What should I use - Office 365, Google Suite for Education or MyMoodle?

Office 365 and Google Suite for Education contains a host of services and applications provided free of charge by Microsoft and Google students, which means that they control the development of the services; support and, to some extent, the availability.

As a student at Linnaeus University, you have your email via Google Suite for Education.

Currently, most  Linné University employees do not have access to either the Google Suite for Education or Office 365, so in most cases, you will not be able to  share files with your teachers in any of these services. MyMoodle is the university-wide learning platform used on Linnaeus University.

It is up to you  which of the Office 365 services you want to use, but we want to suggest that you can create and edit, for example, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint  files directly in the Web browser with the Online version of Microsoft  Office.
