What is Microsoft Azure Dev Tools for Teaching?
Azure Dev Tools for Teaching (previously known as Microsoft Imagine Standard and Premium) is a subscription-based offering for accredited schools and departments providing access to tools commonly used in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs. It provides professional developer and designer tools, software, and services from Microsoft to your faculty and students. It includes our latest technologies and cloud services to inspire and excite students. And, it provides educators a diverse set of resources to ensure their classrooms challenge, engage, and motivate students in new ways.
This program has the following goals:
- Provide access to our software and platforms: Educators and students get access to our products and technologies, giving them choices for current and future educational opportunities.
- Deliver outstanding value: These subscription-based memberships provide convenient per-user license management, removing the complexity of licenses across multiple environments.
Software that is acquired through your Azure Dev Tools for Teaching subscription is only for instructional and research purposes; you can’t use it to run the infrastructure of a department.
How do we distribute products to our students?
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.
