GitKraken Resources for Schools

In Partnership with the GitHub Campus Program

When students are getting started using Git for version control it can be confusing, but it doesn’t have to be.  GitKraken Client helps make the process easier, which is why we offer GitKraken Client Stand-Alone, free for teachers and students at universities through the GitHub Campus Program. It’s serverless, works on air-gapped networks, and doesn’t require individual accounts. It’s one of our Enterprise flexible license management options that would typically cost $227 per user key.

"I recommend GitKraken to my students because the visual representation of the change history helps them understand the complex branching and forking features of Git. GitKraken also makes it easy to accomplish common tasks."

It makes Git more visual and accessible with an intuitive UI, the flexibility to switch between a GUI or a terminal, and a built-in merge conflict editor. It offers seamless integrations with GitHub and GitHub Enterprise, making it easy to connect repos, use GitHub Actions for workflow automations, and to review, approve, and merge GitHub pull requests directly in GitKraken.

"I teach my students to use GitKraken because it’s easy to use, understand, and has beautiful UI/UX."
