I received this query by email from an international colleague:
“I heard that MS UK Education team created a DVD with all free products/links to Microsoft web sites that are potentially beneficial to teachers and students, and that you shared this with your education audiences. Can you point me to the folder where the DVD content is?”
And after I answered it, I then thought I should share the answer, because if somebody in Latvia is interested, it’ll probably be interesting to somebody in Luton too, given the state of education ICT budgets.
- Yes, we did create a DVD for BETT two years ago, but that will be quite out of date. However, you can still get to the content at:
For more up-to-date information, there are some key web pages listing free resources

- Two specifically useful posts are the ones which contain an education focused list of free downloads etc:
- And finally, there’s a blog post from the BlogMS team that has a fuller list of free Microsoft stuff. This isn’t education specific, and mainly useful for technical people rather than educationalists, but it’s a good list:
Does that help anybody else too?
