Hi,

would anyone be able to confirm that our Office 365 A1 Plus for faculty licenses mean we can install Office 365 on our institute devices please? At the moment we've been deploying Office 2019 Pro Plus, but are thinking of deploying 365 instead.

many thanks,

Tom

Hi @tommalt

See here

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/academic/compare-office-365-education-plans?activetab=...

A1 does not contain the desktop versions of Office - only the web versions. You would need to get A3 or A5 if you wanted the desktop versions

Hope that answers your question

Hi @Christopher Hoard 

 

thanks for that - we've got A1 Plus, which according to this page: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/servicedescriptions/office-365-platform-service-descripti...

 

Gives us this:

Some schools are eligible for Education Plus, which includes Office 365 ProPlus, and allows students, faculty and staff to install the latest version of Office on up to five PC or Mac computers and on other mobile devices, including Windows tablets and the iPad. Schools qualify for Office 365 Education Plus when they license Office institution-wide for faculty and staff through Enrollment for Education Solutions, Open Value Subscription Education Solutions, or a school contract. 

 

What isn't clear is if this is for our institute devices, their personal devices or a mix of both...

 

thanks a lot,

Sure. I think so because the qualification criteria is outlined here

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/education/deploy/office-365-education-self-sign-up

After the school qualifies, all active full-time or part-time students, faculty, and staff are eligible and can get the plan directly from Microsoft at Office 365 Education if they meet all three of the following requirements:

1. They have a school-specific email address provided by the school (for example, sara@contoso.edu) that can receive external email.
2. They are of legal age to sign up for an online offer individually (13 years old).
3. They have Internet access.

There is no specification of the type of device. This is consistent with the business plans which allows this mix.

Hi @Christopher Hoard ,

I have a question, I am in a school where there are more than 1000 children, where we need an educational office 365. We made the first registration and they gave us the free A1, but until September, after that trial period ... should I pay? Is there a way to have it for free for life? I must also validate my institution, how do I do it? ? and what is necessary?

A thousand apologies for the doubts, but I did not find much information related to the process.

Hi @agustinbracamonte

Ok, think I can answer this

A1 is Free. A3 and A5 cost. A1 Plus, where Office Pro Plus is included is free for specific qualifying schools - but you have qualify and validate to get it free.

---
Schools qualify for Office 365 A1 Plus when they license Office institution-wide for faculty and staff through Enrollment for Education Solutions, Open Value Subscription Education Solutions, Cloud Solution Provider (CSP), or a school contract. After the school qualifies, all active full-time or part-time students, faculty, and staff are eligible and can get the plan directly from Microsoft at Office 365 Education if they meet all three of the following requirements:

1. They have a school-specific email address provided by the school (for example, sara@contoso.edu) that can receive external email.
2. They are of legal age to sign up for an online offer individually (13 years old).
3. They have Internet access.

Most answers are in this document

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/education/deploy/office-365-education-self-sign-up

I don't know the exact process for validation. I assume that is between Microsoft and you. I would personally reach out to your MS rep, or your provider.

We have Office A1 plus for faculty and students. The plus part is the inclusion of Office 365.

I have the on-prem deployment setup of Office 365 to all domain computers so it ties in with the staff and students licence to install Office 365 to their own computers. On a side note, the install is not as you would for 2019 and it is locked into the users 365 accounts when they sign into a computes and yes they can hot desk. I have up to 50 pupils using the IT suite computers with no issues. Please note that the deployment of Office 365 does take a bit of setting up to get it right and can be totally controlled from GPO. Been using it this way for 3 years now.

@agustinbracamonte  Hi, I dont see a reply so let me share my experience. Our trial ran out and payment was needed which was not an option as the cost was very high as we wanted to give these to year 10/11 maybe 470 boys at no cost.

Our option was to purchase a plan from a re-seller.

We ended up with 1000 accounts such as user1@ourdomain.com and each account has there own password and full access.

We could choose 1, 3, 5 or 10 years membership.

We went for the 3 years as after they leave school they really do not need it with a school/college domain.

We purchased it from a re-seller for about £300 cant remember the exact cost.

I used lizosoft.com but your welcome to shop about infact you may be able to purchase from MS themselves.

Dave if your a school with a .edu domain you can request it for free but there are limitations.

If you dont have a .edu domain you can purchase how many accounts you need from an Authorised Microsoft partner re-seller such as lizosoft.com or https://cloudmarket.com to name a few

I have the same situation. could you tell me about your experience regarding the licensing process of Office 365 A1 for education. how did you manage it? do you extend the trial period or have a long-term license. how much the fees after the expiration of free trial.
I would appreciate your response. thank you in advance.
