OC Portfolios Beta Test

This week, we began a new initiative to launch the OCPortfolios website. This new tool will allow us to maintain and celebrate our learning environment while serving to connect our organization in a new way. Currently, we have so many incredible leaders and teachers whose talents may not be widely known. The field teams they work with are daily blessed by their skills but hundreds or even thousands of miles separate them from their fellow workers. This tool will allow us to make our skills and resumes not just visible but searchable to the rest of our organization, allowing for an increase in collaboration and mutual edification. As an added benefit, this tool will allow Personnel to keep up to date, digital, accessible records on our entire team making their lives easier and our documents cleaner!

We’re currently testing this program with about 25 OC employees and will keep you updated on the benefits and viability of the program. For now, here’s a screenshot of the database. Let us know what you think!

New Course: Using Office 365

office-365-iconOffice 365 is a massive collection of applications and services offered by Microsoft – the creators of Windows and the popular Office Suite.  As an OC employee you have access to an incredible amount of applications to foster productivity and collaboration through the Office 365 for Business Premium plan.

So much is possible with the Office 365 making it one of the best option in productivity tools on the internet.  With so many apps, services, and features comes a rather steep learning curve.  Fortunately, Microsoft provides a lot of documentation, training, videos, etc. to help their users use each app to it’s fullest potential.

This course shares

  • what you get with your 365 account
  • how to get help and find the information you need
  • some helpful websites and videos
  • an archive of one-page guides for each app or service

Use this course as a reference when you run into problems or take it now in preparation for the Office 365 rollout in OC.
