This course is an introduction to Microsoft Office 365 with Skype for Business in a cloud-based environment. It can be used as an orientation to the full suite of Office 365 cloud-based tools, or the Skype for Business 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 Skype for Business instant messaging and online meetings. 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—Teams, Yammer, Planner, and Delve—that can be used in combination by teams for communication and collaboration.
To ensure your success, you will need to be familiar with the Windows operating system and a web browser. You also need competence in using the locally installed version of Microsoft Outlook for email and calendaring, and should be familiar with at least one of the primary applications in the Microsoft Office suite (Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft Excel).
