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 Managed Internet Service (MIS) login, school email account and password. See https://learningplace.education.qld.gov.au/microsoft-office-software for further information.

Year 7-12 students need to install Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus\2016 desktop applications on their BYOx laptop.

Students must uninstall this software from all of their devices once they are no longer enrolled in a Queensland state school.

Security Software

Security software suite with anti-virus and anti-malware is required to be installed on student laptops e.g. Nortons by Symantec, McAfee, 

NOTE

  • 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

Year 7-12 students participate in the Department of Education's Adobe enterprise agreement, in which students are 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 message@adobe.com

New Year 7-12 students requiring an Adobe Creative Cloud licence after start of year procedures have been finalised (usually by end of Week 4), can go to the Student Laptop Hub and request a licence or email the HOD eLearning (see below).

Wheelers ePlatform (eBooks)

Students can download and install the app to read eBooks using Wheelers ePlatform. For more information students can seehttps://qedu.sharepoint.com/sites/2409/Student/MS/Library/
