Get access to your documents anywhere you have internet! Office Web Apps offer great learning and collaboration opportunities that can help you better serve your students. You'll be able to edit, store, and share class documents online, empower students to get assignments done from anywhere, build collaboration and work group skills, and inspire creativity with familiar tools that everyone can access.
Share, instruct, and learn virtually anywhere
Office Web Apps lets you and your students work from virtually anywhere to get classroom learning done. They extend your Microsoft Office experience to the web browser, letting you and your students work with documents online and use a group web site (such as Windows Live® SkyDrive™) to store everything. If you have Microsoft Office on computers in your classroom, the online documents will integrate seamlessly. If you do not have Office or if your students do not have it at home, they can work directly online to keep up with their work.
Office Web Apps is your collaborative tool for learning:
- Access assignments 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from nearly any computer (and some mobile devices)
- Save time by ensuring that your files will always be available. No more copying files to a USB stick or carrying around heavy paper files.
- Control document versions and editing privileges, as needed.

- No need to learn new technology! You and your students already know how to use Office.
