LinkEdu is a unique partnership that combines Drexel University's technology and integration strengths with two of the world’s largest information technology companies, Google™ and Microsoft™. This partnership provides students with a growing array of services that use the drexel.edu domain and offer a vast amount of storage free of charge, and, in most cases, without advertisements.
Drexel-provided services, continue to include official email accounts from the University that are assigned to all incoming students. LinkEdu simply adds more options, services, capabilities, and accounts. Students can choose to activate both LinkEdu accounts, pick just the one that meet their needs, or ignore LinkEdu altogether. LinkEdu services are currently provided by Google and Microsoft; Microsoft offers the next generation of Microsoft Exchange, MS Office and SkyDrive.
You can activate your LinkEdu accounts by going to http://accounts.drexel.edu.
