About Microsoft Imagine

Microsoft Imagine (formerly DreamSpark) is a program that allows for students in enrolled Computer Science departments to obtain free, legal licenses for a variety of Microsoft software.  The computer science departments at WVU and WVU Tech (Beckley) are members of this program, so CS101 students are eligible.

What software is available?

DreamSpark provides a variety of operating systems, server, and development software. Of particular interest to CS101 students, licenses are available for Microsoft Windows 10.

What do I need to get started?

All CS101 students should receive an e-mail near the beginning of the semester with login instructions. This is generally sent during the second or third week of class. If you did not receive this e-mail and are a Morgantown student, e-mail for assistance. WVU Tech (Beckley) students should e-mail Dr. Ranjith Munasinghe at

How do I download software?

You can download software through the Imagine ELMS website for Morgantown students or WVU Tech (Beckley) students. Your MIX e-mail address is your username. You should have received an e-mail in your MIX account with details on the password.
