Microsoft education blog
  

Microsoft has developed technology, tools, programmes and solutions to help address education challenges while improving teaching and learning opportunities. Working with our Partners, Microsoft delivers technology solutions and services that improve both student achievements and administrative processes. We also work with educators, educational organisations and industry partners to expand the world of learning, through technology programmes such as Partners in Learning and the Innovative Teachers Network.

School
Microsoft technologies and solutions are saving time and helping to raise standards in schools across the world. With the Education Community and Innovative Teachers Programme, teachers can collaborate and share ideas to ease workloads and solve problems.

Further Education
Information and learning technology (ILT) provides greater flexibility for both learners and educators. It widens the choice for learners of when and where they learn, and enables educators to use more engaging teaching techniques. Find out how Microsoft's range of ILT solutions can help your college improve its performance to develop lifelong learning.

Connect with your students and alumni using email, instant messaging and collaborative services that they already know and love. Microsoft can provide your institution with free email accounts featuring a custom domain name selected by your institution. The Microsoft Live @ edu programme provides higher and further education institutions with a set of free hosted communication services for students, alumni and applicants.

Windows Hied Conference 2009 Edition

This is organized by a committee from the Windows HIED listsrv hosted by Stanford University and has a focus on NOT being a sales event, rather a chance for administrators in higher education to interface directly with product teams in Redmond and listen in on technical presentations regarding infrastructure focused solutions.

Conference Goals

As has always been the case for this event, it is NOT a sales or marketing event. Attendees generally have deep technical background in both Microsoft as well as UNIX/Linux operating systems. Presentation responsibilities are being split by Microsoft and customer attendees and focus the following primary goals:
  • Provide highly relevant product and solution discussion as well as tips and tricks for better evaluating, deploying, integrating, administering, supporting and simplifying Microsoft solutions in the higher education environment
  • Illicit product input and feedback to ensure product teams understand the needs of the HED customer base.
  • Learn of unique challenges and successes of Microsoft product deployment from customer presentation sessions.
  • Provide an informal venue to discuss additional issues and topics
  • Increase the trust and confidence of customer attendees in deploying and supporting Microsoft solutions
  • Provide Microsoft product teams an opportunity to talk to a focused and strategic group of knowledgeable HED customers
