The file-hosting service Dropbox is launching a new deployment option specifically for colleges and universities. More than 4,000 institutions already use the company’s cloud-based storage solutions for businesses, but the company saw an opportunity to launch a separate offering for educational institutions, said Jason Katcher, who leads Dropbox’s education efforts. While Dropbox for Business customers pay $149 a year per user, Dropbox Education is priced at $49. Colleges can also earn discounts depending on the size of their student populations. Katcher, previously the head of Google Apps for Education, said Dropbox sees itself playing a supporting role to the learning management systems and collaboration tools that colleges already use.
