Microsoft Office 365 Learning & Training Opportunities 

IT Services is partnering with Microsoft to bring in-person Office 365 training to SU students, faculty, and staff. Each month in 2020, local experts from the Microsoft Store will come onsite to lead 60-90 minute hands-on learning and training sessions, to help us get more out of the technology we use every day – including SharePoint, OneDrive, Teams, and OneNote. A full 2020 calendar will be posted here soon. 

The first session is January 16th from noon-1:30pm and will cover SharePoint Online.  Contact Matt Byers to sign up for this session.  Space is limited, so sign up today! This is a hands-on training: bring your laptop and your favorite snack or beverage. 

These sessions are intended to improve your ability and comfort using Microsoft technology, and the Microsoft Store can bring many topics and tools to bear, for our benefit.  This type of Microsoft Store learning experience is a new arrangement for Seattle University, and ITS wants to make it useful, relevant, and frequent LET US KNOW if we can make these sessions better suited to your needs!
