Using Office Web Apps to Edit Documents Online

Office Web Apps are limited versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote that allow you to edit documents in a browser window.  You can create a new document online, edit an existing document, share it with others and save it back to your OneDrive using Office Web Apps.  You do not need to have a full version of Office installed on your computer to use Office Web Apps.

  • Use Office Web Apps when you want to collaborate on a document with a colleague or another student.
