OneDrive in Depth Live Online Learning Course

Microsoft OneDrive is your individual storage space in Office 365. In this half-day online course, you will get to grips with the basics of using OneDrive. You will look at what the Cloud means for the way you work, and will learn how to access the Portal and all the 365 tools from multiple devices for more flexible working.

If you are new to the concept of working in the Cloud, and need to get familiar with Office 365 and OneDrive, then this is the course for you.

Course Overview

What you will learn

Please note that we will be using Office 365 for Business, rather than the standard Home version of Office.

This course will be taught online over two 90-minute sessions. It will highlight the Office 365 Portal and will give you some background on all the Apps available (although this session focuses on OneDrive). 

You will look at what the Cloud means for the way you work and how to access the Portal and the 365 tools from multiple devices for more flexible working.

Within OneDrive, you will take an indepth look at Sharing documents, so you can control who has access to your documents and what permissions they have. It also covers synchronising files, which can be a much easier and more flexible way to work with OneDrive.
