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.
