REVIEW OF WEBINAR: HOW STUDENTS CAN BENEFIT FROM MICROSOFT IN EDUCATION
The webinar on “How Students Can Benefit From Microsoft In Education” was organized by Asian College of Higher Studies on May 20, 2020. The resource person was Mr. Deependra Bajracharya, the Business Development Manager of Microsoft Operations Pte. Ltd.
Although, we all use different products of Microsoft in our daily life, we are not all aware about the plans, platforms and events provided by Microsoft. I think this session gave us the vision of how we could use Microsoft products to build a path to our career. He told us about the special plans for students such as Office 365 for Education where we can get free subscription of Microsoft office tools (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook) and services (OneDrive, Team, Sway, etc.), learning platform where students can practice Machine Learning, AI, and SQL Database projects in real time and Microsoft Startup plan. We also got to know about Microsoft Learn Student Ambassadors and also the competitive event, Imagine Cup where students can submit their project ideas and compete with the students from around the world. He also gave us the brief overview on how we can use the products and services online. He also cleared the doubts of the students in the QA (Question/Answer) part of session. Overall, this session was very informative and interactive. Attending this webinar was really beneficial.
Lastly, I would like to express my gratitude to the college administration for organizing the webinars to help students gain knowledge about different fields and platforms in IT and choose the right path for their career even in this pandemic situation. Also, I want to thank Mr. Deependra Bajracharya for providing us the information about Microsoft products and services and how we students can get the most from it.
