Microsoft Dreamspark

I got an invite from the Open University’s MCT department to try¬†DreamSpark:

DreamSpark is a Microsoft Program that supports technical education by providing access to Microsoft software for learning, teaching and research purposes.

DreamSpark is simple: it’s all about giving students Microsoft professional-level developer and designer tools at no cost so that students can chase their dreams and create the next big breakthrough in technology – or just get a head start on their career.

Microsoft’s DreamSpark Website.

Its been quite useful. So far, I’ve tried Windows 8 and moved to a more recent version of Visual Studio. I recommend it, certainly if your University has an academic membership its worth asking for access because there is a significantly larger amount of software available.

    Hi there,

    I’m also with the OU, currently studying M250. Do you have an OU contact from whom you received the invite for entry to the DreamSpark Premium scheme.

    Regards,

    Scott.
