What is OneDrive

OneDrive is part of Office 365 and is an online (cloud) file storage application. You are provided with 1TB of storage space for files, photos, etc. Your files can be shared with others, are accessible from any device connected to the Internet and even collaborate with others on your Office documents at the same time while editing the document in the browser.

With Office 365, you can create a document on your office or home computer, save it to OneDrive and edit the same file on another device. No need to email it to yourself or save a copy to a thumb drive. All applications available can be used on-line across multiple platforms (PC/Mac, tablet, iPad, smartphone).

There are two ways to access Office 365, OneDrive and other online applications. Log into your LLCC Email account via the web, 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 and login with your LLCC Email address. If prompted, choose the Work or School Account option.

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 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 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.
