Windows Azure Active Directory for schools
I am currently working on evaluating solutions to allow staff/students to recover/reset their AD passwords via a self service web portal. This would be especially helpful for staff during the school holidays when their AD password expires which of course prevents them from accessing their Office365 email account (federated domain using ADFS).
I am keen to evaluate self-service password management in Windows Azure Active Directory Premium as per this video. However the signup process for Azure requires a credit card for verification purposes which our school does not have, and I of course do not want to use a personal card.
Does anyone know if Microsoft offer any other route for schools to signup for, and pay if required, Windows Azure services?
Many thanks in advance.
