For the Spring 2020 semester, NI made available an extended LabVIEW and Multisim Education Edition license to complete courseware at home, but this is no longer available. Academic Volume Licenses are available for those need to get NI software in one cost-effective, easy-to-manage package.

You state herein, " can only use the software for your personal education purposes, and not for any commercial, instructional, for-credit coursework..." yet if a for-credit coursework is not included inside the personal education purposes, then what category does it go to? Like if one wants to do some homework or project assigned in a course, does it not mean personal education?
I am confused at that point. Hope you shall clarify.

Thanks in advance.

If LabVIEW is required for coursework, you university typically has an academic site license and student install options, so you should talk to your teacher to get a licensed copy.


(This is my own opinion, I am sure somebody from NI can clarify further)
