Office is one of the most widely used programs for schools around the world, and Microsoft has recently updated Office 365 to deliver the best possible Office experience for everyone. Microsoft has recently made it easier for teachers to get a copy of Office from their school, and on Tuesday rolled out the plans to help teachers get Office.
By introducing a plan to give school teachers Office, this means that teachers will be able to use Office on their mobile devices, tablets, phones, and home computers. This means they can work on school projects at home, from the road, grade papers when not in the classroom, and keep up to date on the latest and greatest in Office with their students as the focus.
Teacher’s Office Subscription Details
In this plan, Microsoft is allowing any teacher to get a copy of Office, when using a school-provided emai address. This is only available in the US for now, and Microsoft has setup a few different web sites to both check eligibility and to signup for Office. This free Office software means that teachers can get it for themselves as well as the classroom.
With the Office program rollout, Microsoft is giving teachers the latest versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Access, and Publisher. They are also allowing teachers to install Office on up to five Macs or PCs if they have that many. It will also work on their tablets, iPad’s, iPhones, and Android devices. Included will be 1TB of OneDrive storage and Office Online as well.
Win Win For Teachers
With this promotion, teachers only stand to gain with this from Microsoft. This will put Office in the hands of teachers, and save them from having to spend their money on it, with a school tool. By going to office.com/teachers, teachers can see if they are able to get it, download it on their systems, and use Office to keep track with it.
Microsoft is helping teachers once again with this type of promotion, and spreading the word of Office 365 at the same time. Office 365 is being used in schools around the world, and is going against Google in the classroom as well. All of these promotions should help it, as Office is more widely used for students and teachers than Google Docs, and now for free.
Teachers win with this Microsoft promo. Congrats to Microsoft for doing this for teachers.
