Get Me Started - Start in your course. Be sure to sign into Office 365 first (see next note, below).

Recommended - Use the Chrome browser when creating a new collaboration.

Before You Begin

Important! - Sign into Office 365 before you start to create your first Office 365 collaboration.
Keep your Office 365 account logged in on another tab. Do not sign out until you've finished the collaboration.
