Interface Magazine recently published an article on Napier Girls High School adopting Office365 for Education.
The reason behind the school taking up the offer was to take advantage of the collaboration and communication services between students and staff. Principal Mary Nixon talked in the article about how her current staff are so familiar with their current Exchange environment that they prefered to work with this.
"The school could do this through migrating our mailboxes onto Exchange Online. The Microsoft Office 2010 suite allows students and staff to produce quality work. Office Web Apps is a key enabler for managed, anywhere, anytime access to content. We are keen to explore the use of Microsoft Lync and its ability to provide true unified communications including phones. This could streamline our office processes and procedures".
