De EdPG groep binnen Microsoft heeft een nieuwe site gelanceerd waarop ze de laatste ontwikkelingen op het gebied van Microsoft en onderwijs zullen gaan posten! Op de website beschrijven ze het volgende:
Think of Education Labs as your personal playground. It’s a place where you can tinker with all sorts of toys and gadgets, explore new possibilities, and chat with others about new ideas for the education sector.
The prototypes, ideas, and conversations you’ll find here include:
· Prototypes inspired by our community members, and developed in partnership with Microsoft product teams
· The future of technology in education, including videos and demo scenarios that explore how educators will teach and students will learn
· Blogs and discussions for capturing feedback and keeping you in the loop
We’re here to start a conversation with you—tell us what you think and help us design the technology of the future.
Keep in mind the ideas and prototypes provided on this site are incubation projects and aren't actual products or features from the Microsoft Education Products Group. They may not work perfectly under all conditions. However, they are steps toward the future of education and we’d like you to be part of the innovation. Let’s collaborate and see which ideas flourish. New ideas can pop up any time, so we hope you’ll check back often and join us in the exploration.

Exciting times for Moodle users that also are considering Live@edu!
Today, the Education Products Group (EdPG) announced the availability of the Microsoft Live Services Plug-in for Moodle at the Open Source Conference 2009 (OSCON). The Plug-in is a free downloadable solution that provides integrated access to Live@edu services such as email, calendar, instant messaging and search directly within the Moodle user experience for the classroom, and allows easy access to such services with one simple sign-on. This means students, teachers and faculty can quickly communicate, collaborate and conduct research from directly inside the Moodle learning management system.
To help Live@EDU customers gain access to and understand this functionality, Microsoft is releasing the full source and accompanying documentation to the plug-in. The team believes this will be useful to Live@EDU customers who use or are considering using Moodle; they are also hoping schools using Moodle will consider signing up for Live@EDU services now that the Plug-in integrates some of them (e.g. Outlook Live and Windows Live Messenger) directly into the Moodle environment.
The Microsoft Live Services Plug-In for Moodle is available at the Education Labs website (www.educationlabs.com) which also launched today. This is a new site where the Education Products Group will post some of their latest projects and ideas to get early community involvement and feedback, and where early adopters can go to learn about our latest research in the education vertical segment The Live Services Plug in for Moodle is the first code released on Education Labs site.
