Look out for the new M365 Hub arriving within Teams
Mon, 25 Jul 2022

In the coming days, staff will have access to an exciting new way of learning digital skills across the Microsoft 365 product set.

M365 Hub is a new training platform being launched within the council, offering advice and guidance for the Microsoft applications many of us use daily.

The platform will be available directly within your Teams environment by clicking the new 'M365 Hub' icon when it appears on the left hand rail, shown in the image below.

Please note, the roll out may take a few days so please be patient if your colleagues have access to the icon before it appears on your device.

When you open the platform you will be presented with the options shown below.

The M365 Hub is a great place for staff to access bite-sized training content relating to Microsoft applications.

This content is updated regularly as new features are released which makes the Hub an excellent place to search for current and concise guidance. The platform will be available to use entirely on demand, with staff being able to learn what they want to know, when they need to know it.

Jayne Wilcock, learning and skills planning and commissioning manager, said: "For staff who enjoy self-paced learning, you will find help with apps such as Outlook, Word, Excel, Teams and OneDrive, as these will all be included on the new platform.

"We know, of course, that many people prefer to learn with a tutor and with other people, so the range of learning opportunities delivered by the Learning, Skills and Workforce Development team will still be available for those who want to join a course. This can be done either in person or virtually through MS Teams."

Watch out for these new self-help opportunities becoming available to help you improve your Microsoft 365 skills via various council communication channels and through the Learning Opportunities intranet page here.
