That depends on which version of the Education Software you purchased: LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Software Single UserAs the name implies, this is only allowed to be installed on a single computer: "The single license version of the EV3 Software allows you to install and run the software on one computer." LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Software Site ...

You need to purchase the EV3 Education version of the software. It includes the EV3 Education version firmware. EV3 Education Software (single user licence) EV3 Software v1.1 Update (includes v1.06E firmware update)

A basic EV3 seems to be enough for most of the basic projects, but you might find yourself in need of a handful of extra parts (gears, beams, etc). The basic kit does not include a gyroscope, but you can buy an extra one separately. The same stands for the ultrasonic distance sensor. The alternative is the educational set which already includes the ...

There are indeed two versions of the firmware to support the two sets of capabilities of the EV3 Brick, both currently at version 1.3/1.03: EV3 Firmware V1.03*H*.bin - The current "Home" edition. EV3 Firmware V1.03*E*.bin - The current "Education" edition. From what I've seen, you should be able to use either firmware on the bricks, however to get access ...

We had the same problem. The current version of the Kit ships with version 2.1 of the software which does not have the "remote control" item on the Tools menu. We uninstalled this version, downloaded version 2.0 from the below link... and bam... the "remote control" option is there and it even works great through our laptop's Bluetooth connection. Where ...

All of the commands for controlling the robot are documented on Lego's website here: http://mindstorms.lego.com/en-us/support/files/default.aspx You can write your own custom remote control software in most programming languages, but this is generally difficult on a Mac. Windows and Linux computers are easier to program for, Windows being the easiest. This ...

As far as I'm aware, there's no NXT education version other than WeDo and ED-E...the Humanoid Robot Starter Pack. I would get in contact with your schools administration to see if they already have a LEGO education program. There are 140 Lego Educations centres across the world that offer after school programs.

I recommend this comparison: http://www.ev-3.net/en/archives/98 In the middle of the page you can see a table with differences: LEGO Mindstorms Education EV3 and the home version of LEGO Mindstorms EV3 And at the bottom: LEGO Mindstorms Education EV3 Core Set, LEGO Mindstorms Education EV3 expansion Set, and the home version of LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Set - ...

There is an expansion set, as well as a selection of additional sensors, etc. you could purchase, listed on the products page of the LEGO site's Educational Section: The Expansion Set - Lots more elements, no electronics. The Gyro sensor The IR Beacon - This comes with the home set, but not the Education set. The Core Set - no software - see "What is ...

Yes, you can - I have done so on numerous occasions, and actually prefer to use the retail software over the education version even when working with the education kit. The NXT bricks in the two sets are exactly identical. You might need to update the NXT's firmware before using the brick with the retail software, however.


2

Note that the Education version doesn't come with any software - if you want to use the full features of the Education EV3 brick (mostly around Data Logging), you will need to purchase the Education version of the software - thus making the price about £70-85 higher (which may still be cheaper than purchasing the Retail edition and adding the extra ...

There are differences between EV3 Education and Home set including software, hardware and parts. Software A slight difference is in the firmware that comes with on-board datalogging capabilities only for Education version Hardware The retail version includes a small amount of components compared with educational set, components that include one small ...

Instead of using the datalog block from education version, you can create a custom version using the file access block. It's a bit more difficult, but more flexible... You won't be able to directly use EV3 datalog management, but you can structure the file to be directly compatible with csv format, readable by spreadsheet programs.

The LEGO Education website does indeed not list prices, as you have to go through a distributor and get a quote there. However, it seems that LEGO acts as its own distributor in the United States, which is slightly confusing, especially considering it's on a separate website: http://www.legoeducation.us/. There you can get prices, and you'll see a ...

I'm now using Retail EV3 with Education firmware, and this magically solved all the problems with the Bluetooth connection. Apart from that, I couldn't find any other difference. So for me it works fine :)

According to an education Community Manager states that you should have received a link when you purchased the licence. If you didn't receive one you should contact your reseller - it depends on which region you are in as to whether logging in to the LEGO education site would enable a direct link for you.


1

Yes, I do this with mine because the consumer version of the software has more features than the education (but no datalog and you won't have the pieces for the building instructions that come in the software in your kit)

I received my EV3 educational kit last week. Yes, it comes with the a rechargeable battery, battery charger, the castor wheel, and a code that permits me to download the EV3 software. It is disappointing that the educational kit does NOT come with the infra red sensor or IR remote. Also the educational set comes with approximately 500 more technic bricks ...
