Starting on December 1st, Universities that license Office Education for their faculty and staff can offer students Office 365 ProPlus for free.
I’m coming to the end of my trial period with Microsoft Office 2013. Over the weeks it has been a reasonably solid experience with one or two quirks causing me no end of frustration. But do I want to upgrade? Do I want to pay for a subscription or full purchase or would I prefer to stick with Microsoft Office 2010, a suite that I’ve been using successfully for several years now? Indeed, should I even think of abandoning Microsoft in favour of an open source alternative?
icrosoft announced this week that it’s expanding its Office 365 University free trial to 3 free months, with 3 further months offered to students who share the offer on Facebook. In addition, students can get 20GB of additional SkyDrive storage. The free trial is available to enrolled full- and part-time university and college students, and faculty and staff in accredited institutions.
I have always believed that Excel is one of the most powerful software tools out there. It’s not just the fact that it’s spreadsheet software. No, Microsoft Excel 2013 simply has an awesome collection of built-in tools and features. Much of the power really lies behind the formulas and rules that you can write to manipulate data and information automatically, regardless of what data you insert. Here I show you how powerful formulas and conditional formatting can be, with three pretty useful examples.
