While Microsoft Office is available for PCs and tablets across most platforms, many students who need to use it have issues with cost or broadband restraints, writes Margo Day, Microsoft Vice President, U.S. Education. Microsoft’s new Student Advantage benefit can eliminate both barriers, she says.
If your school licenses Microsoft Office for faculty and staff, students get the suite of programs at no additional cost.
Student Advantage elevates Microsoft Office 365 Education plan A2, which already provides Web-based services to schools for email, calendaring, Web conferencing, online document editing, storage and sharing for free.
