Who better to speak to using Office 365 for Administrators than the eLearning Contributor who developed the training herself?

Guest Blog Post by Teresa Potter, eLearning Contributor

Microsoft has been quickly growing its online Office applications since 2008, including adding many collaborative tools. Many schools and organizations have adopted Office 365 for their institution, which brings with it a set of administrator tools. In the spring of 2015, Microsoft made several layout and a few organizational changes to the Office 365 administrator tools with the goal of simplifying these workflows.  Atomic Learning has recently added a series of tutorial videos for new Office 365 administrators to introduce them to the key features of the dashboard as well as give them an understanding of the overall organization of these tools.
