Don't have experience in implementation in higher-ed per se but do provide
some of their products to college-bound high school students with
I'd provided many with the stand alone Co:writer for a few years till this
year when they said that was no longer available to purchase. Instead the
product required use with a chrome extension or use with Office 365 and
both setups require being connected to the Internet to function. The
student I provided it to is out in an area with spotty connection at times
so I wasn't happy with the change.
It is bad enough when all these companies want us to buy into subscription
models. Requiring a connection to the Internet to function is likely the
breaking point for me buying this product for future students.
