Educational institutions face COVID-19

One of the main activities affected by COVID 19 have been schools. Unfortunately, many of them were not prepared to develop virtual classes.


In addition to offering Teams as a tool to attend virtual assignments. What other tools could we include in an offer to educational institutions? Especially, oriented to the development of content and inclusive educational games. What about teachers that we can offer as sources of dynamic content?


Is there a special Teams price or trial period for this kind of institution?

It delivers enterprise-grade security and compliance that is extensible and customizable to fit the needs of every school.

With Microsoft Teams, your school or institution can create collaborative classrooms, connect in professional learning communities, communicate with school staff, coordinate research across institutions or more easily facilitate student life efforts like clubs or extracurricular activities – all from a single experience in Office 365 for Education.
