What is Microsoft Azure Dev Tools for Teaching?

Microsoft Azure Dev Tools for Teaching (formerly Imagine, Dreamspark or MSDN Academic Alliance) allows SEAS students and researchers to get free installations of a variety of Microsoft software. This includes Visual Studio, Visio, and Microsoft operating systems. It also includes various servers and driver development kits from Microsoft. Microsoft Office is not available via Microsoft Imagine, although some applications like Project and Visio are available.

This software can only be used for instruction or research. It cannot be used for commercial use or for university infrastructure or administration.
