Collaboration Tools

Duke’s Box

Duke’s Box is a cloud-based storage and collaboration service for all Duke University and Duke Medicine faculty, staff and students. With Box, users can access, store and share content securely with Duke and non-Duke users — anywhere, anytime, on any device. Visit the FAQ page for more information.

Box accounts have been provisioned for all University faculty, staff, and students. If you are new to Duke and do not have a Box account contact the OIT Service Desk. Box accounts are available for University affiliates and sponsored guests. Users must have an active Duke email address and need to complete the online training.

It also allows you to use the mobile version of Microsoft Office, available free through Duke’s site license with Microsoft, so you can edit, share and collaborate on documents using your mobile device or tablet..
