OneDrive: How to upload files, share files etc.

Why use OneDrive?

OneDrive is a great place to store files. Think of it as an online USB storage area. Files uploaded there can be also be accessed on the go from a smartphone or tablet.

Group Work

OneDrive offers powerful collaborative tools. When you share a file with an individual or group from your OneDrive, you can choose to grant them editing access. This can allow multiple people to contribute to an assignment - sometimes simultaneously! Collaborative files contain a version history to help you keep track of any changes made by the group, so it's easy to tell who's done what.

Large File Support

The maximum storage size for assignments on Tabor Online is 48MB, so OneDrive can be an excellent option for students looking to share large assignments (like videos and presentations) with their lecturers. To avoid long wait times, we recommend that files over 500MB are uploaded using the campus Wi-Fi.

How to upload a file to OneDrive

1) To access OneDrive, log into Tabor Online, click on Microsoft 365 & Outlook from the main menu, and select OneDrive from the drop-down list.

2) Once you're inside your OneDrive, click on the Upload button and select Files. This will allow you to browse the file on your computer.

3) Once the file has been added, it should appear in your OneDrive file list.
