Beta level editor kit for Portal 2 now available

As someone who teaches level design for games in higher education I was very glad to see the release a couple of weeks or so ago of the Portal 2 authoring tools for free, albeit in beta version. These allow for the creation of maps (both single and multiplayer), skins for characters, models and audio and are now downloadable through Steam.

Apparently there is more to come from Valve on this front and between them, UDK and the imminent release of the free CryEngine SDK/level editor there is now plenty of updated material on different platforms for aspiring level designers (and educators!) to sink their teeth into.
