Case study



City implements Live@edu to increase classroom effectiveness and teach students to work as a team



“We now have one seamless, unified system using a single email domain for the entire education sector in Ho Chi Minh City. We are teaching students to work in a team environment and we are reducing the burden on our teachers. ”

Mr. Huynh Kim Sen, Director of ICT and Education Programs Dept., Ho Chi Minh City Department of Education & Training (HCM DOET)

Ho Chi Minh City Department of Education and Training (HCM DOET) wanted to provide an efficient communication and collaboration platform to enhance student learning. The Department felt they weren’t using technology effectively and wanted to better use IT to create an environment for students to communicate and exchange knowledge.


HCM DOET consists of more than 1,500 secondary schools and high schools with over 1.5 million students. They deployed Microsoft Live@edu to more than 350 schools last year and trained over 500 teachers who then returned to their schools and passed on the knowledge to their peers.


HCM DOET now has a single unified communication system throughout the education sector in Ho Chi Minh City. They were also able to reduce the burden on teachers with a fast, easy-to-use email service that provides ample storage and collaboration tools. The IT staff can also take advantage of minimum administration and maintenance needs for the Live@edu system.

Sales & Licensing Update

Dear all,

We are pleased and excited to share the enhancements coming to our subscription licensing programs October 1st and beyond.

Enhanced Student Option – Driving Deployment of Education Desktop and Growing Student Enthusiasts

First, we’re enhancing the Student Option offering by providing free electronic software distribution and expanding the student price levels offered through EES.

These updates make Student Option a far more cost effective way for value customers to license Microsoft products for use by your students on a personally owned device or an institution-owned device assigned for a student’s exclusive use.

· Free ESD Available October 1, 2011. Offering free electronic software download reduces the administrative burden of Student Option for value customers and provides a flexible, no cost method for recording, verifying, and distributing software to qualifying students. The cost and logistics of physical distribution has been raised as a sales barrier for Student Option in numerous markets. We have partnered with e-academy to automate all aspects of the software distribution process and provide toll-free, multi-lingual phone and email technical support to all student end users. Free electronic download is available to all Student Option customers whether you are licensing through EES, the OVS-ES agreement, or the School enrollment.

· Effective October 1, 2011. In addition, we are expanding the volume discount for Student Option available to large customers. EES (1,000+ FTE) customers can now receive greater savings through expanded price levels (A-D) based on the number of students they enroll. Customers that have leveraged Student Option departmentally will now have visibility of the pricing benefit by expanding to organization wide coverage.



Expanding the Server Platform Licensing Option (ESP-A) – Driving server units and growing student share

Equally exciting is the evolution of the Enrollment for Server Platform (ESP-A) into a programmatic offering. Until now, ESPA has been offered only through the business desk on a case by case basis. The success of this offering in a number of markets around the world indicated a need to expand the program, which we are doing with this year’s agreement refresh.

The Server Platform Licensing Option has been incorporated into the October EES enrollment, making it programmatically available to our managed customers. With this update, we can team with our Partners and proactively offer this simplified server licensing option to all customers with at least 1,000 FTE. Customers that will benefit most from the flexibility of unlimited deployments of our server technology are large customers with a decentralized environment who will be able to lower their total cost of ownership.

Look for refreshed licensing and sales materials to support this server platform licensing option coming in Q2. In the meantime, review a program overview and case studies at http://esp.
