One of the most recent and most popular Microsoft creations is Bing – the “decision” engine and the closest thing to a challenger in the Google age of search engine. Bing touts its ability and functionality with image search and appeals to travelers with more information built-in about travel, but it’s got a new trick up it’s sleeve.

Education.

Yep, you heard me right. Microsoft wants to take its vision to improving our education system – K-12 and higher education – through its new project REDU.

REDU is available at http://letsredu.com – it provides information, tutorials, and videos to help improve America’s education system. I’m pretty convinced Microsoft is really trying to make an impact, but I’ll let you be the judge.
