Microsoft (Thailand) Ltd. and OBEC inked a five-year memorandum of understanding to provide Thai schools with access to Microsoft Office 365 tools, Microsoft said Tuesday.

The agreement is also intended to extend Microsoft’s Partners in Learning program in the country until 2019.

“Microsoft’s support will ensure that educators and students are empowered with solutions and platforms that are aligned with their needs,” said Anek Ratpiyapaporn, OBEC senior advisor in technology for teaching and learning.

Students and teachers will be able to build information repositories and collaborate on cloud environments through the software system, says Microsoft.

Haresh Khoobchandani, managing director of Microsoft in Thailand, added that the initiative is expected to bring the number of Office 365 users to more than 10 million.
