Microsoft Office 365 Certification

The Instructional Technology department developed this certification program to assist faculty in using technology to collaborate effectively. Through the various applications office 365 has to offer, faculty will achieve the following:

  • Share documents with colleagues to collaborate in real time.
  • Save documents to a cloud location, allowing them to access materials from any computer.
  • Embed PowerPoint presentations into Blackboard, preventing students from having to download multiple documents to their computers and free storage space.
  • Insert web links to Word documents to allow members of the course to edit documents and collaborate.
  • Increase their effective course design by embedding Sway presentations for more engaging content. 

This training program is free to the Sacred Heart faculty and staff, and will be offered during the Spring 2017 semester. There are four courses being offered for the program. Introduction to OneDrive is a required webinar that will walk through the basics of how set up your Microsoft account, as well as properly save and retrieve documents from your free space on OneDrive. In addition to the required webinar, in order to relieve the certificate, participants are required to complete two of the three electives offered.
