Office 365 training and roadshows

August 16th, 2017

Earlier this year, Information Services ran a series of workshops for University of Nottingham staff with the aim of familiarising colleagues across UK campuses with the many features and applications of Office 365.

The Smarter Computing team are scheduling another round of Office 365 Roadshows next month. If you have not yet had the chance to attend, you can find them at the following locations:

  • 5  September – 10:00 – 12:00, Sir Clive Grainger, A41, University Park
  • 6 September – 13:30 – 15:30, Gateway building A07, Sutton Bonington
  • 8 September – 14:00 – 16:00, Exchange, C3, Jubilee Campus
  • 18 September – 10:00 – 12:00, ESLC, B02, University Park

Based upon feedback from our roadshow sessions, Information Services have also collaborated with Professional Development to design two new short courses for staff, starting later this month:

  • The first course provides an Overview of Office 365 and working in the cloud, including how to open and access applications, good practice when working collaboratively and how to use OneDrive, OneNote and Office Online applications – find out more and book on the course here
  • The second course focusses upon using Skype for Business and collaborating online, including the use of instant messaging, creating/running online meetings, using video/audio features and managing contacts – find out more and book on the course here
