Setting Up Office 365

Standout Education will help you get started with Office 365

We will help you register, install and configure Office 365, add users and assign licenses so you are up and running as quickly and cost effectively as possible.
We will provide basic training for teachers and administrators and deliver a one-hour overview presentation for all staff.

What’s included?

Before you start your Office 365 implementation, we will help you:
• Identify your school or college needs and how Office 365 can help meet them – we will look at learning and teaching, technology and administration
• Identify which features of Office 365 will be required by staff and students
• Explore the plans and licenses available to ensure you get what is right for you
• Decide on sign-on processes
• Develop a roadmap for implementation

Once you have a plan for implementing Office 365, we can ensure success by:
• Registering you for Office 365
• Creating users
• Assigning licenses
• Managing permissions
• Providing you with sample PowerShell scripts for managing users, licenses and permissions
• Setting up DNS records
• Configuring the services to meet your needs
• Setting up relevant SharePoint sites
• Training staff (our basic package includes one day of training; we suggest a session for administrators, a session for teachers and a one-hour presentation for all staff)
• Providing you with training and information guides on existing and new features

Duration: 2 days (suggested)
We are happy to alter the content and length of our Office 365 sessions to fit in with your requirements.
