What is Microsoft 365 Office 365 is a new cloud-based service that brings together Office and software like SharePoint, Exchange and Lync for use in the workplace. Microsoft Office 365 lets you work from virtually anywhere and on almost any device. It combines the familiar Microsoft Office Web Apps with a new set of web-enabled tools.

Trialling – some suggestions… Use the trial as a chance to try new things/ways. Reflect on pedagogy and keep notes on what works, what doesn’t and why so that we can share.
