Lunch & Learn - OneDrive versus Dropbox
Join us for our next Lunch & Learn on Thursday, November 18th at noon to gain a better understanding of OneDrive versus Dropbox. 

Choosing the right cloud storage service is tough, especially when you have to pick between the most popular clouds in the world. In this Dropbox vs OneDrive comparison, we’ll look at how these cloud storage services fare across several categories — including collaboration, file sharing, storage options, pricing and more.

We are taking a break in December and the series will resume Thursday, January 27th with the topic OneNote versus Evernote.  

One registration will allow you to attend all sessions. If you have registered for any of the sessions you will receive the links to access all future sessions.

Lunch & Learn - iMIS Series
The applications team will also be hosting monthly Lunch & Learns on the second Tuesday of every month. Join us on November 9th to learn more about Event Attendance Tracking, Survey, and Certificates

Mark your calendars for the upcoming Lunch & Learn sessions: 
  • December 14th : Creating IQAs with dynamic HTML output 
  • January 11th : Send an email to state rep for new joins 
  • February 8th : AT’s Lite LMS  
Microsoft Whiteboard Gets An Upgrade 

As we all embrace the 'new normal' and companies move towards hybrid work arrangements with more employees working from home, Microsoft is making it easier to share ideas with a series of new updates for Microsoft Whiteboard.

Microsoft Whiteboard is an online collaboration tool that allows users to brainstorm and come up with new ideas in a shared visual space. The app can be used on its own or in conjunction with Microsoft Teams. 

The new Whiteboard features a brand new user interface that combines a clean, modern look and feel with improved functionality. The upgrade also makes the app's features easier to access and find.

If you missed our Lunch & Learn on Whiteboard or would like to learn more about the app please reach out to your AT consultant.
