Office Delve

Thursday, October 20, 2016

Office Delve helps you discover the information most likely to be interesting to you across Office 365. Delve shows you documents no matter where they're stored, whether in your OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Sites. Delve never changes any permissions, so you see files already shared with you, while others cannot see files you've kept private.

With Delve, you can connect and collaborate with other members of your organization. Click someone's name or picture anywhere in Office 365 to see shared or public documents they're working on, or to learn more about them. Add documents as a favorite or to a board in Delve to easily return. Office 365 organizes documents according to what's most relevant to you at the time, and the more often your colleagues and you use Office 365 the more targeted content will be for you specifically.

For more details, visit our page about Office Delve

Microsoft Forms

Sunday, October 16, 2016

Microsoft Forms is a new part of Office 365 Education that allows you to quickly and easily create custom quizzes, surveys, questionnaires, registrations, and more. This service is accessible to all students, faculty, and staff as an alternative to Qualtrics. 

When you create a form, you can invite others to respond to it using any web browser or mobile device. As results are submitted, you can use built-in analytics to evaluate responses. Form data can also be easily exported to Excel for additional analysis or grading. 

For more details, visit our Microsoft Forms page.
