Mr. Sackey also revealed that the training is going to be free as part of the packages included in the laptop project,, although such training is expensive to be organized by private consultancies.
In addition to that, he disclosed that although the key of the Microsoft Office 2019 is sold on the market at $200 — $400, it can only be used for once per every laptop this means that no teacher having the Microsoft Office Suit will be able to install it on another device after being used.
