Yesterday Microsoft launched the next generation of Office 365, but did you know this included Office 365 Education as well? We first launched Office 365 for education last June and since then we’ve heard inspiring stories from our customers including Kilmarnock College and the University of West London about how they’re succeeding with Office 365 Education.
Microsoft’s Anthony Salcito, Vice President, Worldwide Public Sector Education, has written about how the new Office 365 Education puts teachers in control, today.
As part of Microsoft’s commitment to education, Office 365 Education is available for free. Schools can access all of the features and benefits of Microsoft Office – apps and services – simply by signing up at www.office365.com/education. With free access to the transformative innovations built in to Office 365, teachers are unleashed to fully embrace the possibilities offered by technology. Educators who once felt boxed in by the rigid demands of their curriculum can now explore new ways to engage and motivate their students. And perhaps most important, young people can have at their fingertips the tools they need to become productive global citizens, using a platform that has already been embraced by universities, businesses and governments around the world.
