Collaboration Tools

What is it and why do I need it?

The purpose of a collaboration tool is to support a group of two or more individuals to accomplish a common goal or objective. West Chester University supports a number of collaborative tools.  Office 365 allows you to create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations as well as collaborate with team members in real time.

Office 365 is a collection of productivity tools that allow you to perform common business tasks in 'the cloud'.  This means, your files will be stored on Microsoft OneDrive server and on your computer and facilitate real-time collaboration on documents.
