New M365 applications for students

Whiteboard and Planner are now available on the instance for students.

With the Microsoft 365 instance for students of the University of Mannheim, we enable effective collaboration within self-organized learning groups. In addition to Teams, OneDrive, a cloud version of Office 365, OneNote and Lists, the offer now also includes the Whiteboard and Planner applications.

On the digital Whiteboard you can collect and visualize your ideas and results. The Planner application is an easy-to-use project management tool that lets you organize your work, distribute tasks within a team or manage a project.
