Free software

Microsoft Office

South Lanarkshire pupils, via their Glow account, now have access to Office 365 to download and install on 5 computers at home. They can also activate the Microsoft Office apps on their iPad/android tablet.

Pupils can install Office on personally owned devices. This will make it easy for every pupil to access the latest version of Office on up to five devices providing both a consistency when learning at home and reinforcing 21st century skills through the use of ICT.

Office 365  can only be downloaded from within the Office 365 component of Glow and therefore pupils will need to know their Glow account details (username and password) in order to access it.

The license to use this service will be rescinded when they leave school and their Glow account is disabled or deleted.

Technical support for this service on personal devices is available online from http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/support/

Serif Suite

Staff and pupils also have access to the Serif Suite of applications including PagePlus, WebPlus, MoviePlus, PhotoPlus and DrawPlus. Log in information will be available from the appropriate Faculty Head.
