Professors, teachers and mentors can use the Campus Advisors online training to master Git and GitHub and learn best practices for teaching students with GitHub. For more information, see "Campus Advisors."
Note: As an instructor, you can't create GitHub accounts for your students. Students must create their own GitHub accounts.
Teachers can manage a course on software development with GitHub Education. GitHub Classroom allows you to distribute code, provide feedback, and manage coursework using GitHub. For more information, see "Manage coursework with GitHub Classroom."
If you're a student or academic faculty and your school isn't partnered with GitHub as a GitHub Campus Program school, then you can still individually apply for discounts to use GitHub. For more information, see "Use GitHub for your schoolwork" or "Use GitHub in your classroom and research."
