Course Summary:

Office 365 has a myriad of tools (not just SharePoint!) that enable us to work more productively. They can be, however, overwhelming! Let’s make it simple!

This course explores what’s possible in the tools offered by O365. Experience USING the tools. Figure out what could work for your company.

The challenge in most cases is:

  • I don’t know what I don’t know;
  • I don’t know when to use what tool.

Take a guided discovery through the new ways of working; gathering insight into how to USE the tools in a cohesive, practical and enhancing manner.
Learn some new tips and tricks using collaboration tools including Delve, OneNote, SharePoint Sites, OneDrive, Teams, and Planner for Tasks.

Join in full immersion exercises that will have you experiencing the integration of all these tools to make your personal work activities more seamless and your team more productive.

Get more from what you have, and be the leader to encourage your staff to do the same.
