The following post is written in conjunction with Skooler, a Microsoft in Education partner, ahead of the UK launch event for the learning management tool in July.
Microsoft Office 365 + Skooler
The Norwegian Education Technology company Skooler has quickly made their mark in Norway & Sweden, with over 600 schools currently using their learning management tools. Skooler has launched their tools for Education in partnership with Microsoft here in the UK and to celebrate the launch they will be holding an event at The Norwegian Ambassador’s Residence on July 5th 2016 at 18:30pm. Inviting Innovators in Technology from Schools, Colleges, Educational Trusts and Journalists.
Many schools across the UK have access to O365 and chosen this solution as their platform for collaboration and productivity. It allows them to access the same familiar office tools (Word, Powerpoint, Outlook, Excel etc) on their PC, and across devices. Most schools are just getting started and currently only use email and calendar (Outlook). Skooler has developed “Skooler Dashboard” this will provide a clean interface which can be personalised with your school logo with Skooler tiles for additional resources. Some schools have discovered OneDrive and OneNote in addition to the office tools. For those schools who have access to the full suite of tools including Skype, Yammer, Delve & Sway, Skooler has developed Skooler LMT bringing a deeper integration with O365. In addition to the O365 tools, Skooler can offer an Assignment tool linked to the Learning Goals from The National Curriculum, Lesson Planning, ILPs, Attendance, Parent Portal, Anti Bullying Tools and so much more.
The evening starts with short presentions on OneNote from the Microsoft team, Skooler LMT/Dashboard followed by an opportunity to network with colleagues over drinks and Canapes.
