Kentucky Department of Education
announced today that it is
moving to live@edu, the cloud-based education system from Microsoft. This is
Microsoft’s largest deployment to cloud services, involving over 700,000
students, faculty, and staff and saving Kentucky $6.3 million.
What is live@edu?
Live@edu offers educational
institutions free hosted email, calendars, document sharing, instant messaging,
video chat, and more. Students can familiarize themselves with Microsoft tools
that they are likely to use in the workplace. Institutions can be
confident that live@edu will help keep the information it stores in the cloud
safe and private.
