Cengage Learning and Microsoft today announced the integration of Microsoft Office into Cengage Learning’s flagship MindTap platform. Beginning with business statistics and computing courses that prepare students for jobs that rely heavily on the use of business software this relationship is the first-of-its-kind to provide students with live access to Office directly within their learning platform.

In addition, Cengage Learning is one of the first higher education providers to be included in Microsoft’s third party cloud storage program for Office Online. This allows students working in Office within the MindTap platform to save their work automatically to the cloud for secure and reliable housing of coursework that is available anytime, anywhere.

“Real-world context is key to making the student learning experience more engaging and relevant. Because of the flexibility of our MindTap learning platform, we are able to seamlessly integrate Microsoft technology directly into a student’s learning path in order to give them experience using the live application,” said Jim Donohue, Chief Product Officer, Cengage Learning. “This integration will allow students to develop the key business skills needed to be competitive in today’s workforce using the actual software that they will be using once on-the-job. This live access is above and beyond what can be done with a standard simulation.”

Students using MindTap in business statistics courses can seamlessly work within Excel Online while solving and interacting with Cengage Learning problem sets for the Anderson/Sweeney/Williams series. Student work is constantly saved in the cloud, effectively operating on both PCs and Macs. Instructors can monitor student progress at any time online to reinforce the Excel skills and statistical methods that are so critical to business success.

In addition, MindTap for Computing gives students access to a platform uniquely supported with powerful applications integrated directly into the user experience, including: SAM for hands-on learning of Microsoft Office skills and Computer concepts, OfficeMix which allows for quick upload of PowerPoint created by instructor or students that have interactive assets in a recorded presentation, and OneNote. All of these applications are delivered to students in the environment that they are learning in so that they have everything at their fingertips, saving time. Additionally, making everything accessible in one place reduces student distraction and increases retention.

“At Microsoft, the work we do in education is fueled and inspired by educators with clear focus to enable students to be their best,” said Anthony Salcito, vice president of Worldwide Education, Microsoft. “We know having a rich set of tools to create and collaborate is critical both in school and in the workplace. I am excited Cengage Learning has made it possible for students to have access to Office within their courses. This will allow a deeper understanding of tools needed as student prepare to enter the professional world.”
