Exercise 1 - Using OneDrive for Document Storage

Microsoft OneDrive provides free cloud-based storage where users can upload and synchronize files “on the cloud.” This means that these files can be accessed from any computer, tablet or mobile phone that is connected to the Internet.

OneDrive offers free usage of this service on a plan that provides 5 GB of storage (as of this writing). Your storage account can be upgraded to higher capacity on a paid subscription basis.

You will perform this lab on your own computer. The lab has been written primarily for Microsft Windows-based computers.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this exercise, you will be able to:

  • Recognise Software as a Service
  • Create and save documents within OneDrive
  • Identify version history and recover files with OneDrive

Exercise 2 - Using OneDrive for Document Sharing

You can use OneDrive to share your folders and files to people that you work with. This gives you the convenience of sharing large files with colleagues without sending them as an attachment through email.

The other party to whom you have given access to your files is not required to have an Outlook account since this procedure allows them to download the files using a link provided to them in an email message. However, it’s more convenient for both parties to have an Outlook.com account as this gives them streamlined access to OneDrive application.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this exercise, you will be able to:

  • Create documents for collaboration using OneDrive
  • Apply document permissions using OneDrive
