Online streaming to provide productivity software free to UWindsor students will give them tools to handle their work like professionals, says the assistant director of Information Technology Services.
His department has launched streaming for Microsoft Office, including:
- the word processing application Word;
- the spreadsheet Excel;
- presentation package PowerPoint;
- digital note-taking application OneNote; and
- the collaboration tool Skype for Business.
“These are the industry standard programs,” says Steve Banyai. “We are very happy to make them available to our students for free.”
Students currently enrolled are able to download the software and install it on up to five devices. Once they graduate or are no longer enrolled in classes, the software will deactivate.
