First we’ll begin with getting to SkyDrive:
There are different ways to get to it but here are two ways:
Recently a new tab was added to the Martin Methodist Drop-down menu selection which takes you to a page that logs you directly into your SkyDrive. The selection can be found in the picture below.
With this new option you will use the same log in as you would to log in to your student email account.
If you want to go to your student email first then to SkyDrive follow these next steps:
Login to your email via www.martinmethodist.edu
Once you’re into your e-mail, look at the Top of the screen for the “More” button.
Click it and SkyDrive will be listed in the drop-down menu.
Now you should be into SkyDrive and we’ll move on to the next activity.
The next activity that will be covered is How to Upload files to SkyDrive from your computer.
Click the “Upload” Button located at the top of the page once you are into SkyDrive.
Once you click “Upload” a screen will pop up for you to look through your folders and select the file you want to upload.
Select the folder your file is located in as in the picture above. (ex: Example Folder)
Next you will select your file (ex: Example Document) and then click “Open”. (as pictured above)
You’ll know that your document has been uploaded once your browser refreshes and the document shows up in your SkyDrive. (as pictured below)
If you want to keep your SkyDrive organized you can create more folders by clicking “Create” next to the “Upload” button and then proceeding to click “Folder” in the drop-down menu. (as pictured below)
Now that you have your documents on SkyDrive, you can login and access your files in all sorts of places. (All you have to do is login to your SkyDrive) With a recent rework of SkyDrive, it is now possible to even make your own documents with SkyDrive while on SkyDrive at the same time.
Things you can create on Skydrive: Word Documents, Excel workbooks, Powerpoint presentations, and OneNote notebooks.
All you have to do is click “Create” at the top and click the type of document you want to create. The default names will be “Book1” for Excel, “Document1” for Microsoft Word, “Notebook1” for OneNote, and “Presentation1” for PowerPoint. You will be able to create your own name for your file after you click what type of document you’re wanting to create in the drop-down menu.
Pictured above is a document that was just created in SkyDrive and as you can see it is laid out just like Microsoft Word is on your computer. It is very useful for doing basic changes in word, but as far as any WordArt and such as that, I would recommend using your own personal Microsoft Word.
Couple of Tips for the SkyDrive version of Microsoft Word:
1.) The button labeled 1 in the picture above is for you to get back to the main SkyDrive screen once you have saved your document and want to get out of it.
2.) The button labeled 2 is for a situation where you want to instead work on this document in the Microsoft Word that is on your computer instead of on SkyDrive.
And the last topic we'll cover is how to get back to your e-Mail from Skydrive.
If you want to get back to your e-Mail hover your cursor over the SkyDrive Logo (pictured to the left) then click the down arrow and select “Mail”.
Now you’re back to your e-mail and know how to get to and from SkyDrive and use it!
