Harnessing the power of Microsoft’s Office 365 to provide a better social learning environment

In the summer of 2012 The University of West London set out to harness the immense potential of the free Cloud-based suite of collaboration tools, provided by Office 365, to create a personalised, interactive, social platform to support the institution’s mission to raise aspiration through the pursuit of excellence. Allowing students to combine social learning with academic study.  The University won the UCISA Award for Excellence, 2012 for the service they have created.
