Why Hosting ?
Although Microsoft will give academic institutions Dynamics software registration keys for free if they are signed up for the Microsoft Dynamics Academarchiveic Alliance with their institution, the hardware and implementation costs are the responsibility of the school. These costs can be significant especially when adding in the labor costs for IT staff. Added on top of hardware is the time and effort it takes to implement and maintain a Dynamics system.
Using a hosting model is less expensive, easier to maintain and support, and lets professors focus on instruction and curriculum development
Usually the costs of a system can be managed in a few ways:
- The school can pay for the per student per semester fee
- The student can be sent an invoice directly, usually via paypal
- Depending on setup requirement there can be a mix of the two options above where the school pays for setup and students pay the per student per semester fee
