I’ve been working with the education team at Microsoft for over 3 years now. In that time the education landscape, from a technology perspective, has changed massively. It’s almost unrecognisable. The challenges and aspirations have evolved, the technology has matured, and it’s easy to forget just how much there is to know! To make it a bit easier, in association with PC Pro Magazine, we’ve put together a guide on everything you need to know about Office 365 Education.
You can view the guide here below, or check it out on SlideShare – it’s free! Here are some excerpts to whet your appetite:
We’re heading into the holiday season, so wouldn’t it be nice to give something to your students? Starting December 1st Microsoft made Student Advantage available to qualifying schools, colleges and universities around the world.
Signing up for Office 365 is really, really simple. It’s possible to co-exist with your existing mail solution, and there are ways to migrate your existing content too! It’s more than just mail; there’s SkyDrive Pro for storing work online; Lync Online for having conversations, distance learning and sharing ideas; and there’s SharePoint Online to pull teaching resources together and make them easy to find.
Oh, and it’s free too!
