Skydrive

leave a comment »

Another fantastic feature of Live@edu available to students.  Skydrive is 5GB of virtual storage in the cloud.  Essentially a 5GB flash drive with anytime, anywhere access for any and all file types.  GENIUS!! Oh yeah, and of course it is completely free.

Invincible Mailbox – Microsoft’s Live@edu

leave a comment »

I want to take this chance to write a little bit about Microsoft’s Live@edu email offering.  Central to the Live@edu offer is Exchange Labs, which offers an unprecedented 10 GB of email storage as well as 20 MB attachments.  This is a fully exchange enabled mailbox that gives students all the advantages of an enterprise solution – for free.

Students can share calendars and contacts with friends and also schedule meetings utilizing the free/busy function of Exchange. In terms of hosted email solutions for students at Higher Education and K12 institutions this is the most advanced and feature rich option out there.

Work has been keeping me busy.  I have spent the last three weeks on the road.  Just returned from Orlando and Indiana this weekend.  Now I have a week to catch up on email before taking back off to Europe next week.  Busy, Busy.
