The Microsoft Imagine / Microsoft DreamSpark has been renamed to Azure Dev Tools for Teaching.  It no longer uses Kivuto’s OnTheHub. Microsoft Azure Dev Tools for Teaching puts professional developer tools, software, and services in the hands of faculty and students with low-cost subscriptions from Microsoft. Students receive developer tools from Microsoft at no additional cost – everything needed to create apps, games and websites – so they can chase their dreams, create the next big breakthrough in technology, or get a head start on their career.
