One of our partners, Parabola Software, asked me to let you know about their free “SharePoint in Further Education” day which we’re hosting at our main offices in Reading on Friday 27th March.
As well as an opportunity understand what Sharepoint can offer and chat with people from Parabola and Microsoft, you’ll be able to see what other colleges are using SharePoint for and to network with them.
Parabola Software has been working in FE for 5 years now, and they’ve built up quite a few customer references – on their website they’ve got case studies from Esher College and Oxford and Cherwell Valley College.
This free event is principally for principals and the IT decision makers in colleges. Later this year they plan a separate technical workshop for IT staff.
Here’s the agenda
Introduction - Amanda Bicknell, Microsoft
