Microsoft Office 365 Web Apps


Microsoft Web Apps are included with your Office 365 account. Web Apps allow you to work in the cloud by opening Word, Excel, Powerpoint and OneNote documents in your web browser. By storing these documents on your OneDrive, you have access to these from virtually any device with an internet connection, meaning you are no longer tied down to a particular lab or computer to use Office.
