There is a choice of licence types: network or online. The main difference is how students will access the learning resources.
The network version is installed within your institution and can be accessed by students only on computers within the centre.

The online version is available to students from any computer with access to the Internet. Students simply go to the site and log in. If you are using Results Manager (Learner Tracking licence), their scores will be kept on a central database which you, as a teacher, can similarly access from any computer connected to the Internet.
