  • In general, no. Students can’t sell apps and products made by using Azure Dev Tools for Teaching. However, thanks to a partnership between Azure Dev Tools for Teaching and Microsoft App Store teams, students can create games and applications to sell in the Windows Store.

  • The Education Hub Store is available in the following languages: Arabic, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.

  • No. Students don’t need an Office 365 account, but if they have access to your Active Directory account, they use the same credentials to sign in to the software. If students don’t use Active Directory, they must create a Microsoft Account (if they don’t already have one) using the same email address that you provide them.

  • As an Azure Dev Tools for Teaching subscriber, your school or institution gets access to our Education Hub Store. Your students access their cloud services in the Education Hub Store, which is in the Azure portal. Students sign in to the Azure portal with their school (or Azure Dev Tools for Teaching) credentials, open the Education Hub Store, and access the available software downloads.
