Microsoft Azure Dev Tools for Teaching (formerly Microsoft Imagine)

Note: If you are looking for Microsoft Imagine Academy (free training) please visit the Microsoft Imagine Academy page.

Microsoft Azure Dev Tools for Teaching formerly known as Microsoft Imagine, Microsoft Azure Dev Tools for Teaching puts professional developer tools—including Project, Visio, and Visual Studio Enterprise—in the hands of students, faculty, and staff at no cost. These titles allow users to create cross-platform apps, manage application lifecycles, create modern reports with actionable insights, and more. Students can use the tools to develop and create apps, games, and websites.

La Trobe University extends students the right to use select Microsoft software for campus-related purposes at home.

The software may be used only while the user is an eligible student of La Trobe University and the Campus Agreement is valid. The software must be removed from personal computers when you are no longer a student of the University or when the Agreement expires.

Students are not licensed to use the software at home for personal purposes. Students do not own the licence, rather they are leasing the license from La Trobe University for the term of the Agreement.
