Creativity is a digital literacy skill, Office 365 is your greatest toolbox

Tracy's Office 365 Valo Blog

The 8 Pillars of Digital Literacy lists creativity. Now many people think that they aren’t creative, which couldn’t be further from the truth. You might not have a strong creative talent, but it’s definitely a skill that can be developed and Office 365 is the perfect tool to help you with that.

In this blog, I’ll share a couple of videos to help you build your creativity skill. We’ll take a look at PowerPoint, Sway, Forms, Stream and yes, even OneNote.


First up is PowerPoint. In this video, I cover Design Ideas, Insert Icons, Shapes, using the Eyedropper, Morph and Zoom.

Microsoft Forms

Next up we’ll have some fun with Microsoft Forms. This app is used to build surveys and quizzes and allows for you to add themes as well as automatically displays it in Desktop and Mobile View.

Microsoft Stream

In Stream, I’ll show you how to create a channel and then upload a video for sharing. Here we’ll take a look at how users can interact as well as the transcripts (there’s a surprise, you need to watch this). Also, keep in mind that you can record training videos in PowerPoint.

Microsoft Sway

Microsoft Sway allows us to build beautiful, dynamic reports and brochures. Think PowerPoint, but digital and dynamic. I’ll show you how to add text, images and embed code from your Microsoft Stream Video and Microsoft Form Survey:


Let’s wrap this up with OneNote. You most probably didn’t realize you could be creative in OneNote. Let me show you how.

I hope you had as much fun watching this, as I did creating it.
