Office 365 news round-up

“Computers in the future may weigh no more than 1.5 tons.”  That was the news flash reported by Popular Mechanics in 1949. Twenty-eight years later, on the brink of the PC revolution, Ken Olson, president, chairman and founder of Digital Equipment Corp. (DEC), a company that manufactured big mainframe computers for business, had another prediction: “There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home.”
Trying to predict the future is always tricky. Things change. And when it comes to technology, they often change rapidly. (When Popular Mechanics made its now laughable forecast about the future of computing, neither the transistor nor the microchip had been invented and the march toward... | Read more »

At TechEd North America 2014 in June in Austin, Texas, Jeremy Thake managed to get some time to sit down with Corey Roth to talk about topics near and dear to Corey’s heart around SharePoint development. Corey is well known for his blog focusing on topics related to SharePoint Search, Business Connectivity Services (BCS), and SharePoint App Model development. Corey talks about how he learned Search and BCS development, as well as how things are going with the Office Store.

Document collaboration made easy

Steve Chew is a senior product marketing manager and Joey Masterson is a senior program manager on the Exchange team.
When people send files as attachments, they’re often looking to collaborate with others and get feedback. Up until now, this has been a cumbersome process. For example, when you email a document to your colleague, she must first download the document to make her edits. Once she’s finished editing the document, she then needs to reattach the file to a new email before sending it back to you. This requires multiple steps and context switches, which can be distracting and time-consuming.
Earlier in the year at the Microsoft Exchange Conference, we announced an enhanced document collaboration experience in Outlook Web App for Office 365 users. Today, we’re thrilled to introduce the first of these enhancements, which aims to improve the way people interact with files as attachments in their email. Now, you will be able to edit a document straight... | Read more »

Administrators help teachers, students reach learn...

Today is the last day of ISTE 2014 but it has become clear from this year’s conference that schools are more connected than ever, incorporating laptops, tablets, and even phones into day-to-day instruction. But these devices need a strong information system to enable administrators to empower teachers to be effective in helping students reach learning objectives. For Cary Academy in North Carolina, that system is OneNote.

Digital textbooks in OneNote stay updated, save money
Cary Academy has used OneNote as part of its 1-to-1 learning environment for nearly a decade. The administration adopted OneNote because it felt intuitive for students and teachers. With OneNote, the technology fades into the background so students can focus on their lessons, not on learning how to use the tool.
Cary Academy chose OneNote for other reasons as well. From the beginning, it was intrigued by... | Read more »

Call Quality Methodology scorecard for Lync Server

Andrew Sniderman and Jens Trier Rasmussen are program managers for Lync.
The Lync team wants your users to be delighted about the quality of every Lync call they make. We built the new Call Quality Methodology (CQM) scorecard to help you reach this goal. The CQM scorecard was released in the June update of the Lync Network Guide. The Call Quality Methodology is described in Appendix C of the guide. The scorecard is an Excel spreadsheet that loads all the CQM query results and creates a number of views that will help you analyze and fix call quality problems in your Lync implementation.
A peak into the scorecard
Included in the Network Guide download is a powershell script (CQM.ps1) that automates the execution and collection of the SQL queries discussed in the Network Guide. When you point the scorecard at your data, it will generate a bunch of views so you can get a handle on the... | Read more »

Packaging for Office for Mac 2011 using Composer

This post compliments my presentation at the Apple Summer Bootcamp for iOS and OS X Management held at Hopkins Public Schools in Hopkins, MN, Monday and Tuesday, June 30 and July 1.
Office for Mac 2011 already comes from Microsoft as an Apple Installer package and generally doesn’t need repackaging for most deployment systems. But some extra packaging can make deployment a little more manageable and predictable. For example:

  • Those smallish 128 GB MacBook Airs can benefit from installing fewer language files and just the software that’s absolutely necessary.
  • Volume licenses have been clobbered more than once by poorly tested updaters.
  • One simple file can make configuring Outlook for POP and IMAP accounts a breeze for users.

JAMF Software’s Composer is my packaging tool of choice because it’s simple to understand but still lets me put together some advanced packages. I’ll use it to demonstrate how to create a custom install... | Read more »

Office Mix Is a Game-Changer for Teachers

Last month, Microsoft announced the customer preview of Office Mix, a tool designed to make it easier for teachers to incorporate online content into their lesson plans. Since then, we’ve been gathering feedback about what educators find most useful about the tool and how to make it even better, and we’re sharing what we’ve learned at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference in Atlanta this week. Overall, we were pleasantly surprised to see teachers using Office Mix in ways we hadn’t anticipated (for example, asking students to create their own mixes), and we noted some usage trends that will influence how we evolve the tool in the future.

We all know that students today excel at using their devices and apps on them.  But using this technology to be more organized and collaborative in the classroom isn’t naturally ingrained in most. OneNote is a great app for any device a student brings to class that will build good habits that will last past the time the final bell rings.
The familiar notebook structure of OneNote makes the transition from paper to digital easy for students. The ability to have everything stored in a single place, in an editable, hierarchical format (notebooks, sections, pages, sub-pages, etc.) allows each student to get organized in a way that makes sense for him or herself.

In 1-to-1 classrooms, OneNote gives students the ability to take notes they can easily index and save for continued reference. In classrooms where teachers are presenting with OneNote, they... | Read more »
