Microsoft Office 365 logo

UNCG is moving to Microsoft 365 as the single destination for file storage and collaboration tools currently provided by Google Workspace, Box, and Zoom.

Information Technology Services (ITS) invites all students, faculty, and staff to participate in a survey about how collaborative tools are used at UNCG. The survey consists of about 20 questions and will take no longer than 15 minutes to complete.

This is an opportunity to share your thoughts about the transition and provide insight that allows ITS to better support the University community during the migration. Your feedback is valuable whether you use campus technology a little or a lot.

You can access the Microsoft 365 Collaboration Survey from now until Friday, December 2, 2022.

What we learn is critical to the success of this initiative and your participation is greatly appreciated.

See the Technology Initiatives website for more information about this and other ITS initiatives.

School of Education instructors (faculty, lecturers, adjuncts, teaching assistants, etc.) are invited to drop-in and explore the many features that are available within Microsoft Teams. UNCG is moving to one video-conferencing platform, Microsoft Teams and everyone has been encouraged to become early adopters and start to engage with using Teams for virtual meetings. By joining this session, you will be given the opportunity to explore the tools to help get a better understanding of how the program works.

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to receive a link to an upcoming session.

Happening every 3rd Friday of the month, the monthly Learning and Technology webinar series features faculty, librarians, and learning professionals from around the UNC system. Presenters share innovative pedagogical approaches, best practices using learning technologies, and valuable digital resources. This program provides an opportunity to engage with colleagues across the system and foster meaningful conversations around timely topics.

Each webinar shares relevant updates from the System Office, best practices found across the System, an outside speaker, insights into new technologies, and, occasionally, the opportunity for us to have deeper discussions on a specific topic or research area.
