Office for Students and Educators

Every suite of Office includes:

  • Microsoft Word for all student and teacher word processing needs
  • Microsoft Excel for spreadsheets
  • Microsoft PowerPoint for presentations
  • Microsoft OneNote for note taking, including in recent editions, audio and video notes, as well as drawing

In addition, all recent versions have a number of features that can aid in the education process, including connecting to the cloud and allowing for collaboration with peers.

Installation and Licensing

All Microsoft student suites below allow for one installation on one computer. The Office suite will remain active indefinitely and does not require a renewed subscription.

The most recent edition designed for student use is Office 2016. This suite involves all the expected programs listed above and comes with many useful features, including:

  • Greater cloud integration to allow for easier saving of files directly from desktop
  • A Tell Me function that makes searching for features in the programs easier and more efficient

Aside from a few features missing, such as the Tell Me function that allows for easier searching of tasks in the ribbon within documents, Office 2016 for Mac has all the same programs as well as all the key collaborative and cloud-based features.

Of crucial importance is the far more similar look the Mac edition has to the PC edition, allowing for the first time, easy transition between the two. For students new to Apple products, this allows for immediate comprehension and intuitive use from the first moment.

For those interested in a solid and dependable edition of Office for PC, but who do not care for the new features, Office 2013 Home and Student remains available and an excellent option.

  • New slide designs for PowerPoint
  • Suite integration with communication programs like Skype and Yammer to allow for more student-to-student discussions and collaboration
