There has been a buzz among Texas A&M employees lately. The center of that buzz? The launch of the Microsoft 365 Training series. 

Texas A&M soft-launched the Microsoft 365 platform in 2020, at the start of the pandemic. The platform’s powerful collaboration and meeting features enabled employees and students to continue learning and working remotely. 

To help campus members take full advantage of the platform, the Division of Information Technology partnered with Microsoft to provide an extensive training series to help them fully utilize all apps that are now available in Microsoft 365. 

For those who’ve attended some of the earlier sessions, the benefits of this platform are crystal clear. 

“Microsoft 365 is going to increase productivity and make collaboration exponentially easier across the institution,” said Christopher Brooks, an accountant for Texas A&M Finance. “I can see how this will help me excel in my current and future roles.”

Designed specifically for Texas A&M employees, these training sessions help users gain the most out of the powerful new productivity and collaboration features. Each training is hosted in Microsoft Teams and all sessions are recorded and available online if campus members are unable to attend live. Additional training sessions for faculty and researchers will be available in the fall! 

Check out some of our upcoming training sessions!
