How I use social media | Full Circle Associates

Nancy White

80% of my working time is mediated using social media, from Skype, Google Docs, Twitter, Drupal, Moodle, Elluminate and an every changing myriad of other tools. Without Skype, email, Google docs, Flickr, and publishing on demand, this book would not have been born.

Creative Facilitation – the Book!

Indeed the whole process was a global collaboration – between Australia, the UK and USA – made possible by technology, particularly long Skype calls! Exactly two years ago, I spent six weeks with my ankle in plaster after an operation. With nothing better to do, I wrote a book.

When a Client Only Wants Part of Office 365

Michael Sampson - Currents

OOS is designed to work with SharePoint Server 2016, Exchange Server 2016 and Skype for Business Server 2015. Not all clients want to buy into the complete service offering that is Office 365.

For example, consider a client that: – uses an LDAP server for access and authentication.
