The Illinois Learning Technology Purchase Program (ILTPP) is excited to announce recent changes to our ongoing Enrollment for Education Solutions (EES) Microsoft contract. These changes will provide ready-to-use curriculum materials via the robust Microsoft Imagine Academy.
In an effort to provide access to the top-quality technology teaching materials, Microsoft has made Microsoft Imagine Academy FREE to all participants of ILTPP’s EES contract. Imagine Academy’s curricular materials cover a wide range of subjects, including computer and data science to IT infrastructure and productivity.
In the past, Imagine Academy was offered to schools looking to get Level B pricing on their EES contract. Now, if you purchase Microsoft 365 for Education A3 in addition to one unit of Azure Prepayment, you will still receive Level B pricing. Azure Prepayment continues to provide access to the Azure port, which in turn can help you set-up virtual servers, server backups, virtual desktops, and more.
If you are new to Azure and looking for some training, then you can learn more about Azure’s fundamentals and core concepts here. Those looking for education-specific training can also participate in Microsoft’s “Getting Started with Azure for Education” course.
Current Imagine Academy users should expect no changes in terms of logging in and accessing their existing resources. Once a new EES contract is signed, new users will receive a welcome letter with instructions for setting up an account and logging in for the first time. You can find more information on this process and answers to a variety of other program-related questions here.
