Free registration required

Executive Summary

At Ecole de Management de Lyon (EM Lyon Business School), students learn about real-world uses of information technology in business. Just as today's business workplace has become increasingly decentralized, with employees using technology to stay connected while working remotely, EM Lyon students need to remain in contact with peers and complete group projects while working at off-campus internships and other assignments. Students found this difficult using traditional desktop software, so the school explored options for building a robust collaborative platform that would facilitate communication while also teaching students about real-world information sharing strategies. By carefully analyzing student needs and taking advantage of the power and flexibility of Microsoft Office Groove 2007, EM Lyon created a virtual office solution that met its requirements and was easy to use.
