New Office 365 training service

10:50AM, 6 July 2020

IT Services have launched a new training service to support staff and students in the use of Office 365 applications.

The new self-service area on Learn hosts a variety of learning resources from Microsoft and LinkedIn Learning. The module is easy to navigate through and offers a range of bitesize videos and downloadable guides.

How to access the module

Sign into LEARN with your Loughborough credentials and use the module search bar to search for ‘Office 365 Training’. The module is set to ‘Self-Enrol’ so you’ll need to click on this to access all the content.

Training Workshops

To complement this, IT Services – in collaboration with Organisational Development and the Doctoral College – will be launching bookable face-to-face training workshops for staff and Doctoral Researchers later this year. These courses will introduce you to the available tools and features for storing, communicating, and collaborating with others using Office 365.

OneDrive

If you have struggled to understand when you should be using OneDrive or O365 Groups, then this course will help you to understand the basics of how to store and share documents and collaborate effectively with others.

OneNote

A basic introduction on how to access the app, create a notebook to collect and organise different types of information, and how you can use it collaboratively to collect and share resources and information with your team.

Forms

An introduction to Forms to help you create surveys, quizzes, polls, and capture feedback and how to access real-time analytics once live.

Dates for these workshops will be released in the autumn of 2020 and will run if it is safe to do so at that time, ensuring any health and safety requirements are met.
