Collaborating with OneDrive and OneNote

Office 365 offers a new way of storing files.  Because they are in the Cloud you can access them anywhere, have a synchronised local copy and version control is handled automatically. You can share documents with colleagues so that everyone has access to the same copy of the document, and you can collaborate in real time. This can hugely reduce email and errors.

In this half-day course, we will show you how to use OneDrive and OneNote so you can collaborate more effectively with your colleagues.

We are currently only holding our public programme online, delivered as Live Online Interactive Learning via GoToTraining. We are able to offer classroom sessions for private bookings only — please get in touch for availability.

The training was very slow, and the trainer didn't seem to know about some of the functions she was training us on - I had to tell her how some of the things worked.

Coronavirus Update

Due to current government guidelines we have temporarily closed our training centre in London. All of our staff are now working remotely, and all classroom training has been postponed until 29th May.

We have developed a fantastic range of interactive webinars delivered by our experienced facilitators, Live Online Learning. We understand that for many people this will be the first time that they have worked from home and so we have developed short 1.5-2 hour sessions to help you adjust to this new situation. You can see details of our IT Skills live online learning sessions here and our Personal Development sessions here – or we can adapt any of our classroom training into webinar format for you.

For the latest government guidance, please visit the website.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will advise all clients if the situation changes.

If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to arrange some online training, our friendly team are available Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. You can leave a message on 020 7375 7300 or email us at
