Last lap for the 365 Project!

The project team has now entered the final wave of the Microsoft 365 Enagagement and Enablement project as we look towards the project end date in July.

We continue to work with our colleagues in the Faculties on the use cases identified as well as working to increase general knowledge of the 365 platform and what it can offer. We have been really impressed with the input and engagement so far and have had some good successes. Check out this success story on our Learning Hub from the Arts and Humanities Faculty about dealing with Module Clashes.

During Wave 3 we worked alongside colleagues across the University to build the My Digital Skills platform for students. This platform allows students to assess their current knowledge through a Career readiness assessment, develop their understanding of Microsoft technologies and then consolidate that understanding with interactive quizzes. Take a look at the site, even if you're not a student!

In the run up to Christmas we ran several briefing sessions to deliver foundational skills in some key 365 areas. These were primarily ran for our Faculty colleagues but were opened up to everyone to join. Why not catch up on some of these sessions of you missed them by going to our Stream channel! We will be releasing some new content on the 365 Learning Hub and in our Digital Champions forum very soon so keep your eyes peeled!

From the initial engagement it became clear that there was a strong desire across all four Faculties to move their team files into the cloud. In response to this, we have started curating resources on our M365 Learning Hub to give you some tips and pointers for how you could make that move too. Check the resources out here.

We also continue to keep in touch with departments we have worked across the previous waves.
