CUNY School of Law is proud to present Office 365 for education—including email, instant messaging, group video and voice chat, and online document viewing and editing. With Office 365, students can access the same great Office 365 tools that other schools around the world use every day including:
Email and calendars: Cloud-based email and calendars powered by Microsoft Exchange Online.
- 25 GB storage per user
Web conferencing: Rich online meetings with audio and video, desktop sharing, and virtual whiteboard.
- Excellent for distance learning
Office Web Apps: Create and edit Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft OneNote documents using your favorite web browser.
Team sites: Share files and documents with classmates. Create team, study group, or club sites.
- Up to 300 sub sites
With Office 365, you now have two separate accounts:
1. Office 365 account
Email. You will continue to use Microsoft Outlook Web App or Microsoft Outlook to view and send email from your school account at http://live.law.cuny.edu using the same user name and password. Please note: In Office 365 you will not see our logo, but CUNY School of Law still administers this account.
File sharing. We will use Microsoft SharePoint Online for sharing files and Microsoft Office Web Apps for creating and reading documents
Instant messaging and online meetings. We will use Microsoft Lync Online for both instant messaging and online meetings.
2. Personal Microsoft account
This personal account will give you access to all existing SkyDrive content, Messenger, and other Microsoft services. You will use the same user name and password that was used to access Live@CUNY Law. Note that CUNY School of Law no longer administers this account. As a result, we cannot reset the password for you. Use https://account.live.com/ResetPassword.aspx to reset the password for your personal account after the upgrade.
- Sign into SkyDrive using your Live@edu user name and password
- Bookmark SkyDrive: https://skydrive.live.com
If you use Internet Explorer 7 or earlier, you will need to upgrade to a newer version of Internet Explorer.
If you use Microsoft Outlook to read your email and use Microsoft Office 2003 or earlier, you will need to upgrade to Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010 to continue using Outlook.
If you have questions or need help, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 718-340-4456.
