Cobb County School District is providing Microsoft Office 365 FREE to all Cobb students and their families! The service includes access to the full suite of productivity applications, including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, OneNote, and others. Students also get a terabyte of cloud file storage in OneDrive!
Office 365 includes versions of these tools that can be used online in a web browser. However, students and their families can also install Office 2016 desktop applications on up to five Windows PCs or Macs at home! Not only that, but students can use their Office 365 accounts on the Office 365 mobile apps for smartphones and tablets. Best of all, the online applications, desktop software, and mobile apps all work together and synchronize through the cloud!
To access these features, log in with the student’s Office 365 account:
- User ID: SCH\studentnumber
- Alternative options exist. Students may use their “firstname.lastname” alone instead, or full O365 username- email@example.com. Students can look up their username in StudentVUE and teachers can print a roster of student usernames.
- Teachers log in using their normal cobbk12.org email address.
- Password: same password as the student uses to log in to Windows computers at school
