Posted by pratyushkp
Nothing is left untouched by technology these days including the interaction between the students and teachers. Microsoft with its Live@edu has opened up new possibilities for the Delhi Public School students by enabling them to communicate and collaborate online both with their classmates and with teachers. This is being enabled by Microsoft Live@edu suite of online and collaboration tools including Microsoft Outlook Live (that will offer students an e-mail id that they can keep after they pass out of school), Microsoft Office Live Workspace (where students can store, access, and share documents and files online) and Microsoft SkyDrive (where students can store heavy files and projects online).
The leading school’s authorities are confident that this interaction would make the school experience more enjoyable for its 5000 students and faculty members.Microsoft is all set to regularly update and add to Live@edu services to help schools expand the set of services offered to students and alumni. Microsoft India Director (Marketing and Strategy) Tarun Malik said, ““Since it is a cloud based offering, DPS will also be able to save on maintenance costs and reduce the time spent in maintaining e-mail systems for students and alumni,”
