This course will serve as an introduction to the features in several Office 365 applications. To learn more about each of these applications, there are several other training courses available. This video explains where to go to find more detailed training for the applications and tools in this course.
- [Instructor] In this course, you will see no fewer than eight different applications or tools that come with Office 365, including Outlook, SharePoint, Teams, OneNote, Skype for Business, and more. There's no way I could adequately teach all of these tools in a training course of this size. Fortunately, you will be able to find complete, dedicated training courses for each of these applications seen in this course by browsing our training library. I want to give you a few examples and I'll start with Outlook, because that one is a little bit different. Outlook is the name of an application that you can install and run on your computer, but it's also the name of the web-based email, calendar, and address book tools that you'll find on the Office 365 website.
You know, certainly you can link the Outlook desktop application to your office 365 account and access your mail, calendar, and address book there, but when we talk about Outlook in this course, we'll be focusing much more on the web-based tool known as Outlook on the web, which is part of the Office 365 website, and we will use the desktop application a little bit as well. So if you want to spend some time learning more about Outlook, you've got a few options. Outlook on the Web Essential Training by Gini von Courter is your complete training course for the mail, calendar, and address book services in Office 365.
If you do want to learn about the desktop application known as Outlook, you should do a search for Outlook 2016, where you'll find Outlook 2016 Essential Training and Outlook for Mac 2016 Essential Training. As you go through these search results, you may also see a course called Outlook.com Essential Training, but that's not related to Office 365 for Business. That is a consumer-level tool that does not have the business-level collaboration tools that we're talking about in this course.
OneNote has a similar situation where it is both a desktop application, but you can also use OneNote on the Office 365 website. You can learn more about OneNote by checking out our course, OneNote 2016 Essential Training. We'll talk about SharePoint in this course, but we're only talking about a few features in a very large platform. For more information about using SharePoint in the context of Office 365 on the web, you should check out SharePoint Online Essential Training. For Teams, you should check out Microsoft Teams Essential Training.
And one piece that we'll talk about in this course that does not have a full essential training course is Microsoft Planner, but if you take a look at Microsoft Planner: First Look, you'll find that it's not a long course, but it does teach the core features in Planner. So instead of trying to completely teach all of these applications, this course can serve as an introduction to the collaboration capabilities available in these applications and across Office 365 in general. If you already know and work with some of your favorite Office 365 tools, then you can start using the techniques that you'll see in this course immediately, and if you've never used these applications, this course will give you an introduction of what's possible, then, if these tools look useful to you, I suggest you checkout some of those other courses to learn more.
So now the stage is set. I hope you're ready to dive in and that you'll keep in mind there's other courses to learn more.
