Microsoft Office Home & Student includes a full package of Microsoft-based applications with Word, PowerPoint, Excel and One Note. It also includes 15 gigabytes of cloud storage synced to a OneDrive account and can be accessed online from any device with an Internet connection.
Office Home & Student allows college and varsity students all the privileges of a full Office 365 package at a one-time purchase fee, as of 2015. This package gives users the ability and necessary resources to publish and edit documents, including easy and convenient note-taking. Students can create impressive PowerPoint presentations using the PowerPoint application which is an industry standard application tool.
This Microsoft Office Home & Student is a Windows-based system application, but it is open-ended and works seamlessly across all operating systems and platforms on virtually any machine or device.
With its large online cloud storage capacity, the cloud-based application package allows students to secure their documents online and access them easily at any given time. This package also offers a specific option for teachers.
Another package similar to this is the Office 365 Education for Students, which is also available to students enrolled in qualified schools. A significant advantage of using Microsoft Office Home & Student is that it allows for real-time sync capabilities online; hence, one can always pick up from a different device and continue his work.
