Skydrive

Our Corporate workgroup needed a space to work collaboratively on the same document for our Final ID Project. We initially tried to import our Word document into Google Docs, but that really altered the document formatting to the point that it wouldn’t work for us. After a bit of research I found that Microsoft provides a similar service specifically for Word, and other Microsoft documents. It is called SkyDrive.

Initially it seemed that SkyDrive was only available for a fee, but with a little more digging I found that UTK provides us use of SkyDrive with out UTK ID. It has proved very helpful for our group. Here is a link to OIT’s page linking you to SkyDrive: https://oit.utk.edu/accounts/email/Pages/Volmail-(Students).aspx
