Unity Technologies, the leading provider of the multi-platform game development platform for Web, PC, Mac, Wii, and iPhone, today announced a worldwide education distribution and training relationship with Noesis Interactive.
Educators around the world have begun to develop academic programs to teach students how to develop video games as part of a game development track, certificate or degree. To enhance and accelerate this opportunity, Noesis Interactive will serve as a one stop shop for education customers to purchase both the Unity Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and Noesis created Video Courseware at special educational prices, along with extensive instructional materials for the Winter Terms beginning in January 2010.

Noesis is about making it easy for students to learn how to use tools while enabling teachers to focus on conceptual learning and the art of game design. Together, we plan to meet the needs of educators and fulfill our common vision.
