"site licenses can cost serious $$$, even for educational institutions"

Nah, the EES volume licenses are fairly cheap - around $10/user per year. That was for the plan that only offers students Office365 to use at home (which Microsoft says is "free" as part of the base Windows licensing). It does cost a bit more to include WAH for standard Office 20xx for students, maybe double the price? We dropped that where I used to work when MS came out with the "free" Office365 back in 2012 or so. Microsoft wants to make it as easy as possible for schools (especially universities) to push MS software out to the future Microsoft customers...
