Supporting collaboration at Concordia

The consultations held while developing Concordia’s Digital Strategy revealed needs from many members of the community for a collaboration platform:

  • a place to share documents and information;
  • develop community of practice resources;
  • self-publish; and
  • facilitate work across administrative silos.

As a result, a “Collaboration Platform” joint project with IITS was put into motion to find a solution to meet these needs.

After reviewing many options, Concordia selected Office 365 as the institutional platform best able to support collaboration at the university.

Additionally, a key element of Concordia’s Digital Strategy is the Digital Capabilities project, which aims to continually develop these skills among Concordia faculty, staff and students as part of a lifelong learning pursuit.


To help Concordia’s faculty and staff become familiar with this institutional platform, we’re organizing two half-day virtual Office 365 “unconference” sessions:

August 21, 2020 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

September 25, 2020 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
