On Monday, March 27, Red River College IT Solutions will begin the process of providing all currently registered students with access to Microsoft Office 365. Registered students will be able to use the online version of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneDrive.
In addition to the online versions of these applications, students will also have access to download and install the Microsoft Office 2016 suite on up to 5 devices.
Further documentation and frequently asked questions related to Office 365 are available on the ITS Support website which can be found at blogs.rrc.ca/its.
Throughout the month of March, Red River College IT Solutions is proceeding with the next phase of enhancements to the Student Email system, moving Student Mailboxes to Office 365 in the Cloud. This enhancement to the Student Email service will provide you with upgraded features, increase mailbox sizes and improve access to the Student email system from mobile devices. Details about these new features
and frequently asked questions related to this move are available on the ITS Support website which can be found at blogs.rrc.ca/its.
IT Solutions will notify you by email when your mailbox is scheduled to be moved to Office 365. There is no action required on your part to prepare for this move. All of your mail, calendar items and contacts will be moved to Office 365 during this process.
On May 16, Red River College is rolling out a new Student Email system (powered by Office 365), which will enable you to access your email, contacts, and calendar from virtually anywhere. Stay in sync and on schedule with Outlook, and coordinate more effectively with classmates and Instructors. The new Student Email will not change how you send email from Learn, but it will provide additional communication enhancements to you.
You’ll be sent further information regarding this change to your current student email.
Student Email will not be available from 4pm on Friday, May 13 until 10pm on Sunday, May 15 while we perform the upgrade.
