Free, Feature-Filled, and For Your Classroom:
An Intro to Office Online
August 17, 2016 ♦ 6:00pm - 7:30pm ET
Session Description: Microsoft’s Office Online is a completely free, web-based version of Microsoft Office. This online office suite is clearly competing with Google Docs, but it’s also a potential replacement for the desktop version of Office. In this workshop we'll discuss the similarities and differences between Office Online, the desktop version of Microsoft Office and Google Docs. Participants will understand how to use OneDrive for file sharing; OneNote for curating resources and creating portfolios; Excel Survey for data collection, registrations, surveys, and assessment; and Outlook.com for email and calendar. We will also share time-saving ways to make Outlook and Calendar work for you; as well as strategies for staying organized, easily sharing files, and using these tools with your students. Remember, it is OK2Ask questions at any time! This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.**
As a result of this session and through individual follow-up, teachers will:
- Understand the differences between features available in the desktop version of Microsoft Office, Office Online, and Google Docs.
- Explore classroom applications for Excel Survey and OneNote.
- Plan for the use of Office Online in the classroom.
