Office 365 User Training
Thursday, September 13, 2012 - 15:00 - 17:00
The first in a series of training sessions to be provided by Microsoft NZ.
This workshop will provide a hands on overview of the features and functionality in Microsofts Office 365 service for Education.
It is aimed at users, teachers and principals, so it will be heavy on how to and light on geek speak.
That said, the geeks are welcome to come along of course.
Register soon (below) as it is limited to 25 attendees!
Attendees will be expected to bring a laptop with Windows 7 and Office 2010 installed.
It is our intent to run a session once a month for the next 12 months (with the exception of January due to Xmas and School Holidays) . Listed below are the proposed topics for the first 3 sessions.
As we progress through the first three sessions we will work with you to identify which functionality of Office 365 or the broader Microsoft offering we will focus on for future sessions.
The key intent of all sessions is that attendees should leave being able to demonstrate and lead other educators through the same content as well.
September Session – Sept 13th 2012 – Office 365 Web Apps – OneNote and Interactive classroom.
Introduce the attendees to the online (browser based) versions of Word, Excel, Powerpoint and OneNote. In particular there will be a focus on OneNote and OneNote Interactive Classroom. The reason we have chosen to focus on with OneNote and Interactive Classroom is we intend to deliver all sessions to the attendees using OneNote and Interactive Classroom in the future.
October Session – Office 365 Sharepoint Online – Creating a School or Class Portal
A key service of Office 365 is Sharepoint online which enables schools to build individual portals for teacher, students, classes and other defined groups. We will take the attendees through the basics of setting up a Sharepoint Online Portal and how to manage various content types on the portal.
November Session – Office 365 – Lync – Using Lync to extend learning opportunities for teachers and students
Lync has the opportunity to change the ways schools, teachers and students interact with each other. If you are familiar with Skype then Lync provides essentially the same functionality but in a better managed and more extendable way. We will take the attendees through some of the key scenarios for Lync use within the school and classroom and how these scenarios can help improve school, teacher and student performance.
