myCourses - Collaborations accessing Office 365


This article describes how to access Office 365 through Collaborations.


The Collaborations tool in myCourses uses Office 365 for collaborating. If the instructor of your course has enabled access to Collaborations, it will appear in the course menu list as "Collaborations". Every UNH faculty and student has an account on Office 365. After accessing Collaborations, you have to login to Office 365.

The login process will only be required the first time you access Office 365 through Collaborations from inside of a course. This connection between Office 365 and the course will be saved in the UNH environment so the next time you access Collaborations you will be passed through to your Office 365 environment.
