Virtual Teams Project at NUI Galway – uses Office 365

Virtual Teams Project at NUI Galway – uses Office 365

When we first launched Office 365 for education back in June 2012, UMass Amherst and NUI Galway recorded a showcase video with us, highlighting their use of our Office 365 platform .  If you have not seen that, check it out!

Following on from this, NUI Galway students just recorded a video about their experiences as part of a final year project.  In it, they discussed what they were able to achieve and their takeaways.  I will let the video speak for itself:


The collaboratively run course now spans 3 institutions: UMass Amherst, taught by Prof. Gino Sorcinelli, NUI Galway, taught by Murray Scott and Amr BadrElDin at the American University in Cairo.


As I watched the video, I picked up a few themes and benefits:

  • Learning from anywhere and with anyone
  • Building virtual relationships and teams in geographically and culturally diverse and dispersed teams
  • Workforce-ready for a global workforce by linking the classroom to the real world

I cannot wait to see where this course and its students go next.


  • Great video! Loved hearing about how student's are leveraging Office 365.
