Microsoft introduces Office 365 for Education

Microsoft is bringing its cloud-based productivity suite to students and teachers with the launch of its Office 365 for Education.

The suite — which includes Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, as well as collaboration and communication services including Lync, SharePoint and Exchange — is being offered free to students, teachers and faculty.

Gonzaga University, Dartmouth College and Cornell University are among schools adopting Office 365, according to Microsoft’s announcement.

In the year since it launched, several versions of Office 365 have been released, including those designed specifically for small businesses, midsized businesses and enterprise, government, and now, education.
