Skydrive Pro Vs Dropbox article - relevent to .edu? And other Office 365 Q's
SkyDrive Pro vs Dropbox - And Why is it Better? | Sharegate's Blog
Is this article relevant to education?
We have just been upgraded to office 365 and have spend way more man-hours than we can afford on trying to get to a working solution regarding ADFS, and now find they release a new version of DIRSYNC which makes all our previous work obsolete.
Anyway, I digress - what the last paragraph meant to say was we have not really had the opportunity to discover the advantages office 365 will bring us.
We are are^^^ were heavily invested in Skydrive. We also have EES Enterprise Assurance licensing for Microsoft. From my initial reading office 365 has a licening model where we pay per student. At a school with EES, where we pay by FTE of about 130, and a student base of over 1500; paying for something on a per student basis is going to result in a massive increase in licencing costs
My main gripe with office 365 vs live@edu is that MS were so helpful and communicative with assisting us with live@edu, and now that we were locked in this support has completely disappeared for us here in .au and left us stumbling.
If it wasnt for this site and @jamesbmarshall we would be 100% completely lost. Every time we had a question regarding office 365 and asked their support, they just directed us to their support webpages. These pages actually go round and round in circles.
anyway this has changed from a legitimate question into a rant, please excuse the latter.
