One Drive Basics 

Both staff and students have an online file storage area – One Drive. This is a useful area to create resources ready for sharing direct to classes or ready for use via Teams. 


Creating Office Documents (Word etc.) in One Drive 

This is a useful tutorial if you need to create files in O365 One Drive on an alternative device. It also demonstrates the process of creating and saving files direct into One Drive, ready for sharing with colleagues/students. 


Sharing a file from One Drive 

Please note that at stage where names of users can be entered for the sharing process, WGA staff can share to a whole class. To do this, begin typing in your class code (e.g. 10C-MS1). You should then see the relevant class appear as 10C-MS1 Members. If this does not appear, select “search directory”. 


Accessing a file shared to you from One Drive 

If a colleague or student has shared a file with you within O365 One Drive, this is how to access it. 


Managing Files in O365 TEAMS 

This is a great way to make a range of files accessible to a whole class. 


Managing Posts (conversations) settings in Teams 

If you want to switch the ability of students to communicate with each other and with you – check this tutorial. Remember – no posts can be deleted (this includes staff) and students are expected to use the space in a professional manner. If using this feature, please remind students of this.
