Office 2016 and Windows 10

June 9, 2016

Do you remember the Microsoft slogan “Where do you want to go today?”

There have been times that your answer might have been: “Far, far away from my computer” but those days are long gone. In today’s technology marketplace, new releases by the software giant are met with anticipation.

Two such releases – Microsoft Office 2016 for both the PC & Mac and Windows 10 are positioned to make your computing experience more productive. ITS is starting the gradual rollout of these products on campus computers starting with Office 2016 during the summer months and extending to a selective rollout of Windows 10 starting in the August. Our training sessions will help facilitate your transition to these products. In case you can’t make time to be at these sessions, they will be recorded and made available on the ITS training site. All sessions will be held in the Pearson Library Rm 130.

Our first series will be an overview of the new software and features, additional sessions will be scheduled into fall:
