More Office 365 for Students, Faculty and Staff

Students will get a self-service sign-up for Office 365, and it will include Office Pro Plus for 5 Devices, Office Online and 1TB of OneDrive for Business Storage.

Requirements are that the e-mail address they sign-up With should be Associated With the School, so a little pre-configuration for the Schools IT Department. To make the School recognizeable when students enter their e-mail address at the Sign-up.

Faculty and Staff will also have boost With the same Access to Office Pro Plus as the Students received earlier. If all employees have an Office Pro Plus License, Faculty and Staff will have Access to Office Pro Plus within Office 365 aswell.

Which is an Upgrade because:

– Self-Service deployment
– 5 PC/Macs and 5 iPads

They will still need to be licensed at a cost, but for the same price you have today, they get the full advantage of Office Pro Plus delivered within Office 365.

We could also compare the License price to upgrading staff and faculty to A3 Plans, but then Students aren’t eligible for Office Pro Plus for no charge. Atleast not yet.
