Microsoft Office 2016 Online Courses and Bundle Offering

Office 2016 Courses
New Microsoft Office 2016 Online Courses – with a Discounted Bundle Option!

We’re excited to be first-to-market in offering online courses for Microsoft’s latest software release! Now you can offer students these cutting-edge courses, as well as a discounted bundle option. Because of the nature of the bundle and with it being the first of similar future products, we’ve included some of the important aspects of bundle program administration below. Since this is the first launch of its kind, we’d love to hear your feedback in providing a grouped, discounted set of courses to students. Also, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your Account Manager.

Exciting Changes

In order to be quick to market with this high demand product there are some enrollment and administrative processes that differ from the traditional course rollout you (as an ed2go administrator) need to be aware of.

Shopping Cart – Students can now purchase the Value Suite bundle via a Shopping Cart during the enrollment process at the Online Instruction Center. Enabling the shopping cart functionality allows us to support displaying multiple ed2go products in a single purchase during the checkout process.

  • We have added the Shopping Cart feature to all partner sites where ed2go automatically adds newly-announced courses to the catalog.

Online Instruction Center Catalog – Students enroll in the one bundle but each individual course (Word, Excel and PowerPoint) will show up in their shopping cart for purchase at a discount. Session start dates will automatically default as follows: Word in the current session, Excel in the next session and PowerPoint in the next. Students are free to adjust the start dates during enrollment.

  • We have added Microsoft Office Value Suite 2016 to all Online Instruction Center catalogs where ed2go automatically adds newly announced courses to their catalog.

Online Administration Center – As noted above, we wanted to be quick to market with this new bundle, so there is some catalog management abilities you will not have access to until November 17th.

  • We have added Microsoft Office Value Suite 2016 to all Online Instruction Center catalogs where ed2go automatically adds newly announced courses to their catalog. If you need to remove the course from your catalog contact partnerhelpdesk@cengage.com.
  • If you add courses manually, contact partnerhelpdesk@cengage.com to add this for you.
