Being a student is hard enough on its own. But fear not, because Microsoft has an edition of Office for students that has you covered 100%. Student users can now enjoy programs that make learning an easier experience by placing all the tools that you need to succeed at your literal fingertips. Microsoft Office Home and Student has tons of features and here is how you, as a student, can use them to make learning more enjoyable and less stressful:
Office Home and Student includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote.
Group Projects and Collaboration
Microsoft Office Home and Student makes working together in groups so much simpler with features like Track Changes and Co-authoring. Track Changes is a way for Microsoft Word to keep track of proposed changes anyone makes to a document. It basically keeps the original information but also gives you the option to implement new amendments if you choose to. Co-authoring allows multiple users to edit a document at the same time. Each person could have the same document open on their device and make changes which everyone else can see it in real time. Feedback, corrections and suggestions can be made instantly without wasting time. That means more time spent being productive. It also doesn’t matter what device each person is using. Since all work can be saved on OneDrive, its protection is guaranteed and you don’t need to worry about things like losing precious work because someone's hard drive crashed.
Trying to keep up with the demands of a student's life is a difficult task. Microsoft Office for Students now makes it a little bit easier to still keep up to date with lesson material, lectures notes, etc. Now, using OneNote, entire notebooks can be shared between classmates. There is no risk of your notebook being lost, stolen or damaged in any way because it all digitally stored on the cloud. Your work is completely safe and will always be available to you wherever you are.
Now you can do research right in your Office document without needing to switch to another program or browser. All you need to do is highlight a word or phrase and select the Smart Lookup option. It immediately runs a Bing-powered search and shows all the information right there in your document which you can use however you choose to.
Bibliographies and References
Word 2016 will automatically create your bibliographies and references as you work. All citations in your work is linked to the source and be properly formatted in all major approved formats so that you won't have to do it yourself. Full details for every citation can be stored so that your information can be fully verified with credible sources and this includes even uncited works that were still used to compile your document.
