NEW Office Online Projects

SIMnet is releasing a suite of Microsoft Office Online compatible projects. These projects have been designed and tested using Microsoft Office Online, the free online version of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. These projects can be used by any subscriber to Office 2019/365 in their web browser.

Note: The Office Online Projects use the same base project as the previously available projects that were designed for the fully installed version of Office for Windows and Mac but they are not the same projects. Online Office does not have the full suite of options available with the locally installed version. Therefore the Office Online Projects have fewer points and do not include all of the same steps. You will need to assign Office Online Projects separately. To view the exact changes involved in each project, download the PDF here:

Assigning an Office Online Project is the same as assigning any other project in SIMnet. However, the Office Online Projects are collected in a separate textbook. Navigate to Projects on the left navigation and select the A Skills Approach – Office Online 365/2019 – Manning Swinson or In Practice – Office Online 365/2019 – Nordell, Graves, Stewart depending on which book series you are using or would like to assign to your students.
