Spreadsheets allow you to enter, store and analyse data. They can be used in teaching to create class datasets that allow students to work together on a pool of data. All staff and students have access to Office365 which includes Microsoft Excel. To start using Excel either start the application on your device or go to portal.office.com, enter your Victoria email address, sign in if asked and click Excel.
Spreadsheets are a great way to organise and store data. If you use Excel it can be used as a stand-alone application on a computer or device. It can also be used in a web browser by logging on to Office365. Accessing Excel via the web allows for realtime collaboration in student labs and tutorials. Individuals or groups of students can generate data and enter it into a class spreadsheet. This can then be used as the basis of a lab report or assignment. With the right setup students can access the spreadsheet off campus via a link in Blackboard.
