Last week I posted a series of blog posts of Office 365 for education videos, produced by my colleagues in the US, sharing some of the things that Office 365 makes possible. And I realised that it would be helpful to stick them all onto one page, rather than four separate ones.
They were created to help people not using Office 365 for education, to show them what is possible, and I think they would be really useful for schools, TAFEs and universities who are rolling out Office 365 to staff and students – they make great introductory videos for training – allowing you to start a session by demonstrating what users will be able to do at the end of a hands-on training hour!
