Office 365 apps

If you are a student or member of staff, you can install Microsoft Office 365 for free on up to five personal devices. Office 365 can be used on PCs, Macs, tablets and smartphones. Integration with OneDrive allows you to store data on the cloud and use web based applications of your Office from any computer with internet access. OneDrive provides a place for staff and students to store, share and sync files. Students can use OneDrive to work on Microsoft Office documents with others (inside and outside UL) in collaboration.

E-portfolio alternatives

Although we don't have a supported e-portfolio tool in UL, some of the Office 365 apps can help us with this. 

Sway is a new app from Microsoft Office that makes it easy to create and share interactive reports, personal stories, presentations, and more. It is intuitive and well suited for students creating blogs and e-portfolios. Text, image, audio, video, embed can be easily added and it can be shared with the lecturer or with the class. Students only need to log into Office 365 and then open Sway. It can be used on multiple platforms (smartphones and tablet) and is compatible with iOS and Android. 

Also, OneNote can also be used to facilitate a space for students to compile a portfolio, either individually or in collaboration with a group. See the document below to learn more:
