Following on from the Deploying Windows 7 Live Meeting last month, Richard Lane (who’s our resident techie in the Education team) is hosting a pair of Office 2010 Live Meetings in July. As it is a Live Meeting (or, its alternative moniker, a ‘webinar’), you don’t need to leave your desk, and no travel is needed – you can simply logon to the Live Meeting website, and you can join in, and ask questions as we go along.

Richard and I debated the timing for these meetings – should we try and squeeze them in before the end of term – and decided that you’d probably have more time to join once term’s over, and you’ve got more control over your schedule!

Microsoft Office 2010 introduces rich and powerful new ways to express and share ideas, which matches the way that students are working today, and the needs of teachers. Join this webcast for a demonstration of key features that will resonate with both students and teachers alike.

  • Discover how Office 2010 will enable you to bring ideas to life with advanced video and picture editing, broadcast capability in Microsoft PowerPoint 2010, easy document preparation through the new Microsoft Office Backstage view, and visualise data in new ways with Microsoft Excel 2010.

      • See the new Office Web Apps 2010 – online companions to Word, Excel, Powerpoint and OneNote – which enable you to review and edit documents from a variety of web browsers.

          • Understand how students can collaborate better by taking shared notes or co-authoring documents in real-time with a fellow student.

          This session will be mainly demonstration based – there will also be the opportunity to have any questions you have answered.
