Microsoft 365 Available on Cloud to Educators

Free software gives teachers more tools to use in the classroom.

Microsoft announced it will offer Office 365 free to educators through cloud computing. The software allows teachers to build web pages for their courses, communicate with students, teach lessons virtually, and manage documents.

Anthony Salcito, vice president of worldwide education for Microsoft, says the product is available to schools at no cost because of the tremendous success of Office 365 with businesses.

“It enables us to provide the solutions to schools, but is already supported by industry [clients],” Salcito said in an interview at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference.

Office 365 gives schools access to Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Lync Online and Office Web Apps at no cost. Sign up HERE.
