Other Information & Options

Microsoft Excel Versions 365 / 2019 / 2016
These software versions are very similar. The difference is mostly a matter of how you’re accessing the software. Microsoft Excel 365 is accessed via the cloud. You pay a monthly subscription to use the software. Since it’s not static on your device, you’ll get updates to the software when they happen. On the otherhand, 2019 / 2016 and earlier PC versions are purchased outright and installed directly onto your computer (aka “on-premise”).
Excel features and functions are the same no matter which of these versions you’re using and as such students with those versions can attend the same classes.
