It’s the start of the school year, and there are already empty seats in classrooms and lecture halls because of unfortunate outbreaks of the H1N1 flu virus. Microsoft Corp. is offering a free technology resource that will help educators stay connected with their students and continue the learning process if they are forced to stay home from school or miss class. Microsoft Office Live Workspace allows educators to create an online class workspace where they can share assignments, handouts and manage collaborative group projects so that students can access course work virtually anytime and anywhere with just an Internet connection. This tool and other H1N1 resources are available today at http://www.microsoft.com/education/h1n1.
Microsoft’s H1N1 resources for educators include access to Office Live Workspace, how-to videos for training and to see how other educators are using the software in the classroom, tips to spur collaboration, and other free and simple technologies.
