This week’s webcasts for education customers and partners 7-11 November 2011


There are three webcasts to know about this week - the one specifically for schools is the Tech Tuesday webcast on office, and then there are two general ones for technical teams. The teams running the two more geeky sessions have provided me with quite a technical description of what they are going to cover - and I’ve not opted to translate it into plain English (mainly because it’s an indicator of the technical level of the webinar - if you can understand the description, then you’ll stand a chance of understanding the session!)

All of the timings for the webcasts are AEST (Australia East Coast time).
See ** below for more details on how the webcasts work
