BYOx Link (Microsoft InTune)
Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus\2016
All Queensland state school students from Prep–Year 12 can download multiple free copies of the Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus\2016 Suite to their personal home and mobile computer.
Students will need to use their school username, email address and password. See Email and other useful information
See https://learningplace.education.qld.gov.au/microsoft-office-software for further information.
Year 6-12 students need to install Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus\2016 desktop applications on their BYOx laptop using the above link.
Students must uninstall this software from all of their devices once they are no longer enrolled in a Queensland state school.
Security software suite with anti-virus and anti-malware is required to be installed on student laptops e.g. Nortons by Symantec, McAfee,
- Cyber security experts recommend that free security software, including anti-virus software not be used.
- Security software may impact on the ability to connect student BYOx laptops to the state-wide Department of Education wireless network. Students need to be able to turn off security software if required (local administrator permissions), else parents\carers (with username and passwords) will need to come with the student to the Student Tech Hub in the Middle Senior Library to connect the laptop (8 am recommended).
- Microsoft Family and Qustodio (MacOS) do not allow students to connect their BYOx laptops and should not be installed.
Adobe Creative Cloud
The College participates in the Department of Education's Adobe enterprise agreement, with Year 6-12 students allocated a "named user licence", funded by the College.
Information about Adobe Creative Cloud licences is emailed to students at the start of the year, including a troubleshooting guide, and students receive a "getting started" email from email@example.com
New Year 6-12 students requiring an Adobe Creative Cloud licence after start of year procedures have been finalised (usually by end of Week 3), can go to the Student Laptop Hub in the Middle Senior Library and request a licence.
