Date:9/16/2009

REDMOND, Wash., Sept. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- It's the start of the school year, and there are already empty seats in classrooms and lecture halls because of unfortunate outbreaks of the H1N1 flu virus. Today, Microsoft Corp. is furthering its commitment to the U.S. Department of Education and schools and universities across the nation by offering a free technology resource that will help educators stay connected with their students and continue the learning process if they are forced to stay home from school or miss class. Microsoft Office Live Workspace allows educators to create an online class workspace where they can share assignments, handouts and manage collaborative group projects so that students can access course work virtually anytime and anywhere with just an Internet connection. This tool and other H1N1 resources are available today at http://www.microsoft.com/education/h1n1.

"We can all work to keep ourselves healthy now by practicing prevention, close monitoring and common sense," said Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education. "We know that some students may be affected by H1N1, and our top priority is making sure that they have a way to get well, stay well and to keep learning. We're providing a menu of strategies for educators to help ensure that the learning process will continue."

Microsoft's H1N1 resources for educators include access to Office Live Workspace, how-to videos for training and to see how other educators are using the software in the classroom, tips to spur collaboration, and other free and simple technologies to make classroom content more engaging online.
