Office Online is an online office suite offered by Microsoft, which allows users to create and edit files using web browser-based versions of Microsoft Office apps: Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. You can work on-the-go with the ability to get your files from anywhere because of the integration with OneDrive. (Office Online apps can only save to OneDrive.)
How to Access Office Online
You can access the Office Online apps with a web browser by going to the Office 365 portal and logging in with your Eservices credentials. Once you are logged in, you will see the Office 365 App Launcher which shows a series of tiles similar to the Windows start menu. There will be tiles for each of the Office Online applications. Clicking on one of the tiles will open the app with a blank document, which will be automatically saved to your OneDrive.
You can also access the Office Online apps by opening OneDrive in the Office 365 portal and then choosing the New blue button at the top and picking a document type. This will open the appropriate Office Online application with a blank document, which will be saved in your OneDrive. You can also do this with an existing document.
