Educators who are interested in using the same suite of tools that the business world has come to expect for effective communication and collaboration with their students and other educators.
Office 365 provides access to familiar Office tools from virtually anywhere – including free e-mail, shared team sites, online document editing and storage, instant messaging, and video conferencing for students, faculty, and staff. In this training, educators will learn how Lync provides a media for meeting virtually: for parent conferences, for team or student meetings, or to just touch base with struggling students. They will also learn time saving ways to make Outlook and Calendar work for them and strategies for staying organized, easily sharing files, and using OneDrive’s Office Online.
Lync is the 24/7 solution to real collaboration and communication, preparing students for the work place while brainstorming, sharing documents, polling for formative assessment, using audio/video conferencing and more. Work with your students and other classes around the world. Educators will be comfortable with using this conferencing tool after this professional learning experience.
The ability to effectively communicate has never been more important than it is today. This has grown from just using e-mail messages to real time communication. Along with effective communication comes the need to stay organized. Complimenting Lync, Office 365 provides the perfect tools to manage these skills with Outlook, Yammer, People, and Calendar.
As a finale for this introductory training, educators will see how OneDrive for Business is the answer for document storage, an effective collaboration tool for working together on projects, managing student portfolios, and housing content and curriculum – making this a great solution by using cloud versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote.
