[Athen] Change to Sharepoint that affects alt media

If you use SharePoint to deliver files to students, you'll be happy to know that PDF files can now be viewed online without requiring they be downloaded and saved.

Previously, a PDF hosted on sharepoint needed to be locally saved before the user could view, edit or share it. Last week after over one thousand user voice requests, Microsoft finally implemented the feature that lets users skip the saving process.

Of course, if your student needs access technology, the PDF still must be saved first, but sometimes students just want to look at and/or search through a batch of PDFS without storing them locally. This should be especially useful for students using those free, limited memory cellphones.
