Evolving from the platform Live@edu, Office 365 for Education offers a better experience for communication, collaboration, and productivity for K-12 and higher education institutions worldwide. With Office 365 for education, students are given free tools, like Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Lync Online and Office Web Apps to enhance their educational experience. You can expect the same quality you receive offline, in Microsoft Office, in the cloud as well.
Teachers can create curriculum, record lectures, and assign homework on online class sites. Therefore, with the cloud, students can access those sites to view, open, produce, edit and share their homework. With Office 365 for Education, learning goes way past the classroom. With the cloud, students can engage in “ad hoc instant messaging” or video chats to collaborate on class projects, regardless of where they’re working or on what device. They can create documents with Office Web Apps, share class notes by synchronizing OneNote notebooks, and create digital portfolios.
