About Microsoft Azure Dev Tools for Teaching

The College of Engineering at Northeastern University is a participant in Microsoft’s Azure Dev Tools for Teaching program. (This program was formerly called Imagine, and before that Dreamspark.)

Through the COE Azure Dev Tools for Teaching web store, COE students, faculty, and staff can download free Microsoft software for academic, non-commercial use on your personal computer.

Available software presently includes:

Operating systems
MS Windows and Windows Server (several versions)
Developer tools
Visual Studio, ASP.NET, XNA Game Studio
MS Project, Visio, One Note
MS SQL server, Exchange Server, Hyper-V Server

Please log in to the COE Azure Dev Tools for Teaching store to see the full list of nearly 200 available packages. Azure Dev Tools for Teaching is a Microsoft promotional program and MS, not COE, chooses which packages to offer and sets the licensing terms. Sorry, MS Office is NOT included. Students can get MS Office here.
