Hi Debee,

Can she save the doc file to her OneDrive, and then open it in the Office 365 online instead? My students who have Chromebooks are generally able to use all Office 365 documents and files through the Office 365 on the web.

We don't use Chromebooks at all in our college; we're strictly Office 365. In fact we are discouraged from using the desktop office clients, but I use them anyway.

One of my students says she cannot open the Word files I've sent her - attached to emails on a Chromebook. We do see students coming in from high school who only have Chromebooks.

Is there any reason a Chromebook couldn't open a Microsoft Word doc prepared with the desktop version of Word 2016?

What else should I know about providing alt media to students who use Chromebooks?
