All currently enrolled students at Daytona State College are provided with a no-cost account to Microsoft o365. Here are a few things you should know:
What software do I have available to me via my free account and how do I get to it?
This short video provides an overview of available software and how to find it.
How can I download Microsoft Office to my device?
If you would prefer not to use internet-based software and storage, you also have access to download Microsoft Office software free on up to five (5) devices.
The benefit of downloading the software directly to your device is that it is not tied to the internet. Even when wi-fi is down or internet connection is slow or sketchy, you are still able to access your software and work. Need to write your essay, but the internet is down? No problem if you have Office downloaded to your computer. Just open Word and starting working!

Free software is great. Knowing how to use it is even better!

Using Office 365 to collaborate on documents and presentations is extremely helpful when you are working with a team or a group. Instead of using Google Docs, which requires a Google account, use your existing access to Office 365 via FalconMail to share files and work on common projects.
