Microsoft to provide free Office 365 training to teaching staff

With online teaching set to continue from the start of the new school year, Microsoft Serbia will offer schoolteachers and university professors ten-day Office 365 training free of charge

The tech giant will support free Office 365 training to facilitate online lessons across elementary and secondary schools and universities. Video conferences to be organised in late August and early September 2020 will allow teaching staff to learn more about how they can use the Office platform to improve teaching delivery.

Office 365’s on-line teaching tools are already available free of charge to all interested educational institutions, and schools and universities can use them to offer distance learning and move all instruction online. The Office 365 package comes with the Teams collaboration platform adapted to the needs of distance learners and teachers, OneDrive and SharePoint that help users organise and share documents, online versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, and many other applications.
