A guide to get you started with NextCloud and is intended for College (COE) faculty and staff.
NextCloud is a simple tool for syncing your files to the College of Education (COE) secure cloud-based file storage system. On your COE computer or device, you will have access to our secure COE NextCloud server using the NextCloud sync client, web browser or mobile app.
NextCloud is the COE supported method to safely store, backup and share files – especially those containing sensitive data such as personally identifiable information (PII).
In order to set up your COE computer to NextCloud, make sure that your computer is encrypted. If you aren’t sure, you can check with COE tech support located in Wist Hall 134.

Once encrypted, COE tech support can install your NextCloud client.
