If your school provides you with an Office 365 account, you can use OneDrive folders to store your coursework and share the work with your teachers.
After creating a OneDrive folder, you will need to share the folder with your teacher (scroll further down for instructions).
After sharing the folder, you can copy and paste a link to specific items within the folder when responding to assignments. Specific items may include Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, photos, audio/video recordings, and PDF files (scroll further down for instructions).
How to create a OneDrive folder
After logging into your Office 365 account, click App launcher (9-dot grid) at the top left of the page.
From the Apps list, click OneDrive.
From the top menu bar, click New (1) and then click Folder (2).
Type in a folder name and then click Create. When deciding on a folder name, it is a good practice to use the course name. If you’re taking more than one online course, create a folder for each course to keep track of your work.
