We’re pleased to announce the availability of Learning Tool Interoperability (LTI) support for Office Mix and the addition of Microsoft to the IMS Global Learning Consortium as a Contributing Member. In this role, Microsoft represents the needs of our users as we participate in future standards development work.
With our new Office Mix first run experience, we bring a sense of welcoming and enlightenment to the basics. The tutorials include “What is Office Mix,” “Screen Recording” and “Publish and Share.” We’ve also included an easy way for you to “Create Your First Mix.” In the coming months, we’ll be adding more tutorials.
In the May 2015 update of Office 365 we are proud to introduce a new core feature to Power Map: Custom Regions. The Custom Regions feature allows data to be mapped to the regions that matter most to you, even if they are not the traditional zip code, county, state or country regions. Custom regions are useful for plotting data on sales districts, school districts, congressional districts, land lot development,…
We currently provide customers with a range of logs on their user interactions with content in Office 365. This provides customers with visibility that is important for meeting business policies, as well as regulations. Today we are announcing the expansion of these logs to include the majority of user, admin and policy related actions across Exchange Online and SharePoint Online in Office 365.
For the purpose of maximizing data security and privacy for Office 365 customers, we have engineered the service to so that nearly all service operations performed by Microsoft are either fully automated so there is no human interaction, or the human involvement is abstracted away from Office 365 customer content. As a result, there are very few activities requiring any direct involvement by a Microsoft engineer.
It was going to be a hectic week and Justin Harbin, instructional designer at Lancaster Bible College was set to be out of class during a very critical time. Harbin turned to Office Mix to conduct a full week’s worth of blended classroom lectures, while he missed class to be with his wife and newborn daughter.
While advances in technology over the last 30 years have been immense, the state of the art in email non-delivery reports (NDRs) is still just an homage to 1982—overly technical and ill-designed for the modern email user. But that’s about to change. Over the next several months, NDRs generated by Office 365 will be enhanced to make it easier to understand and quickly fix message delivery issues.
