Three Zoom videoconferencing sessions are scheduled this Thursday-Friday for students and faculty/staff to learn more about new features for Office 365 that were released earlier this month by Information Technology Services, including:
- Free Office 365 for desktop applications (Office 2013 for Windows, and Office 2011 for Mac)

The process will continue throughout the week, until all users have access to the OneDrive file-storage space and Office Online web apps (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote). If you do not see these features in your App Launcher by Monday, March 16, contact the IT Help Desk.
During the week of March 9, Information Technology Services will release the following new features for Office 365:
- OneDrive, a file-storage space that provides 1 terabyte (1TB) of storage that can be synced across all your devices
- Office Online, a web-based version of Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote)
- Office ProPlus, which provides desktop and mobile app versions of Microsoft Office
Microsoft announced that the iOS Office apps will be available for free, without the need of an Office 365 subscription. The apps include mobile versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint. To access the editing features, log into the apps with a Microsoft account (Live or Hotmail account), which can be freely created at www.live.com. Previously users would have needed an Office 365 subscription to edit within the iOS Office apps.
