Communicate and learn together virtually anywhere, anytime

Stay connected anytime.
Give students and staff access to email, calendars, instant messaging (IM), video chat, mobile email, and more—across PC, phone, and browser—with Microsoft Office 365 in the cloud or Microsoft Lync Server 2010 on-premises.

Learn together anywhere.
Complete assignments, create presentations, and develop projects from just about anywhere with an Internet connection. With Microsoft Office Web Apps, students and teachers can post or create documents online, work with others, share ideas, and make edits—all from a web browser.

Go the distance with e-learning.
Power distance and e-learning with Microsoft communication solutions—Office 365 and Lync Server. Students and faculty can learn together via audio, web, and video conferencing based on the latest Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technologies.

Communicate in more ways.
Keep students, teachers, and faculty connected with voice, video, chat, broadcasting, and sharing—in real time or on demand. With Lync, a conversation can start in IM, switch to voice, then to video, and then to app sharing—all within the same client experience.

Help save time and costs.
Take it to the cloud, and help save time and costs with Office 365, which can make it easy to communicate and learn together, virtually anywhere. And Office 365 can provide lower cost, highly secure, and easy-to-manage cloud services to your students, staff, and faculty.

Replace old phone systems.
Replace legacy private branch exchange (PBX) systems with a cost-effective unified communications platform that's easy to deploy and maintain. Lync can turn every communication into an engaging interaction.
