I have posted about Microsoft Office live in the past. This allows you to create / Edit and print your office documents in the Cloud. It can be used with Office or on its own.
It is great when anyone has different version of Office and need to work together. If you running Office 2003 at home and your School or Office is running 2007 or 2010 – why not use Office live. You get Storage (Skydrive 25G) – Word, Excel, Powerpoint, OneNote to use and share as any document can be shared with others online. This becomes a great tool when multiple people are working on a project!
All you need is a Windows live ID – Hotmail, LIVE, MSN etc…
There are also teacher guides for Bing, Windows Live Movie Maker, and other free tools. In addition, there’s a lesson plans database.
Office Web Apps are available free through Windows Live SkyDrive. All you need is a Windows Live ID, which you may already have through Microsoft Hotmail, Messenger, Xbox Live, the Partners in Learning network, or other Windows Live services.
For a sneak peak at the videos offered on www.microsoft.com/education, take a look at this video about the OneNote Web App. It’s completely directed at teachers and how they can use the OneNote Web App both inside and outside the classroom.
