Educational Products by JetBrains

Posted on by Tatiana Vasilyeva

Back in 2015, when we announced JetBrains’ new brand, we were talking about the drive that identified us as a company and as developers, and united us with our users. We were talking not only about the drive to develop but also about the drive to face new challenges and to make a dent in this world.

Today we’re taking another step to prove our beliefs. Please welcome the free and open source Educational Products by JetBrains.


Everything started in 2014 with PyCharm Educational Edition, the free and open source tool for Python teachers and students. Today we have two more programming languages we support: Kotlin and Java, with more to come.

As a learner, you can practice programming right inside your IDE and get instant feedback:

As an educator, you can create your learning materials and augment them with programming practice assignments and integrated tests:

We have so many ideas for how to make learning and teaching programming more practice-oriented, challenging, and engaging for anyone, no matter what background or goals they have. If you are passionate about learning or sharing your knowledge, if you feel education is a field everyone should be allowed to play on, we are excited to get your feedback and discuss your ideas. Give it a try and leave a comment here or find us on Twitter.

    This looks awesome! Though I’m guessing I’m not going to see a CLion C/C++ one anytime soon.

      Thanks, Henry! We’re considering to support more IDEs and programming languages. But you’re right, it is more on a discussion than implementation stage at the moment.

    For python and java there are free tools in abundance. You should try and create IDEs available for Ruby, C++ and JavaScript.

    • Tatiana Vasilyeva says:

      April 10, 2018

      Python and Java are here to start with. We hope to have more IDEs and languages supported in the future. I’m just curious, what free tools for python and java are you using? What do you like about them?

    Got to hand it to you guys and gals at JetBrains – you never stop surprising 🙂

    I’ve known and used your products since I was in school doing my B.Sc. and you have been in all totally awesome (I’m still semi-effective in repressing memories of IntelliJ/IDEA 8 😉 ) resulting in IntelliJ/IDEA being my tool of choice when I did my M.Sc. project.

    Today’s Toolbox is nothing short of awesome, and these educational versions are just the thing to point newcomers to 🙂

    Cheers! Skál! Prost! 干杯!乾杯!Skål! 🙂

    It looks great! I am developing a little course with EduTools using test, and I was wondering how is it possible to have questions, like [here](

    It seems to be missing on the [start guide](

    • Tatiana Vasilyeva says:

      April 23, 2018

      Hi Diego! Sorry for not answering for a while. You can create that kind of tasks via Stepik only ( Then your learners will be able to solve quizzes inside IDE as well. We’re working on the new tutorial that will cover integration with Stepik, and I will add a link to start guide as soon as it is ready. Thanks! So far, If you have questions about Stepik integration, please feel free to mail me, and I will try to help.

    Would be great to learn on this, but I keep putting my email in for a license and it never sends me a link or any kind of reply. Emailed sales as well….. crickets.

      Hi Bradford!
      I see a student pack activated for your account. So, I presume this has been resolved, right?
      Please let me know.


      • Bradford Swift says:

        May 7, 2018

        No, I haven’t gotten any of the emails at all for setting up my account. I just tried again and it always says that it sent me something but nothing ever arrives. I’ve tried having someone else email me and the account works just fine and nothing is in the spam folder. Pretty odd. Maybe if you fwd’d me the welcome email? Don’t know why the automated system is bouncing off but I guess its on the side of my school’s email server then.

        • Eugene Toporov says:

          May 9, 2018

          I have forwarded you the email. Hope you receive it.
