The Redmond Company has already launched its upcoming May event with the hashtag #MicrosoftEDU which clearly signifies that the tech giant aims to start something big for the educational sector.
After weeks of rumors over Microsoft's plans, the company finally confirmed the event when it sent out press invites via email on Wednesday, April 12.
The rumor mill has always been churning in anticipation of the Surface Pro 5, the elusive Surface Phone, and the next-generation Surface Book, but before any of these beasts hit the market, it seems that Microsoft is preparing some education offerings. The event will also reportedly have a strong educational focus. Foley's theory makes sense and it sounds more plausible than the vague job description without a title, but it's unconfirmed for now.
The rumor mills have widely reported that Microsoft has already developed its Windows 10 Cloud operating system which has been specifically created to target the educational sector.
At the same event they announced, the company may introduce us to a new product wearing the name Microsoft Surface CloudBook.

The report confirms the release timeline of the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3310 in Malaysia, India, Russia, Europe and the UK. Not only does it upgrade the phone's OS to Android 7.1.1, but also adds support for 4G/3G dual sim dual standby.
Essentially, the Windows 10 Cloud Project is a different version of the Windows 10 OS, except that it will let you download apps from the Windows Store.
However, Microsoft is still expected to unveil at least one piece of new hardware, though it is not likely to be the successor of the Surface Book.
Furthermore, it has been widely reported that Microsoft has no intention of revealing any details regarding its next line of Surface devices, such as the Surface Pro 5 and the Surface Book 2. Windows RT wasn't targeted at the education market, but it still served as a valuable lesson.
As for the launch of the rumored Surface Phone or a new Surface Pro device, sources familiar with Microsoft's plans told The Verge not to expect that either one will be unveiled at the spring event.
Microsoft has an event planned for May 2 believed to be focused on the education market, which has always been an Apple stronghold.
