You have options for saving your course work and files:

  • your home directory / H drive: network storage, currently the supported solution from Technology Services, and works well when on-campus or with a virtual desktop
  • OneDrive - Madison College: cloud-based storage as one of our Office 365 apps. It's easy to use whether on-campus or off-campus when you are connected to the internet. 
  • email a copy to yourself
  • USB drives
  • personal computer or cloud storage

Do Not save to the hard drive or desktop of a campus computer. Your work will not be saved when you log off. 


  • Save early- As soon as you start a document, save it.
  • Save often - Maybe every paragraph or so. 
  • Check where you are saving - ​Use File-Save As...  When you open a document online, it may automatically save to a temporary location and may be deleted when you log off.  
  • Backup - save in a couple locations. Protect your important course work.
