I currently have Adobe Edge 1.5 and I notice when I go to my Application Manager - which is now switch to CC. I have the abiltiy to install this. I currently have e-learning suite license, which will change next week to CC membership. Does this mean I get Edge CC for free. I heard somewhere Adobe was going to start charging for this.
I'm not 100% sure about what your licensing agreement will and will not allow, but Animate CC is available with a Creative Cloud subscription. If your educational license gives you access to the Creative Cloud, you should have access to Animate CC. If you have additional questions, you should definitely contact your account manager to clarify.
