General Information

Office 365 ProPlus is a new subscription plan for Office 365. It enables users or businesses to extend their Office productivity software (including Word, Powerpoint, Excel, and others) to allow installations to up to 5 different devices per user. The account is tied to the user, not to any one device, so it allows seamless interaction between working on home devices and on mobile devices. It also allows users to deactivate their software in the case that any one of their devices is compromised or if a person leaves the business.

Benefits:

  • You answer questions in private – no need for you to raise your hand and be called upon. 
  • The answers are collected almost instantly. This allows you and your instructor to make efficient use of your time together in the classroom.
  • The system (TurningPoint Cloud) will give a summary of all the answers submitted after the question ends, giving you and your instructor valuable and immediate feedback. With this feedback, your instructor will know what points need more discussion and explanation, and which points are understood.
