Office 365 (for business and education) and Office.com

OfficeOnline    office365

Both of these let you store your files in a OneDrive "cloud" or online storage space. What is OneDrive? (short video from Microsoft)

If your school has Office 365, then each student and teacher receives unlimited storage. Check with your teacher (teachers can sign up for a free education account) for a username and passcode to use.

If your school does NOT have Office 365, you can signup for a Free Office 365 Education account (requires using a valid school email address).
