Recently I’ve been chatting with academic colleagues about using OneNote’s Class Notebook available from the Office 365 homepage, for tutorial or personal tutor scenarios.
Have you had a go with Microsoft’s aptly named Planner program (accessed via your Office 365 homepage)? Planner lets you create a board, add cards for tasks to do and share the plan with colleagues.
Are you a Microsoft Forms convert yet? If not, why not have a go at creating and using a Microsoft Form either for a quiz or survey. Find out how to get started by reading our blog post from 15 March.
Interested in using Yammer but not sure where to start?
Here are five ideas to get you started using Yammer whether it’s for learning, teaching or assessment, within a group or as an individual user:
Ask for feedback: Tell people what you̵
If you’ve already explored Microsoft Sway, you’ll know that this digital storytelling package loves visuals. You can add images, but did you know it’s also easy to add video too?
From the Cards pane, just select a Video card.
Working with an Excel column of full names, but wishing you’d set this up as two separate columns? Luckily there’s an Excel trick to help you do this.
What is Planner?
Planner allows you to create an electronic Board (1) where you can add Buckets (2) and pin electronic cards (3) to your lists.
If you’ve upgraded to Office 2016 and are lucky enough to have a touchscreen laptop or tablet you can now handwrite equations which are then converted to typed text.
Microsoft Forms is a program within Office 365 (Education) that enables you to create custom quizzes, surveys and questionnaires. You can then invite others to respond (using any browser and using mobile devices).
Yammer is a private social network that helps you network with others within your organisation, share information across teams, and organise projects or working groups.
