UAE MoE to provide email to 129,000 students
Students to get free email and Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus
The UAE Ministry of Education (MoE) has introduced an email service which will cater to 129,000 students throughout its schools across the Emirates.
Over 10,000 student emails have been registered so far, with the process of registration ongoing. The ministry said the deployment is part of its commitment to help students efficiently integrate ICT into the educational process.
The email service is based on Microsoft Outlook, and complies with safety standards set by the ministry. Each account has a capacity of up to 50 GB and can be access through a Single Sign On (SSO) system.
The ministry has also provided Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus to all students free of charge.
Abdul Rahman Al Hammadi, Assistant Undersecretary of Support Services, said that the new email service is part of an electronic network the ministry has established to support the communication of key leaders, senior officials, workers and other affiliates in the educational sector. He also said this is part of a series of diverse smart services the ministry will be providing to parents, all of which feature high levels of data security made possible via advanced programs and applications.
