Rebecca: Hi, I am Rebecca Brayton and welcome to WatchMojo.com. And today Jason Brommet of Microsoft will be showing students how to do their homework more quickly and efficiently.
Jason: And so I am going through today a little bit of the on the traditional PC Form factor and traditional applications that were I used, but then how that has now spread. And so what I have got open here is Microsoft Office window and traditionally and certainly when I was back in school everything is paper based. And so Office Window it really it takes that form factor extends it into the digital age.
So you can see here through the left hand navigation are a number of notebooks that are created. Across the top is sections, here I created this an area that is my school work. I know that I have got project that I need to do on Shakespeare and so I created a subpage for online research.
What that does is it both captures that screen image, but also gives you the tag and you will know where that came from. So that when you it is time to get and published and author about report, you do no longer need to try to remember that.
Taking it at one step further and harnessing on the introduction some of the technologies today is moving from the PC forum factors with a conditional buy a platform.
I can capture my notes directly on my mobile device and then sink it directly with my one notes extending the office experience now from the PC to the mobile device and now to the web. This is something called Office Live Workspace and this is a free service that allows of the students or parents or on certainly small businesses as well is be able to share and collaborate online.
In this scenario, I have to create presentation on Shakespeare. I have got a note to office online and located a template of PowerPoint. So you can see the very traditional PowerPoint structure of slides, but with O having the open office and so anyone who does not have office on their PC, you will still able to go in and view this directly within the web browser where really becomes powerful the immigration directly with Microsoft office.
It is good now. Open Microsoft office PowerPoint is the traditional application on my computer. It is going to open that file from the workspace that I have uploaded and now I am going to be like create, edit and author, any of content directly within this PowerPoint presentation.
Once I have gone through and done on my work, I have got classmates that I need to show this with an order to get the report to finish. And what you see here is what referred to this Office Live workspace. So this is free download available then allows you to both open and save files directly to your Office Live workspace.
One of the interesting features with an Office Live workspace is the activity module. Today a lot of people are familiar with based corporate and ability to go online understands who is logging in and logging out. The activity panel actually allows you to keep track of that and then also the ability to set up email notifications with today is very much the same like Facebook it does.
So again, there is a harness thing that power of the mobile device of those emails may come through in my mobile phone and so again harness in the power of the PC on the traditional applications for web as well as the mobile device to have an absolutely innovative and see most experience.
