About this Course

This course is an introduction to Microsoft® Office 365™ with Teams™ in a cloud-based environment. It can be used as an orientation to the full suite of Office 365 cloud-based tools, or the Teams lessons can be presented separately in a seminar-length presentation with the remaining material available for later student reference.

Using the Office 365 suite of productivity apps, users can easily communicate and collaborate together through Microsoft® Outlook® mail and Teams™ messaging and meeting functionality. Additionally, the Microsoft® SharePoint® team site provides a central storage location for accessing and modifying shared documents. This course introduces working with shared documents in the familiar Office 365 online apps—Word, PowerPoint®, and Excel®—as an alternative to installing the Microsoft® Office desktop applications. This course also introduces several productivity apps including Yammer™, Planner, and Delve® that can be used in combination by teams for communication and collaboration.
