Word Online: Word Online is a web-based version of Microsoft Word to create and edit word documents. Multiple users can also work on the same document at once, once it has been shared with others. For full functionality, documents can also be opened offline in Microsoft Word.
Excel Online: Excel Online also allows for group work to take place on Excel sheets, perfect for creating quick graphs that you can access later. For more in-depth projects, Excel can also be accessed offline in Microsoft Excel.
PowerPoint Online: Like the first two programs, PowerPoint Online is an online version of Microsoft PowerPoint. Projects can be created, shared and edited from any computer, and they can be accessed with the full PowerPoint when needed.
OneNote Online: OneNote Online allows students to easily record notes on a single program, with a wide variety of organizational tools for keeping track of them. Perfect for lecture notes, project updates, or simply putting loose thoughts down in one place, OneNote is great for sharing information quickly and easily. Like the others, it can be accessed offline in Microsoft OneNote to have more tools at your disposal
OneDrive: OneDrive is Office 365’s online storage feature, and ties together all of the previous programs. Here, documents that you’ve created online or offline are stored, shared, edited, and downloaded. Users get 1 TB of free storage, and, as previously mentioned, can access it from anywhere they have an internet connection. Folders and documents can be accessed by anyone with shared access to them, making for much faster and easier group work.
Office 365 is an incredibly helpful tool for group projects and users who need to work on files and access them on the go. For help with Office 365, visit the Knowledgebase at Etown’s ITS website, or contact the Help Desk
