What is Microsoft Azure Dev Tools for Teaching?
Azure Dev Tools for Teaching (previously known as Microsoft Imagine Standard and Premium) is a subscription-based offering for accredited schools and departments providing access to tools commonly used in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) programmes. It provides professional developer and designer tools, software and services from Microsoft for your faculty and students. It includes our latest technologies and cloud services to inspire and excite students. And, it provides educators with a diverse set of resources to ensure that their classrooms challenge, engage and motivate students in new ways. This programme has the following goals:
- Provide access to our software and platforms: Educators and students get access to our products and technologies, giving them choices for current and future educational opportunities.
- Deliver outstanding value: These subscription-based memberships provide convenient per-user licence management, removing the complexity of licences across multiple environments. Software that is acquired through your Azure Dev Tools for Teaching subscription is only for instructional and research purposes; you can’t use it to run the infrastructure of a department.
