During a typical photo shoot, you may capture multiple images that are very similar to each other. For example, you might have five almost identical headshots or two similar cake-cutting images. You know you'll only use one of them, but you keep the others around just in case you change your mind.| Read more »

Today’s post about Microsoft Office 365 was written by Jim McKinnon, vice president and chief information officer at The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company.
Jim McKinnon joined Goodyear as an IT intern for the company’s England subsidiary and spent the next four decades working his way up to vice president and CIO. McKinnon, who retires this month, isn’t ending his 40-year career on cruise control—instead he’s been in a pedal-to-the-metal drive to change IT at Goodyear.
I grew up a working-class boy.
My father was a tire builder at Goodyear. There was no work after the war in Dundee, Scotland, so he went south to England. He married a local girl, raised a family, and instilled strong values and principles in his children. I started as an intern at Goodyear in the IT department, as an analyst/programmer. It was a great job. It’s still a great job. I’m really proud that I’ve gone from IT intern to chief information officer of the company... | Read more »
Today’s post was written by Kirk Koenigsbauer, corporate vice president for the Office 365 Client Apps and Services team.

In the same way we’ve tuned Office software to be great on different devices, we’ve also carefully thought through the use cases and business implications involved. We’ve analyzed how our products are used in the real world,... | Read more »
Today’s post on OneNote for Education was written by Jerry Bradford, director of technology at Washington County Career Center, Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert.
When adverse weather affects Ohio’s schools, often closing is the only option. The Ohio Department of Education permits five calamity days per year before schools are required to make up additional missed days. On top of the five calamity days, schools can also implement up to three blizzard bag days. Blizzard bags are online assignments delivered by individual schools. Teachers post blizzard bag assignments to a school portal and students must submit their assignments no later than 10 days after returning to school. Blizzard bags must contain content relevant to each class on a student’s schedule and meet the same academic expectations and rigor as a normal school day.
For students at... | Read more »
