Office 365 Hidden Gems. Practical use in the classrooms. Featuring Sway, Yammer, Video, Forms.

Office 365 is the latest generation of MS Office Suite and it is cloud based.

While most of us are familiar Word, Excel and PowerPoint on the desktop, and many of us have used or heard about online versions of these products, not many have experienced or heard about the new online tools that Microsoft incorporated into Office 365 lineup.

We discover these tools during the session.

Sway – is a new online presentation software. It has short learning curve and it’s easy to use. It takes care of most of the design of your presentation while you can spend your time working on the content.

We will show co-authoring collaborative features of Sway and allow session attendees to work together on a sample Sway presentation. We will provide with examples of how Sway is being used in Cary Academy classrooms.


Think of Office 365 Video as your school’s YouTube. Office 365 Video provides an easy and straightforward way for faculty and students to create video channels, upload and tag videos for all kinds of school and learning projects. Uploaded video clips are immediately available for the entire school community to watch. Alternatively, secure permissions can be setup to make videos available to only selected groups of people.


Forms are latest addition to Office365 for Education and allow educators to create online surveys and forms in an easy and intuitive manner. Office Forms are similar to Google Forms but with native integration with other Office tools like OneNote.

We will be showing real classroom projects and examples from our teachers.
