Office 365 allows each student to install Microsoft Office on up to five PCs or Macs and five mobile devices, and provides access to Microsoft Office online applications. Parental consent is required before students can access Office 365 applications. Parents may provide consent through Synergy ParentVUE, or by responding to the parental consent email from Office365ParentalConsent@cobbk12.org. View the instructional video for further information about providing consent through ParentVUE; you may contact Judy.Collins@Cobbk12.org for assistance with setting up a Synergy ParentVUE account. Once a parent responds to the consent email, selecting option 1, the student may gain access to all of the resources by signing in at login.microsoftonline.com, using the following format: First.Last@students.cobbk12.org and their CCSD computer login password.
OneDrive is one of the many useful features that come with online access to CCSD’s Office 365. When students use their @students.cobbk12.org account to access OneDrive, they have 1TB of storage in the cloud. They can easily save files to their OneDrive from the menus in Microsoft Office 2013 programs, such as Word or PowerPoint. Files saved to OneDrive may be retrieved on any device with Internet access. Students may visit the Media Center and ask Dr. Bryan for a demonstration of Office 365 Online Apps or for assistance using OneDrive for storing files in the cloud. Further information about getting started may be found on WheelerLibrary.com’s Technology Tools and Tips page.
