Course Length 1 day

This course is an introduction to Microsoft® 365 Office for the Web with Teams® in a cloud-based environment. It can be used as an orientation to the full suite of Microsoft 365 cloud-based tools, or the Teams lessons can be presented separately in a seminar-length presentation with the remaining material available for later student reference.

Using the Microsoft 365 suite of productivity apps, users can easily communicate and collaborate together through Microsoft® Outlook® mail and Teams® messaging and meeting functionality. Additionally, the Microsoft® SharePoint® team site provides a central storage location for accessing and modifying shared documents. This course introduces working with shared documents in the familiar Microsoft 365 web apps—Word, PowerPoint®, and Excel®—as an alternative to installing the Microsoft® Office desktop applications.

Course Objectives:

In this course, you will build upon your knowledge of the Microsoft Office desktop application suite to work productively in the cloud-based Microsoft 365 environment.

You will:

  • Sign in, navigate, and identify components of the Microsoft 365 environment.
  • Create, edit, and share documents with team members using the Office web apps, SharePoint, and OneDrive® for Business.
  • Collaborate and work with colleagues using productivity apps included with Microsoft 365.
  • Use email and manage contacts with Outlook on the Web.
  • Collaborate using Teams.
  • Configure Teams.
