Learn the basics of Office 365 groups, where teams can collaborate easily using a single shared account for Outlook, OneDrive, Skype, and SharePoint.
- [David] Hi and welcome to this course on learning the basics of Office 365 Groups. I'm David Rivers. Office 365 Groups is yet another powerful tool from Microsoft, designed to make it easier for teams to communicate, plan, and collaborate with one another. This course is designed for end-users. In other words, those who will create, manage, and join groups for the purpose of better communication and collaboration amongst team members. We'll begin by reviewing what Office 365 Groups are and how they compare to other types of groups out there.
Then we'll move on to managing groups, as a group owner or a group member, before we move on to covering many of the different options you have for communicating with group members. Lastly, we'll spend some time exploring how to collaborate with group members using Notes and sharing files within the group. So what do you need to know to get the most out of this course? We'll talk about that next.
