Shireland Collegiate Academy: moving from private cloud to Office 365 for Edu
The student, parent and teacher journey through school depends on transparency to progress and accessibility to information. The information in this case is student work and progress. Shireland developed a dynamic portal that adjusts with the schoolâ€™s timetabling system so that sites are provisioned and proper permissions are assigned. The focus of this session will be to both showcase the journey from a private SharePoint 2007 cloud into Office 365 for education. Youâ€™ll see how they take advantage of the external sharing capabilities for parental access, how they approached branding, community, social and tagging. Youâ€™ll also hear how they benefit from a unified experience across laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. The remainder of the session will highlight some of where they are extending their system building apps, increasing access of Office at home, furthering parental access, leveraging Lync and more. Lots to learn. Lots of questions to ask. If youâ€™re considering a move to Office 365, this session â€“ even if youâ€™re not in the education industry - will highlight much value on your own journey into the cloud.
