Student Instructional Technology Services is offering students the chance to learn Microsoft OneDrive to enhance your educational experience.
Microsoft OneDrive provides you cloud-based storage for your College files. Using OneDrive instead of your local hard drive, allows you to access your work or projects from anywhere, at any time, using any device.
Bring your own device and follow along with us as we explore how OneDrive provides easy and convenient access.

Taking Online Courses for the first time?
Need OAKS refresher prior to taking an online course?
The Introduction to OAKS for Students course has been created so that users can get a basic understanding of how to navigate OAKS (how to access content, upload assignments, post discussions, etc.).
Users can self-register for the course which allows them to automatically be enrolled into this course only (you will have to go through normal registration process to register for other CofC courses).
Once users have filled out the self-registration form, they will then be added only to the “Introduction to OAKS for Students” course. This is a non-credit course, therefore, this course has been designed for users to learn and understand basic OAKS navigational functions and features.

How to login to OAKS
New to the college this semester? Current student but your computer broke? Need to know what computer to purchase?
Starting July 6th, there will be login changes to OAKS in a continuing effort to bring authentication continuity across College systems and to improve our security profile.
How does this affect me?
After the update, you will be required to use your CofC email address (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org ) and COUGARS password for login credentials. The login screen will be slightly different (see screenshot below). Please note, if you are logged into any other Office 365 resources within your active browser, you will not be asked to sign in again and will automatically be directed to the OAKS home screen.
New Login Screen:
Self-Service Password Reset
Upon first log in you may be promoted to set up self-service password reset, if you haven’t done so previously. For more information on self-service password reset, please visit http://password.cofc.edu/
The OAKS student quick-guide is a printable cheat sheet displaying information about logging into OAKS, how to submit an assignment, how to set up your account to receive notifications, how to start and submit a quiz, how to start and reply to a discussion thread, and how to access your grades.
