Pros

It is easy to load content and teach from. I like the ability to have students appshare their screens and my ability to take control of their computer if needed to help them.
I like that it is geared toward educators, unlike many other webinar software. Its whiteboard, integration with Blackboard for ease of use, and breakout rooms are fantastic for teaching.
I like that fact that i can communicate with my professor live and that is wonderful. I like the way our assignments are already posted and all you have to do is just click and start your assignment.

Pros

Easy to use, great features to enhance productivity, allows you to work virtually anywhere will lots of storage space, great customer support, great solution ideal for different company sizes.
I love the ease of use especially for Excel, I love that I can go straight from home to work with Onedrive and nothing beats Word for creating documents.
It provides you with all of the portable sharing features of Google Docs, but with the awesome Microsoft programs and their functionality, so that's what's really good about it.

Cons

Students have missed entire live sessions because they were unable to connect during the specified class time. It has been a very frustrating experience.
The text box that students use on Blackboard is terrible. The autocorrect of the text box is unable to recognize a lot of words and claims that it is not a real word and gives a red line underneath.
The installer for Collaborate occasionally causes students issues, esp. if they do not have admin rights on their machine, or they miss seeing the download sitting in their bottom tray.

Cons

Storing our data in the clouds makes it more vulnerable to security threat. It is expensive because we have to pay for subscription for the duration of use.
There is nothing I dislike about the software. My problem is customer service when I have a simple question, I can barely understand the representatives.
As odd as this sounds, the one thing that irritates me about M365 products is that they are constantly being updated.
