  1. Hi Jeff, Really enjoying the series so far. Have them on in the car for my commute. Love the idea of helping readers with Learning Tools for OneNote. I have just downloaded it. Brilliantly simple and easy to use. Have already organised a meeting with our SEND co-ordinator.
    If you would like the perspective of being an MIEE from the UK I would love to share what we are doing in terms of O365.

    • HI Alex,

      Thank you so much for listening to the show and taking the time to write a comment here. I think it’s important that we learn about the MIE program on all corners of the world. Let’s see what we can do to have you on the program sometime soon.
