"The suite of products included with [email protected] and the integration capabilities such as the calendar and other virtual tools offer our students a great collaborative learning platform that will skill them up with the tools for life beyond university," said CIO Peter Nikoletatos.
The rollout will begin with email and calendaring, Office Live Workspace, and SkyDrive. Once that phase is complete Curtin will investigate the use of additional [email protected] facilities such as Live Messenger, Live Spaves, and FolderShare.
“it’s great to see such an extensive roll out of [email protected] in Australia as another university decides to deploy [email protected]," said Neil Jackson, education director at Microsoft Australia.
"This decision further cements the importance of [email protected] and the need that exists in higher education for improved email and online collaboration tools," he added.
