Looking, not sharing
The most common request the Learning Innovation team receive are emails from staff asking for permission to share our calendar with them so they can book a meeting with us when all they really need to do use the Scheduling function that comes as a standard feature in MS Office 2007. This post topic has really nothing to do with blended learning but we thought you’d be interested in this functionality which at the very least will save you lots of time and frustration.
Trying to ‘herd cats’
With so many meetings being organised throughout the Institute, it’s important to organise these as efficiently as possible. Sometimes it’s hard to find a time when all attendees are available to meet, the good news is it doesn’t have to be. I’ve created a video explaining how to schedule meetings in Outlook 2007 and also how to check that all your attendees are free at that same time. This will avoid meetings being proposed for times when some attendees are already busy, creating a bit of back and forward between attendee and organiser, enjoy….
We really enjoy your comments so don’t be afraid to leave one below.
