We would be happy to have your students use our TeamUp game and it's level
editor if that's of interest. It is not technically free (because it's the
downloadable version that includes the level editor), but we would be happy
to provide them with licenses. It allows saving/loading of levels.

Hey there, everyone. As you may know, I have been involved in the
development of the game design curriculum at Parsons in NYC. Things have
been growing steadily, and we're going to be offering Game Design 2 for the
first time next semester.
The focus of this class is level design, and I'm hoping that the class will
prepare students for professional level design work by having them spend the
semester building levels for a variety of games. So my hope is to have a
number of level editing ready games available for school use.
In light of this, I have two questions for the list:
1) Do you know of any good free or cheap, perhaps online, games that have
level editors? Preference goes to simple-to-use editors that have some kind
of save functionality, such that levels can be worked on outside of class
and viewed in it.
2) Does anyone have anything that they've worked on that they would be
interested in donating to Parsons for this purpose? Any old, forgotten games
with decent editing tools lying around? Aside from the joy of fostering the
next generation of designers, you'll get to see a pool of prospective hires
actually working with your tools.
Feel free to reply to me directly on #2. #1 I think might make an
interesting list topic.
Thanks in advance,
