DSD: OneDrive for sharing files
Course Description:

OneDrive is a web-based storage and collaboration space which is available to you through your UCL Office 365 account. It is the ideal place to store documents which you wish to share with just one or a couple of people in an ad hoc way.

OneDrive allows you to store/share any type of file, share large files too large to email, is integrated with other Office 365 apps and is GDPR compliant.

In this course we will explore the basic features of OneDrive and the 'File Request' feature which allows you to generate an email which contains a link which the recipients will use to upload their file straight into your OneDrive. This feature is particularly useful for tutors who need to request large assignment files from their students which can't be submitted to Turnitin or emailed.

Once you have booked on the course you will be able to access all of the online materials in our Digital Skills Development Moodle course.
