Say Hello to Microsoft Office 365 for education! 

Now you can save time and get more done with Office 365 for education— an email, web, and collaboration service. With Office 365, students, faculty, and staff can access the same great Office 365 tools that businesses around the world use every day to stay productive and on top of their work. Offered as a free upgrade from Live@edu, Office 365 empowers you by delivering the tools you need to prepare coursework, create sophisticated reports and presentations, and collaborate over the web.

With Office 365, you will now have two separate accounts:

1.     Office 365 account.

Email. You will continue to use Microsoft Outlook Web App or Microsoft Outlook to view and send email from your school account, but you will sign in at outlook.office365.com  using the same user name and password.

          File sharing. We will use Microsoft OneDrive for sharing files and Microsoft Office Web Apps for creating and reading documents.  

          Instant messaging and online meetings. We will use Microsoft Lync Online for both instant messaging and online meetings. 

2.   Old SkyDrive and Messensger account
        
The migration to Office 365 will not migrate your old SkyDrive or Messenger applications.  Those applications will be separated from your new Office 365 account.  They can be managed by going to the following site and resetting your password for the account.  At this time they will no longer be managed or supported by MCC.
