Microsoft’s search engine, Bing, has plans to expand control for school district IT administrators. Later this year a new service, Bing for Schools, will allow a custom tailored experience for education institutions. The new service will allow opt-ins without the need of any special software or a different search address.
IT administrators can take control of a collection of new features inducing the ability to remove ads from search results, default filtering to “strict” while locking out a student’s ability to change it, and a customized Bing homepage that integrate a common core curriculum.
Microsoft's Bing behavioral scientist, Matt Wallaert, outlines the program’s abilities in a press release:
For now, not much more information is known about Bing’s program - those interested can sign up at Bing.com/schools for more information.
