Information technology giant, Microsoft, has launched Edu-Cloud, a cloud computing-based offering that will enhance digital learning and teaching in schools and higher education institutions, in India. “Today’s students are digital natives. At Microsoft, we help them imagine the future and realise it. With the help of cloud computing, they create, deliver and manage content from any device, anywhere, anytime, making learning easy and fun,” Microsoft India chairman, Bhaskar Pramanik, told mediapersons here.

Stating that Microsoft was very passionate about education and that it had invested over Rs 670 crore in various education initiatives in the last one decade, touching 50 million people in 20 states in the country, Pramanik said Microsoft wanted to partner Indian schools and colleges in their digital transformation journey.
