Live@edu Student Communication Update: SkyDrive Replaces UNT Student Storage

By Dr. Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner, Student Computing Services Manager

SkyDrive - the first part of the new student communication system replacing Eaglemail at UNT - has arrived and is ready for use. All current students have accounts for the Sky Drive which supplants UNT Student Storage and gives them 5 gigabytes (and as of a couple of days ago - 10 gigabytes are promised!) of online, web-accessible storage space for their documents.

Students should not fear that their documents on UNTSS are gone forever. UNTSS is still up and running but students DO need to move their documents to the new Sky Drive soon. Additionally, though Sky Drive is a Microsoft product, it works great on Macintosh computers as well. The UNT Helpdesk provides all the information needed by students to make the move to Sky Drive and this info is located at on the home page. A further link to a Sky Drive Information Page is provided with more documentation by the UNT Helpdesk.

The entire student communication system is in a state of construction, innovation, and transition. Everyone is strongly encouraged to check the CITC Helpdesk page regularly for the latest updates and tutorials on this project. Also, the Student Tour Website will be regularly edited and updated to reflect these changes. And as always - additional questions and clarifications can be directed to the Helpdesk itself by calling 940-565-2324.

Stay tuned for more exciting student communication developments including a new email system, calendar service, instant messaging and more!
