Sure, Microsoft Office 365 is the same as Microsoft Office for Desktop! In essence that is true, however, the portability of Microsoft Office 365 is what makes it special. Every student can now access Microsoft Office apps like Word, PowerPoint and Excel from home using their school subscription. In some cases even download and install copies of Microsoft Office for desktop (e.g. Office 2016). Real time collaboration and ease of access are the features that make Microsoft Office Online a real game changer for the classroom.
