Taken from the Microsoft Education in the Cloud Blog (check out our feature on ADFS in Azure) here are some of our favorite tips for using Office 365 for Education to take educators and students alike through the rest of the school year:
Multiple co-authoring in Office Web Apps
Have students work on class projects or in teams by leveraging Office Web Apps, which support multiple simultaneous authors on spreadsheets and documents for real-time collaboration!
Follow content in SharePoint Online
Track useful content in your school’s SharePoint Online environment by following it – receive any relevant updates directly in your newsfeed.
Drag and drop functionality in SkyDrive Pro
A huge time saver in terms of file uploading, with the new Office 365, students and teachers alike can drag and drop multiple files into documents libraries for an automatic upload, without tediously hunting for individual files and repeat the upload process.
Lync Online Web Scheduler
For any school without the Outlook client, Lync Online Web Scheduler makes it easy for teachers and staff to configure meetings settings through your browser. And with the latest Office 365 updates, you can schedule a meeting from the Outlook Web Application!
With Office 365’s offline mode for OWA, the work of faculty and students remains safe, even in the case of an internet outage (while tried and true Office and SkyDrive pro clients keep things going).
