You may be hearing about Office 365, Office, 2016 or 2019 and Office Online. Don't worry, you are not hearing things, and this may be a bit confusing.
Here is some information to keep them straight.
- Office 365 is a subscription based service that now both Algonquin students and staff are part of. For more, see What is Office 365?
- Office 2016 or 2019 is on your desktop.
- Outlook Online is the replacement for OWA, how you access your email online using your web browser.
- The MS Outlook app is on your mobile device. This is recommended by ITS for the best mobile email experience.
Here is a link to a Microsoft webpage that explains each product and their differences
Do not install or pay for any MS Office product as Algonquin College staff and students get MS Office free through the college. F
