PennO365 is a collaboration platform that provides a full-featured email system with integrated calendaring. PennO365 will become available to SAS faculty and staff in 2015 and will ultimately replace our facstaff.sas email and MeetingMaker calendar systems.
Key features include:
- Convenient web and desktop access to your email and integrated calendar.
- Full-featured web interface for accessing email and calendar (Outlook Web App)
- Access from mobile devices, including iOS and Android-based phones and tablets.
- Integrated anti-spam tools
A major design update will affect all Canvas sites at Penn. To minimize disruption, the change will take place on May 16 (between Commencement and Summer Session I).
Canvas will look different around the periphery, but its functionality and main content areas will not change. For example, menu items that we're now accustomed to find at the top of the window will appear at the left. The updated user interface will also reshape itself responsively to fit on mobile devices.
For a quick introduction, visit the library's blog post, "New Canvas User Interface Coming May 16, 2016".
Many people will find the Library's six-minute video tour of the changes very useful, because it demonstrates use of the new interface.
The library has also created a written version (in PDF) of the information in this video.
