OneDrive Collaborative Space

Your Office 365 OneDrive storage/collaborative space offers 25GB of space for class assignments, images and other files. You can also:
  • access your files from any device using a browser
  • share files with fellow students or a project team or send a link to an instructor
  • create new documents and edit stored Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote files using the Office Online feature
  • sync your files with any Windows device

Lync is a communications program for instant messaging, conferencing and desktop sharing. Lync is great for working with project groups–especially if members are scattered near and far. See the Office 365 software page for download information.


The Sites feature is disabled for students and only available to email administrators.
