Extend Microsoft Teams in independent schools with Cloud Box – demonstration

We are hosting a free webinar for independent schools, focusing on how you can successfully extend blended learning in Microsoft Teams with our Cloud Box solution, without compromising your high standard of teaching and learning.  

One of the main challenges we see independent schools face when rolling out new technology is achieving seamless user adoption.  

Typically, there is a central group of staff who are confident with technology that embraces the new software straight away. However, there’s always a percentage that gets left behind due to a lack of proper support, training and guidance.  

Students are left with learning resources interspersed across several different platforms and mediums and little-to-know cohesion in how they’re accessing learning across different subjects.  

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated this problem, especially after the UK government announced that all schools needed to provide digital learning resources to students. This led to schools signing up to platforms like Microsoft 365 with no real long-term plan or strategy.

In an upcoming free webinar, designed especially for independent schools, we give you a strategy for adopting and extending Microsoft Teams successfully.  

During the session, we’ll run through the key steps we take with independent schools across the UK to help them roll out Teams seamlessly; everything from communicating your initial vision and setting milestones to delivering training and measuring user adoption. 

“By working with Cloud Design Box, we were able to make a smooth transition to the platform, as well as make navigation and provision of Teams and SharePoint sites easier for teachers to get on board with.” – The King’s School, Canterbury. 

Our webinar takes place on Microsoft Teams from 1pm – 2pm GMT on 26 November 2021. 

Everyone who works in an independent school is welcome to join, whether you’re already using Microsoft Teams or considering adopting it in the future.

SharePoint Master Page for iPhone HTML 5 Web App

iPhone Web AppIn my last post, I showed how to create an iPhone web app using HTML5. Recently I have been working on constructing a HTML5 SharePoint Master Page that also works as an iPhone web app.
I managed to do this by downloading Randy Drisgill’s Starter Master Pages Download Here
I then removed as many tags as possible without breaking the publishing Master Page. Changed the doc type, added the meta and link tags (see previous post). This allowed me to create a HTML5 compliant SharePoint Master page which also worked as an iPhone web app. Further customisation is needed to convert the TMG/ISA login form to a mobile friendly smart phone page if you are using an authenticated SharePoint 2010 site.
