Microsoft Highlights Growth in Education

Posted on March 6, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows 10 with 10 Comments

Following its recent push in the education market, Microsoft is today highlighting the growth of its products in the education sector. The company highlighted the growth of Windows in the education market today based on a report from Futuresource.

According to Futuresource’s latest report, the market share of Windows devices grew by 6.5% year-over-year in the United States, fueled by the recent introduction of affordable and modern Windows 10 laptops. Worldwide, though, shipments of Windows devices declined slightly to 43.5% in 2017. Despite Windows’ growth in the US market, Chromebooks continue to dominate in the country, accounting for 87% of shipments in 2017.

For Microsoft, sales of Windows hardware isn’t everything. The company is touting growth in its education-focused services as well. OneNote, for example, grew by 75% in the last year, and more than 18 million student notebooks were created with the service since the start of the school year. The company says more than 10 million monthly active users use its Learning Tools available across some Office apps and Windows 10, too.
