The best way to learn Delphi and Object Pascal is with Embarcadero’s RAD Studio, a powerful Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and a robust set of libraries and frameworks that makes building applications easy. Delphi in RAD Studio is a commercial product, but is available for most education uses for free. Depending on your requirements, you may need a different type of license.
Free Non-Commercial Licenses - Restrictions Apply
All the features of the Professional edition of Delphi available with a free license if you have your own or a dedicated PC. You install a named license after you register online. There are restrictions on the use of this license. These are clearly explained upon download. This is ideal for student’s home projects or in a setting where you can have a dedicated PC.
Selected Academics Use Only
Many schools want to have one or more computer rooms outfitted with Delphi, for this we offer specific academic editions. These are not specific for individuals. They are issued to the school. What is great is that students can use these in class and still have the Community Editions installed on their personal machines to practice and learn at home.
