Freebee Friday: Office on the Cheap
Tired of licensing Office from Microsoft for every computer on the campus? There’s a different way to keep everyone on the same page, and it’s free. The Microsoft Office 365 cloud suite of programs can be used by schools for free. It’s all online so there’s no software to load and update and it includes everything from Word, Excel and PowerPoint to Lync and SharePoint online. The best part is that it includes Exchange Online and all the emails will be stored securely on Microsoft’s network. Several school districts use Office 365 and save tens of thousands of dollars a year.
