via LinkedIn Learning


Learn how to use Microsoft Office 365 for education: to create more dynamic lessons, track student progress, communicate and share files online, and even save time.

Microsoft Office is a staple set of tools for educators, and now includes education-specific functionality such as classroom notebooks in OneDrive and educator-specific collaboration tools in Teams. In education, learning to use these applications can help increase learning, empower students, and save teachers valuable time. This course dives into tips and tricks that will allow educators to get the most from the entire Office suite. Instructor Oliver Schinkten explores each of the Office tools: classics like PowerPoint, Excel, and Word, as well as new additions such as Sway, OneDrive, OneNote, and Teams. He demonstrates education-specific techniques and ideas to help educators create more dynamic lessons, track student progress, share files online, and even save time. He helps you create lessons for flipped classes, newsletters, and tutorials, and turn the tables and challenge your students to create projects with the same programs.
