How do students get access

How do my students get a free SpotOpp student licence?

Students at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (Hogeschool van Amsterdam) can request a free student licence by clicking the link in the SpotOpp info at the CMI tool page. They will be directed to the SpotOpp student page where they can click a button to request their licence with their email account.

Why do students have to indicate their teacher and class when applying?

An analysis in SpotOpp combines the input from different contributors to increase reliability of the outcome. We call that the Wikipedia principle.

In class they will learn about the strategic market analysis and can then use SpotOpp to practice this analysis with a case. The input and results are aggregated per class, as would be done for instance for a business unit in an organization, rather than the entire school. This way they can clearly see the effect of their analysis in a business setup.

Why do students need to request for a second licence for their thesis?

An analysis in SpotOpp combines the input from different contributors that are linked to a specific account (normally this is a company, but for the student account this is the school). For their thesis students will perform an analysis for a real, existing company.

To ensure they only include input from and show this -privacy sensitive- info to employees from that company they will need to get a separate licence for their thesis. This licence will only be linked to that organization, and not the school. If the organization gives permission the student can grant you access by adding you as a user.
