Microsoft Office Student and Teacher Edition 2003 is an affordable way for students and teachers to get Microsoft Office productivity tools to use at school and home.
Affordable, Full-Featured Software for Home and School
Office Student and Teacher Edition 2003 is not evaluation software. All the programs are the same full-featured versions you use at home and school.
- Take advantage of the best price for home users. Qualified students and teachers can obtain a set of four Microsoft Office programs at this discounted price.
- Use software for the whole family. Install Office Student and Teacher Edition 2003 on up to three computers in your home without having to buy extra licenses. Get software for the entire family and save money.
What You Get
Office Student and Teacher Edition 2003 includes:
- Excel 2003
- Outlook 2003
- PowerPoint 2003
- Word 2003
You and your family can easily create, exchange, and move files between home and school; manage e-mail messages more safely and efficiently; and spend less time doing research and other school-related and personal tasks.
Fully Compatible with Other Versions of Office
Ensure the programs you use at home are fully compatible with the versions you use at school. Office 2003 Editions files are compatible with files created with Microsoft Office 97 and later versions.
- Create, move, and edit files with confidence. Create Office 2003 Edition files at home or school and then work with them on computers running other versions of Office. You don't have to convert or reformat your files, or recreate your work. Also view and make changes to your files on different computers.
- Exchange files with other Office users. Share files with more people and reduce the need for converters, which can corrupt file contents or lose formatting.
The Best Tools for Learning
Make the time you and your family spend using computers a more productive, satisfying experience.
- Access easy-to-use resources. Office 2003 Edition programs share a familiar user interface (UI) and tools that give you easy access to the programs you use every day--without having to learn how to use new ones.
- Research and study more easily. Use the Research task pane to find information from dictionaries, encyclopedias, and other sources, some of which may require a connection to the Internet, while you're working in your Office 2003 Editions program.
- Find resources for school and class planning. Use tools on Office Online to access reference information, study tips, and hundreds of templates for personal tasks or student reports, research papers, and other files commonly used at schools.
- Learn how to best use the programs. Expand your skills with online training and in-product Help from Office Online.
- Share your presentations. Use Package for CD in PowerPoint 2003 to make your presentations more portable by copying them onto a CD, which can be carried easily between home and school. Include the free PowerPoint Viewer on the CD and you can distribute presentations to individuals who don't use Microsoft PowerPoint.
- Help protect your family from junk e-mail messages and viruses. Help protect your family from annoying--and potentially dangerous--junk e-mail messages. The Junk E-Mail Filter in Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 can help you filter out unwanted messages, block unwanted Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) pictures in junk e-mail messages, and make a list of trusted senders. Enhanced antivirus capabilities can help prevent your family from downloading viruses from the Internet or school.
- Recover files and retrieve e-mail messages quickly and easily. On slow e-mail connections, Outlook 2003 downloads subject information first so you can quickly identify and read more urgent messages. File recovery can also help you retrieve files quickly after service interruptions without recreating or reformatting files.
