For Academics, Students, & Non-profits

The standard package includes all lecture videos, slides and homeworks, but does not include answer keys, exams, and exam answer keys because universities are using OCS materials. To prevent cheating, we do not release these freely. Educators may contact us to receive the Academic package which includes all these items, but the person must be a college faculty member or professor. Academic packages require educators to keep the rubrics, exams, and exam answer keys private, similar to publisher requirements for textbook answer keys.

Student clubs or capture the flag teams may work with an educator to gain this access, but the educator is ultimately responsible for keeping the materials private to prevent cheating. Additionally students, educators, or schools that wish to purchase the Premium package will receive an academic 50% discount, but academic status must be verified. Finally educational non-profit-organizations may contact us to work out similar arrangements.
