A straightforward Office 365 Training Guide made by teachers for teachers!

One of the best sources of advice and tuition on a product are the end users who can speak from a position of experience and impartiality. That’s why we’re always pleased to pass on the findings and opinions of our customers, as more often than not the use cases they talk about will be applicable to a much larger subset of our existing and future users.


We recently came across a fantastic resource from the United States, put together by the Grant Wood Area Education Agency. This particular guide was designed to help when it comes to schools using Office 365.

In their guide you’ll find concise overviews, along with everyday usage tips for the following applications found within Office 365 for Education:

· OneDrive

· Word

· PowerPoint

· Excel

· Excel Surveys

· OneNote

We hope this resource from Grant Wood AEA is of use to you, and please feel free to share it with others who might find it helpful.

Office Pro Plus Benefit for Students

It is also worth remembering that any institution worldwide that licenses Office for staff and faculty can provide access to Office 365 ProPlus for students at no additional cost. As a result, more than 35,000 institutions worldwide are automatically eligible to deliver the package to their students.

Office 365 ProPlus includes all the familiar and full Office applications, such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint, and offers the ability for these to be locally installed on up to five devices and available offline.

Furthermore, when a school combines the Office Pro Plus Benefit with our other cloud services - Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and Lync Online - of which all are available complementary through Office 365 Education, students have access to the same set of productivity tools and services used by Fortune 500 companies all over the world.
