Office 365 - an overview

Event Description

The University offers Microsoft’s Office 365 to staff and students.
Office 365 offers a range of apps to enable easy access to files, and facilitate collaborative working. In this session, there will be an overview of how you might use the applications (apps available include OneDrive. OneNote. Teams. Forms, Sway, Planner as well as Word. PowerPoint and Excel). The session is very interactive. Login in via 


Personal storage space with the option to share files or folders.

You can access your files like another drive on your device. The files are stored in the Microsoft Cloud.


OneNote is a digital notebook that provides a single place for all of your notes and information (and you can create notebooks to share with other colleagues). OneNote saves as you type.


Teams facilitates chat-based working with colleagues and includes file sharing and other tools that help teams work collaboratively.


Forms are easy to create – surveys for people, inside and outside Queen’s. Forms produce charts and an Excel file stores all the responses.


Sway is a web-based way of putting across ideas, through text, imagery and animations. These can be used to persuade or inform

Word, PowerPoint and Excel

These are available as a subset of the Office 2016 equivalents and they can be used via a browser on any device connected to the Internet (whether or not you have Office 365 on the device).
