What is Office 365 Education?

Office 365 Education is a free collection of services that allows you to collaborate and share your work.
Microsoft Office 365 Education

It has been designed to help students and teachers work together and includes Office Online (Word, PowerPoint, Excel and OneNote), 1TB of OneDrive storage, Yammer and SharePoint sites.

Office 365 is targeted at the needs of education so staff and students will find it very familiar. It works with existing Office 2010 and even Office 2007 applications, and the web-based Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote apps use the same user-interface as their Office 2013 equivalents.

Office 365 integrates Exchange-based email, scheduling and contacts management, SharePoint for intranet-based collaboration, and instant messaging and voice and video conferencing and chat using Microsoft Lync. It also provides access to Microsoft’s Office Web Apps; streamlined online versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote that can be used to view, create and edit documents.
