Expand how you organize, communicate, and collaborate through the power of Office 365. This summer, the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology (CTLT) offers short, introductory workshops to three popular Office 365 apps: OneDrive, OneNote, and the new Microsoft Forms.

Workshops are held at CTLT’s facility at 301 S. Main Street. These professional development opportunities are open to faculty, AP and Civil Service staff, and graduate students. Seating is limited, so registration is required. Select a date and time to register through the My.IllinoisState portal.

Take your projects on the go using Microsoft Office apps for iOS, Android, and Windows mobile devices through OneDrive, Microsoft’s cloud-based storage, free for members of the campus community.

Microsoft Forms: Getting Started

Thursday, July 19 • 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. (repeat)

Microsoft Forms is a quick, easy, mobile-friendly way to create sign-up forms, polls, and surveys. As part of Office 365, it is open to faculty, staff, and students. This one-hour workshop will get you started using forms, show you how to design questionnaires, export data, and use this powerful tool as a real-time way to poll an audience.

OneNote: Introduction

Thursday, June 28 • 9 a.m. to noon
Monday, July 16 • 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. (repeat)

Transform how you take and share notes with Microsoft OneNote. Unlike a word processor, OneNote allows you to easily include images, videos, and audio clips anywhere on the page. Organize information into virtual notebooks that can be shared across all your devices and with others. This workshop shows you the basic features of OneNote, how to navigate the interface, and how to synchronize OneNote across mobile devices.
