FAQ - Licensing for Office 365, Faculty and Staff
Important information regarding faculty and staff licensing of Office 365 on personal devices.
Faculty and Staff will have online access to Office 365 Education Licensing. Using the Office 365 portal, https://login.microsoftonline.com/, they will log in to the UWGB portal and access both files and Office applications.
NOTE: At this time, UWGB will not be using the email/calendar/people apps provided via Office 365.
What applications can I use when logging into the Office 365 Portal?
Faculty and Staff, using either Windows or Macintosh, will have access to Office Web Apps. These apps allow students to create and share Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files.
Will I have online storage? (similar to Goggle Docs or Dropbox)
Students will have 25G of online storage with OneDrive for Business. This provides cloud storage and allows students to share documents with others-- even outside of UWGB.
Can I work on documents with other users?
Yes. Online versions of Word, PowerPoint, and Excel allow users to work across multiple devices, right from a browser. Multiple users can work on the same document together. Just save and share the documents using OneDrive for Business.
How long can I continue to use Office 365 services?
Office 365 licensing is retained as long as the uwgb account is active.
When you are no longer employed by the University, you should uninstall
the software from your devices.
