Article SummaryMicrosoft OneDrive is a cloud-based storage solution where you can store your files. Those files are conveniently accessible across all your devices - work computer, home computer, mobile phone, and tablet.
Microsoft OneDrive, formerly known as SkyDrive, is a cloud storage solution where you can store your document, pictures, videos, and more. They will be accessible from any of your devices at any location via Office365, the mobile device OneDrive app, or the desktop OneDrive app - see How do I access my Microsoft OneDrive?

Some of the features of OneDrive include:
  • Desktop synchronizing - access the files you work on from work, home, cell phone, or tablet
  • Creating and editing MS Office documents in your browser - you don't need to install or load an MS Office application to make changes to your document, saving you time.
  • Integrated with your MS Office desktop - Office apps can default to OneDrive for storage and searching
  • Automatic versioning of documents - right-click a file and select Version History.

This service is offered to students as part of their Algonquin college email account.
