Have you ever heard something like “put it on SharePoint”, “try 365” or “it’s saved in my OneDrive”?
This is just a quick introduction to what they are.
Remember Microsoft Office on the computer? Word? Excel? When those applications moved online, instead of Microsoft calling it Microsoft Office Online They called it Office 365.
Office 365 is the umbrella name for the online service that Microsoft provide to business, individuals and just for us in schools - for free.
It includes all the old favourites, Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Outlook, but as it is in the cloud it brings more tools to make the most of this advantage. You can even use the Install Office button to install those on your home computer.
To keep this document short, we will look at two items. SharePoint and OneDrive.
Put simply, think of them like this:
OneDrive is your My Documents in the cloud.
SharePoint is the Staff Drive in the cloud.
