Microsoft has announced their plan to offer Office 365 software to students with up to six months of free access.  Office 365 is a cloud-based software suite originally launched back  in 2011.

If a student has a qualifying .edu e-mail address, Microsoft is offering to let them try Office 365 University for three months as well as 20GB of SkyDrive storage for free.  These qualifying students can receive another three months free just by sharing the offer on Facebook.

Microsoft is hoping to entice students with Office 365 and SkyDrive’s cloud storage with a more touch-friendly design for tablets and touch-screen laptops.  The idea is to get these students to purchase the product by starting them out on a free period.

Microsoft’s Office 365 University comes with word processing, spreadsheets, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, and Access all for $79.99.  It also comes with 20GB of online storage through SkyDrive and 60 minutes of Skype calls per month.

Microsoft’s office 365 is already gaining traction in the business market as it recently launched its online version.  By offering this free trial, Microsoft Office 365’s presence in the education sector should show significant growth.
