The UTSA Office of Information Technology (OIT) hosted an "Office 365 for Business: UTSA on the Cloud" training course for faculty and staff on Thursday, September 22, 2016 from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. The highly-interactive training, which was held in a state-of-the-art computer lab in the North Paseo Building (NPB 1.412), provided attendees an opportunity to learn about accessing the cloud from virtually anywhere as well as using collaborative tools to increase team efficiency.

Communications Specialist Nicole Duff and Project Coordinator Rosalind Ong De Trevino led the introductory training session, in which they provided demos of Microsoft Exchange Online, OneDrive for Business, Skype for Business, SharePoint Online and Delve. Participants were also given an overview of some of the newer applications available through the Outlook Web App (OWA) such as Power BI and Sway. All of these resources are available for FREE to UTSA faculty and staff.

Additionally, participants learned about Skillsoft, a FREE online training resource available to all UTSA faculty and staff. Skillsoft contains videos, books and courses on an array of topics including desktop skills (such as using Microsoft Office or Adobe software), personal development skills, and business skills.

Communications Specialist Danicia Steele assisted faculty and staff with navigating through the products, which were explored during the training.

OIT regularly offers training courses throughout the academic year, to help familiarize faculty and staff with some of the resources available to increase productivity and help them work more efficiently. The next Office365 training is scheduled for November 17, 2016.
