Unfortunately, it's for American teachers only.

Thanks for posting this Odiyya, great stuff. I've posted a piece about this in which I credit and link to your post at The Ecotality Blog.

I think this is great -- but why not make it available as a digital download? Put some DRM on it or something if Paramount insists, and save all the physical material used to make the disc and packaging, along with the energy of moving it around.
My community-college classrooms four years ago all had the technology to project from a computer screen just as easily as a standard DVD, are High-Schools that far behind?

A digital download would be great. The movie's DVD is said to be contained in environmentally-friendly packaging, which is good, but we'd be doing the environment a bigger favor if we didn't have to deal with all that packaging at all.
