Microsoft Office365: Moving beyond the office and into the classroom

Many institutions are investing in cloud based solutions for their software with Microsoft one of the leading companies with their Office365 suite of tools. During the event, we want to go beyond the use of this for supporting office and administrative tasks and consider how these products can support education and in particular student collaboration.

Most of the event will consist of a special workshop from Alan Crawford from Microsoft who will help to facilitate our exploration of these Office365 tools.

Call for presentations

We would still like to start the session with some short presentations from our community – 5 minutes – where you tell us about the approaches you have taken to using Microsoft Office 365 in education. This can be from the perspective of the tutor, learner or just providing an overview of where your institution is at with using Office365. If you are interested then please complete the form.

Closing date for submitting ideas is 5pm on Friday 16th November 2018.

    Unfortunately, I am based in the southwest and I won’t be able to attend but I was wondering if it would be possible to watch it online. Are you recording it and making it publicly available or to us?

    Thank you

    • Hi Miriam,
      I am going to record as much as I can but I am not sure what I can release to the wider community. I will be writing up a blog post about the event and I will make sure I share any contact information for Microsoft so others can arrange to have them come to them or organise a similar event.
