In a bid to encourage better collaboration between teachers and students, Microsoft has brought out a range of different tools for Office 365 Education, which is sure to give your o365 development a serious boost in the coming weeks.
You’ll be able to create new Office documents using the Microsoft Classroom software like PowerPoint, Excel and Word, or use any existing content you might have. What’s more, you’ll be able to take advantage of School Data Synch, which allows you to connect your current school systems to Office 365. And Microsoft Forms have also just been made available worldwide so that you can come up with surveys, registrations, custom quizzes and a whole lot more… however you see fit to use the software, really.
“Our mission is to empower every student on the planet to achieve more. With Microsoft Classroom, and student-focused, teacher-inspired Office 365 Education, we’re doing just that,” Tony Prophet, corporate vice-president of education marketing, wrote on the Microsoft blog.
Office 365 Education is free for students and teachers to use, which will surely encourage adoption – so why not give it a go today? What have you got to lose? There’s also OneNote ink you can use to help save you time, improve student scores in science and maths, and improve the quality of teaching… what could be better than that? It’s available on Mac, iOS and Android.
