Microsoft Contest Highlights TeachNet

Microsoft's Jump Start CD for Education, both for K-12 and the one for Higher Education, are no longer available. They were offered for a limited time and while supplies lasted. Some of the programs on the CDs -- such as Word Internet Assistant -- are availabe for free download from Microsoft's Web site at http://www.microsoft.com.
Microsoft's Internet products include: Internet Information Server (IIS), Windows NT Server, Internet Explorer 3.0, plus Web viewers for Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Benchmark tests show that Internet Information Server (IIS) outperforms other NT Web servers by at least 250%, even outrunning expensive UNIX solutions.
Microsoft also announced a contest for colleges or universities that demonstrate innovative use of IIS in academic or administrative computing. The top 50 entries will receive a one-year subscription to Microsoft TeachNet (worth $699), a database of in-depth Microsoft product information. Find details of the contest at http://www.microsoft.com/HEd/; it runs until October 9, 1996.
