The OffPerts are a group on young people with a passion for new technology and making sure everyone has access to the very best classroom experience. Together with their teacher sponsor, OffPerts put together tutorial videos on how to use a variety of different software and service offerings. As Office 365 is not only a fairly new piece of technology, but also arguably the best collaboration platform available we currently plan to concentrate firmly on this for the foreseable future whilst building up our resources and help videos.
The videos they produce are scripted, filmed and produced by them offering simple, practicle advice on the benefits of using different features, and step by step guides on how to do it. We also host virtual training events via Lync and Skype to help other schools get the biggest benefit they can from its use.
