OneDrive Cloud Storage for Students

 

OneDrive is a place where you can store, sync, and share your student files.  As part of Office 365, OneDrive lets you update and share your files from anywhere and work on Office documents with others at the same time.

Begin by going to your EMCC email.

Alternative way to use OneDrive

While you are writing a paper in Word, you can save the file directly to your OneDrive.

Go to “File” and check “Account” to ensure that you are already signed in. If you aren’t, go ahead and sign in with your EMCC email and password.

Before You Begin

  • Please read through the entire process once to make sure you understand all of the steps.
  • It is highly suggested that you begin this process where high speed internet access is available. The installation process requires that about 900MB of setup files are downloaded to your local machine and this could take a VERY long time over a slow connection.
  • There are two methods to installing Office 365, we recommend using the first method because it is much faster over the wireless network. However if you run into problems, please use the second method.

First Method (Recommended)

Bring your laptop into the IT Department. We have USB devices which you may use to install Office365 on your machine. This method will be MUCH faster than installing over the Wifi because the data is already downloaded to the USB disk. Note: This process will still take 20-30 minutes, so please set aside the appropriate amount of time.
Second Method (Not recommended over campus wifi)
Over the campus wireless network, this can take as long as one hour, maybe more, therefore we recommend that you complete this procedure from home. If that is not an option for you, please contact the IT Department for assistance.
