university student I love your service very much, but we often need to present our slides on classes thus bring our own laptops is not convenient, and we can't afford the price now. Thanks a lot if you can just give free slides download to us!
I completely agree, I am a university student and while I love the product and would prefer the full paid version I simply cannot financially justify paying even 50 dollars for the extra features.
Why is not let me go on google sides
A free EDU plan like on Prezi would be really cool.
Nice Post, I hardly found useful post which contains real and useful information. I am 100% sure who ever read your post will definitely going to learn something useful.
educators must also get a special price since they are making presentations not for profit. Prezi, emaze, offer such feature why not slides.com...
