Office 365 and OneDrive

Office 365 is a suite of apps that include both desktop versions and apps available through a browser. In addition to traditional Office applications you have other apps including Teams, Planner, SharePoint, Power Automate, Power Apps, and many more.

OneDrive offers users a way to store files in the cloud, share files with other users, and sync files on all their devices. It is a cloud storage service available in Windows, Office 365, and to anyone with a Microsoft account. Learn to effectively use this tool by attending a class at the Computer Education & and Training Center at UMSL. [More on OneDrive]
