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.
Sign in with your EMCC email login.
Click “One Drive”
This is what your OneDrive Cloud will look like.
Sync will make a local copy on your PC. Only do this on your personal computer. Don’t Sync on a college lab computer.
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.
Now select “OneDrive Eastern Maine Community College” and “Browse” recent files.
Anything you save in this folder using this alternative method will be saved to the OneDrive Cloud. You can access it from any computer as long as you sign in with your EMCC student email account and perform the steps outlined in this tutorial.
Before You Begin
- Please read through the entire process once to make sure you understand all of the steps.
- The process for installation and screenshots may differ slightly as changes are always being made by Microsoft.
- 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)
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.
- Go to http://portal.office.com and logon with your student email and MyEMCC password
- Once logged in, click the orange box install in the bottom right corner. You might also want to uncheck the two boxes above.
- You will receive a popup prompting you to download a file. Check the Save File radio button, then click Save File
- When the download is finished, go to your downloads directory, find the file, and double-click it.
Then click Run to begin the installation process.
- Office will begin downloading the necessary files and setting up the software.
- Depending on the speed of your internet connection, you may see this screen.
As stated above, the install process needs to download about 900MB of data, which
may take a very long time over a slow connection.
- The next step is to accept the EULA and sign in to Office365, which essentially activates your copy.
- Type your EMCC student email address in the box provided, then click next and enter your password.
