ms studentWith cloud computing being a mainstay productivity solution for many of us these days, Microsoft has every intention to attract more students to jump over to their subscription-based Office 365 software, and what better way to do so than to put up a brand new promotion which will offer them up to half a year’s worth of free access? Yes sir, for $79.99, Office 365 University will come with a four-year, cloud-based subscription to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, and Access, in addition to 20GB of online storage over SkyDrive, not to mention 60 minutes of Skype calls each month.

Those who are in possession of a .edu email address are able to gain from three months of free access to Office 365 University, but for folks who decide to spread the word by sharing the offer on Facebook after entering an email address on www.officeforstudents.com, they will benefit from an additional three months of free access, now how about that? If you are a student, do these sweeteners help you make the jump if you were in two minds about it before?
