Office 365 Help Topics

General Overview

Office 365 Education is a collection of cloud-based services from Microsoft for accessing online versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Access, Outlook, Publisher, as well as Yammer and SharePoint sites. The services also include 1TB of storage in OneDrive.   Not all services may be immediately available as ULM Information Technology (IT) is working with learning the management aspects of some of the new features.  As additional items are activated, appropriate announcements will be made for those usages. 

Students currently attending ULM can use the online versions, or install the full Office applications for free.  Office 365 Education access enables students to collaborate with others in real-time and share schoolwork.  Full access can be used for up to 5 PCs or MACs, and Office apps on mobile devices including Android, iPad®, and Windows tablets.
