To support rapid adoption of M365 during the COVID-19 crisis, Microsoft is hosting online training sessions in both English and French. The sessions are intended for GC employees and aims to help with building the skills to support the adoption of Teams and M365. Topics to be covered will include:
- Intro to Teams
- Using Chat, Channels, Activity, Meetings
- Coordination of meetings, activities and more
The sessions will be offered in two formats, pre-recorded and live. However, both feature live moderation to answer your questions in real-time. Find a date and time below that works for you.
Live Training Sessions
Hosted by Microsoft, these sessions are delivered by both online moderators and a team responding to questions received via chat in real-time throughout the lesson. Up to 10,000 participants can join per session but NO registration is required. All sessions are 60 minutes unless otherwise indicated. Please remember to stay off the VPN and join using your personal device.

Plain Language, clear and simple
Plain language writing is a technique of organizing information in ways that make sense to the reader. It uses straightforward, concrete, familiar words. You can use these techniques to adapt what you have to say to the reading abilities of the people who are likely to read your document. Using plain language to explain concepts and procedures involves using examples that relate to your reader’s experience.
