On July 10th at our UK HQ in Thames Valley Park, Reading, Berks, we’ll be holding an event in conjunction with the University of West London to bring all interested parties together to showcase and discuss Office 365 Education, and how by harnessing its power institutions can provide a better social learning environment.

In the summer of 2012 The University of West London set out to harness the immense potential of the free cloud-based suite of collaboration tools, provided by Office 365 Education, to create a personalised, interactive, social platform to support the institution’s mission to raise aspiration through the pursuit of excellence. Allowing students to combine social learning with academic study.  The University won the UCISA Award for Excellence, 2012 for the service they have created.

This event will provide detail on what UWL wanted to achieve, how they accomplished it and a demonstration of capability and features. In addition Microsoft will share latest features of Office 365 Education.
