Last week I wrote about the announcement of Student Advantage, which allows you to provide Office Pro Plus at no additional cost to all of your students, as long as all your staff are licensed for Office appropriately.
I’ve been asked what’s included in the Office Pro Plus licence, and what devices can students use it on. And so I thought a handy table would be useful, summarising what Office apps are available for which devices, because even if you’re using Windows laptops as a standard device, it’s likely students will have their own device or smartphone that they will also be able to install Office on. The Student Advantage subscription allows students to run Office on up to 5 machines (PC or Mac) and also on up to 5 mobile devices (Android, iPhone etc).
The products included are Office 365 ProPlus for PC, Office 365 ProPlus for Mac, Office Mobile for iPhone and Office Mobile for Android. And, yes, this is full Office on the PC, Mac, iPhone, and Android platform and all are available for offline use. And remember these can be installed on institution-owned, student-owned or family-owned devices.
The table below is my summary of what’s available for which device under Student Advantage (or are already available pre-installed on your phone, or free in the relevant app store).
Office Web Apps
For the iPad, in addition to Lync and OneNote apps, we recommend using Office Web Apps for Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
For information on what’s in each app on which device, then here are the links:
