Information Technology Services (ITS) announced the launch of the AUP Office 365 project in March 2016. We are pleased to announce that the project is progressing well with rolling out Office 365 to the early adopter users, well underway. We are now getting ready to move to the next stage of the project. For more information, see the timeline page.
We embarked on this project with a simple goal: to enable AUP users to benefit from cloud computing with a wide range of technology tools and applications to better achieve their educational and professional goals. Recognizing that all of these tools and technology comes with challenges, we have been organizing weekly events to raise campus awareness about the benefits of using the Office 365 platform by conducting workshops and live demos. the events aimed to encourage faculty, students, and staff to get started with Office 365 platform and to provide us their feedback as we prepare to rollout the Office 365 to the entire AUP community users.
We would like to thank so many of you who have accepted to be the early adopters of the project or simply have shown continued interest and support for the project.
We will be closing our weekly AMEX Office 365 with a special program on Thursday 28th at 12:00 to 4:00 pm in the AMEX and Combes lobby and continue with an exciting social event in the AMEX.
You are cordially invited to join us for the Office 365 information event at the AMEX starting 4:00 pm. Refreshment will be served; we hope to see you there!
If you cannot join us at the AMEX, please note that we continue to welcome you in our weekly Office 365 open house in the ITS office (P. Landrieu) every Tuesday afternoon.
