Exchange Online is Microsoft's cloud-based email and calendaring application included with the Office 365 suite, made available for faculty, staff, and student employees starting spring 2015.
The Exchange Online service offers a web based email and calendaring client through the university's Office 365 subscription called the Outlook Web App. If you have previous experience using Outlook, the new version will be familiar.
