Course description

This course is for all teachers who are interested in using Microsoft 365 for their classrooms. Microsoft 365 offers many applications that can be used both for blended and remote teaching.

As a webinar attendee, you will discover some of the often unknown functions of WordPowerpoint, and OneNote that allow for easier creation and managing of content & will make them more engaging for your students. Learn how to use Teams to create an online classroom and discover how lesser-known programs such as Forms, Sway, and Stream can be used effectively in class.

This webinar will consist of 5 lessons, one lesson per week in the Standard version, one lesson per day in the Intensive version. Live lesson recordings and other resources will be available even after you have finished the course.

Please note: In order to access some of the advanced Powerpoint and Word functions yourself, you will need to have a recent desktop version of Office (not just the web app) installed on your computer.
