What is OneDrive and should you use it?

OneDrive is part of Microsoft Office 365 and is an online (cloud) file storage application. Each LLCC account is provided with 1TB of storage space for files, photos, videos, etc. OneDrive should be used to store your LLCC documents that would normally be stored on your individual network folder (Ex. \\llcc.edu\academia\educators or \\llcc.edu\departments\) and\or your office computer documents folder or desktop.

After the Spring 2017 semester ends, LLCC will be converting to this data storage system in place of the current network folder structure.  As such, you are strongly encouraged to begin uploading your files to OneDrive and\or attend a training session held in Academic Innovation and eLearning computer lab (faculty and staff are both welcome to attend). Click here to view the schedule and register for a session.

There are two ways to access Office 365, OneDrive and other online applications. Log into your LLCC Email account via the web (www.llcc.edu, My LLCC, Email) click on the apps icon (waffle) or the Office 365 link in the upper left of the window. You can access this directly at  https://portal.office.com  and login with your LLCC Email address. If prompted, choose the Work or School Account option.

For assistance installing the OneDrive App please contact the IT Service Desk at 217.786.2555 or submit a ticket via KBOX.

Office 365 – OneDrive – Share a File or Folder

How do you share a file or folder from your OneDrive account? You can share only to active LLCC email accounts with an email and the link to the document or by creating a hyperlink to post in an email, on a webpage or with your Blackboard course.

Select the document by clicking to the left of the name. To the far right, Click on Share in the menu. Add People via email address to the right. You can then choose to give Edit or View permissions.

From within an open document, click on Share in the upper right corner. The default sharing method is Invite People. Here you will enter individual LLCC Email addresses. The file option is defaulted with Edit, but you can change to View only permissions. Type in a note to the recipient(s) and click Share.

Should you choose to post a hyperlink to your document, you will select the Get Link. You must choose one of the three options for sharing permissions.

  • Restricted – recipient opens the link and then must request permission to view. Permissions must be granted by file owner. You will receive an Email notification of the request to view and allow sharing access.
  • View Link – recipient can open the document as Read-Only and can forward this onto other LLCC email accounts.
  • Edit Link – recipient can open, edit and forward the document onto other LLCC email accounts.

After choosing the permission option that best meets your need, click on Create. Copy the hyperlink and then paste into an Email message (you can send this to a distribution group within your Email Contacts list using this method) or specific course location in Blackboard. Files remained shared until you stop sharing. Create a new hyperlink if you wish to share the document again at a later date and post accordingly.

Stop Sharing or change the sharing permissions on a file or folder at any time. Selecting the file or folder within OneDrive and to the right, click on Shared. A list will appear to the right with the individuals shared with and permissions. Click on the Can Edit or Can View beneath the individual’s name and choose a different permission or Stop Sharing. To stop sharing with all, click on the Share option in the menu after selecting the file or folder. Click on Share With in the window and then Stop Sharing. This will prompt you for a confirmation.

IMPORTANT: LLCC LAUNCHING NEW EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM WEDNESDAY-PLEASE CHECK YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION

LLCC is launching a new emergency notification system this Wednesday, Dec. 7, called LLCC ALERT. The LLCC ALERT system allows the college to communicate with you by text, phone and email in the case of an emergency, as well as severe weather and other closures. Current employees and students are automatically enrolled in LLCC ALERT.

We strongly encourage you to visit www.llcc.edu/alert and log in with your LLCC user name and password to check your current contact information and manage how you receive emergency notifications. LLCC ALERT uses the information about you currently stored in the college’s Colleague system, and this information may need updating. Please add your office phone number if it is not listed, and make any other revisions needed.

You will receive an email today and tomorrow with this same information, urging you to check your current contact information at www.llcc.edu/alert. On Wednesday, you will receive a test message from LLCC ALERT. You will then receive a follow-up email to make sure you received the test message.

LLCC ALERT employs the RAVE system used successfully by colleges and universities nationwide, and replaces the current LLCC Connect emergency notification system.

Note: Updating your contact information in LLCC ALERT will NOT update that information in Colleague. To update your information in Colleague, please contact Human Resources.
