Some of you heard that part of what I did in Office 365 was thinking about education and how to help students and teachers. Well, my team just released a sample app that does just that.

The Contoso Learning Companion is a sample Windows application that demonstrates how students and teachers can run their teaching and learning more effectively with the help of Office 365 services and a modern Windows 8 application that eliminates the need to visit multiple Web sites that represent different classes. The application allows developers to easily build solutions to the education market.

Take a look at: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35556 

You will need an Office 365 account to get this to run (if you are a school or just want to try, it will not hurt you at all to try), you can start here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/

Until next time...

  • This is the perfect application for academic institutions to customize and deploy to their teachers and students.

  • Now updated to ver 2.0, including support for both SharePoint 2010 and 2013. :)

  • Great news. Download and install was a breeze

    But I just can't get the solution to connect to either my Office 365 (2010) or my Office 365 (2013 Preview) environments :-( whenever I try to do an action like create a class, it creates it in cache but not on the sharepoint site.

  • Take it all back :-) just managed to create a class on O365 Preview and it stuck. just study groups are mis-behaving. but I can live with that. Happy bunny!!! Can test and play!!!

    Thanks folks for this great starter pack. This saves weeks of dev time for windows 8/365 app development.
