Since 2006, Becker College has offered student email to all students at the college. Your student email account is an important part of your Becker experience. This account is used to receive important updates from your Faculty and the administration:
As an extra benenfit this year, Becker is proud to present Office 365 for education—including email, instant messaging, group video and voice chat, and online document viewing and editing. With Office 365, students, faculty, and staff can access the same great Office 365 tools that businesses around the world use every day including:
|Email and calendars||Cloud-based email and calendars powered by Microsoft Exchange Online using your domain name.
|Web conferencing||Rich online meetings with audio and video, desktop sharing, and virtual whiteboard.
|Office Web Apps||Create and edit Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft OneNote documents using your favorite web browser.|
|Team sites||Share files and documents with classmates. Create team, study group, or club sites.
With Office 365, you will now have two separate accounts:
Email. You will continue to use Microsoft Outlook Web App or Microsoft Outlook to view and send email from your school account, but you will sign in at https://www.outlook.com/becker.edu using the same user name and password.
File sharing. We will use Microsoft SharePoint Online for sharing files and Microsoft Office Web Apps for creating and reading documents.
Instant messaging and online meetings. We will use Microsoft Lync Online for both instant messaging and online meetings.
If you use Internet Explorer 7 or earlier, you will need to upgrade to a newer version of Internet Explorer.
If you use Microsoft Outlook to read your email and use Microsoft Office 2003 or earlier, you will need to upgrade to Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010 to continue using Outlook.
For more information about the upgrade, see the Checklist for users.
