Office 365 is a cloud-based software solution of the traditional Office software suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook Email, etc.) and newer tools, such as OneNote, OneDrive, and Microsoft Teams.
OneNote: Teachers and students can organize information in their own digital binders. In addition, OneNote Class Notebooks enable teachers to digitally manage entire classes with individual learning spaces for every student, content libraries for reference materials, and collaboration spaces for whole class lessons.
OneDrive: The secure, online storage of work, accessible from any internet-connected device, eliminates the need for flash drives to transfer content between home and school.
Office at Home: All students and teachers can install the Office 2016 software suite on home computers, tablets, or mobile devices through their Office 365 account.
Teams: Teams is the latest addition to the Office 365 toolset, bringing together a digital workplace with conversations, NoteBooks, Office 365 apps, and embedded content from hundreds of other resources.
Class Policy: Class Policy is a device management software installed on both teacher and student laptops. Teachers can launch specific websites or applications during class on student devices, as well as limit applications to keep students on task or for assessment purposes.
Skooler integrates Office 365 and other applications for maximum teacher efficiency. It also enhances communication between teachers, students, and parents. We look forward to teachers piloting Skooler this spring.
