This week, our blog series focuses on Cloud Productivity in the Education system. Today's blog will focus specifically on Educators, but be sure to check out upcoming blogs on Students and Administrators in the education system.
The challenges of an educator are varied. In order to move forward, the education system needs to evolve as a whole. Educators can help move the movement forward by integrating learning experiences, keeping information up to date, and customizing learning plans to their students. By using Cloud-based services like Microsoft’s Office 365, educators can tackle these subjects in a more detailed way!
Office 365 helps educators put in place a virtual classroom environment. These virtual classrooms help educators reach more students and provide more personalized educational experiences. O365 has an abundance of tools to enable this: Skype for Business enables educators and students to communicate in a great number of methods including instant messaging and web conferencing. SharePoint enables educational institutions to create a secure website that educators and students can use to store, organize, share, and access information from almost any device.
Data-Driven Learning Plans
With Office 365’s Power BI, a cloud-based business analytics service that enables you to visualize and analyze data with greater speed, efficiency, and understanding, educators can better analyze students’ performances, and adequately adjust their personal teaching methods to better benefit them. By properly keeping track of their students’ individual and group performances, teachers can properly adapt their teaching method to both individuals and groups.
Office 365 enables educators to keep up shared files and notebooks for their students. Not only do these shared lessons and notebooks improve the teachers’ organization, they also enhance the sharing of information to their students. What’s more, it enables the teacher to stay aware of student progress to provide help more quickly and easily.
Clearly, moving to a Cloud-based infrastructure, namely Office 365, can not only provide educators with amazing tools to improve processes, but can serve to improve the education system as a whole. This was the first of our 3-part series this week on Cloud productivity in education system. Stay tuned for our upcoming blogs on Students and Administrators in this system.
