Exercise 1 - Sign up for Microsoft Office 365 Trial

Microsoft Office 365 is a suite of cloud-based services that is designed to meet your requrements for robust security, 24x7 reliability and enhanced user productivity.

Office 365 offers an array of subscription plans designed to fit the requirements of an organization or home users. Typically, an Office 365 subscription comes with a fully-installed desktop version of Microsoft Office that includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher and Access on your PC or Mac. Office 365 applications can be accessed on 1 tablet and 1 mobile phone. Your subscription comes with a 1 TB cloud storage on OneDrive and 60 monthly Skype minutes.

E-mail users who have either Hotmail or Outlook accounts have free access to a scaled down version of Microsoft Office called Office Online. Office Online includes web-based versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. You can access these by signing in to OneDrive (formerly known as SkyDrive) web storage.

In this exercise, you will manage files in various configurations of Microsoft Office 365.

Exercise 2 - Sharing Documents in OneDrive

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 e-mail.
