Microsoft Tools for classroom management

Office 365

Work virtually anywhere
Your personal settings, documents and class files can be accessed and shared across devices.
Collaborate freely
Create shared workspaces with customisable security settings for different teams in your institution.
Keep things private
Your data belongs to you. Microsoft does not scan emails or documents for advertising purposes.
Student Advantage
Schools and universities that licence Office 365 ProPlus or Office Professional Plus for staff and faculty can now also provide access to Office 365 ProPlus for students—at no additional cost.
