Cobweb is delighted to be partnering with LightUp 365, delivering on-demand video support and training to enable users to get the most from Microsoft Office 365.

LightUp 365 offers libraries categorised according to application, and comprising 2,000+ out-of-the-box, fully searchable, bite-sized ‘how-to’ videos integrated into the Office 365 experience.

The tutor forum utilises just-in-time (JIT) learning, defined as when training is available on-demand, integrated into the application supported. This method has been proven to be efficient and practical, as well as cost-effective, removing the need for formal training with the associated time and cost burden.

Training is available for all Office 365 applications, and LightUp undertakes to develop and deploy material as quickly as possible following release of new Office 365 features, and to revise training for existing applications to reflect major updates.

Businesses can customise the user experience, developing learning paths and campaigns, as well as creating libraries to host their own training materials, and administrators/trainers can track what users have/haven't watched to monitor training requirements.

Oliver Moazzezi, Cobweb’s Microsoft Office Servers and Services MVP, says, “Introducing new software can be challenging for a business. Employees can be resistant to change, particularly if extensive, time-consuming up-front education is required. And yet it’s essential that new applications are fully adopted and utilised.

“LightUp 365’s training videos provide your users with the most up to date and informative insight in to how to maximize use of Office 365.”

Martin Harwar, MD LightUp 365, comments, “In addition to providing end users with all the training they need to be productive with Office 365, our approach provides proven returns on investment. If a user saves just over 30 minutes a year, the solution will have paid for itself. And of course, most users save hundreds of hours over the year.

“On top of that, the solution can reduce helpdesk and service desk incidents by up to 60%, which is a hidden but even more valuable return on investment.”

In addition to providing training for Office 365, LightUp 365 provides learning videos for other Microsoft products, applications and operating systems, including, for example, office 2016 Desktop and Windows 10.
