Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365)

Microsoft 365 is a Microsoft subscription service that ensures you always have the most up-to-date modern productivity tools from the Office suite. New features or functions are added progressively with the monthly subscription purchase.

You can install Microsoft 365 on your PC and it also includes web-based access to the traditional Office applications like Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. You have the ability to access them from your PC, phone, tablet or other mobile devices. Additionally, you get access to a wide range of other web-based apps and services like Teams, Yammer, Stream, Sway and more.

Check out our Microsoft 365 Essentials course – a one-day program that covers everything you need to get up and running with Microsoft 365.
