Net@Work O365 Hands On Lab Presentation


Published on

As a result of the success we’ve had helping clients plan their transition to the Cloud, Microsoft asked Net@Work to present three Office 365 Hands-on Labs to educate users that are unfamiliar with Office 365 about Microsoft’s Cloud services. Our first set of free training workshops were held last week at our New York office and by all accounts were highly welcomed by all. Here is a quick overview of what was covered.

Office 365 is a comprehensive set of online and offline tools based around familiar Office programs like Word, Excel & Outlook. Attendees were walked through online activities such as:

Starting and joining group video calls with Lync
Creating and editing Office documents via Web Apps
Sharing Office documents via SkyDrive
Microsoft provided an entire lab setup for our use, including Lenovo Yoga Convertible Tablets running Windows 8.1 and Jabra headsets for voice and video calls.

We are working on scheduling our next round of O365 labs and will publish the dates once they are confirmed. If you would like to secure your seat in advance please email us here.

In the meantime, if you interested in trying out Office 365 please visit and start a free 30 day trial!
