Set up School PCs is an app used to quickly set up Windows 10 devices for the classroom and enroll your devices into a mobile device management (MDM) provider such as Intune for Education. We are excited to announce a new and easy way to deploy Office 365 via the Set Up School PCs app.
Now, Microsoft Office will be automatically included on the apps page in Set Up School PCs. Simply check a box to include it in your provisioning package and it will automatically install at the time of provisioning. Your devices will be provisioned with Office 365 ProPlus which includes cloud-connected and always up to date versions of our most valuable apps such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Teams. This version of Office is suitable for Windows 10 Pro and EDU SKUs. We’ve also automatically configured settings suitable for education environments such as provisioning Office in shared mode and blocking users from changing subscription licenses.
This is a great way to deploy Office in an environment where network bandwidth is a concern.
