Dardanelle Tech Tips: Free Microsoft Office for Students and Staff

 

As part of our licensing Agreement with Microsoft, we can offer Microsoft 365 accounts to all Dardanelle Students and Staff at no extra cost to the district.

With these accounts, each user can install Microsoft office on up to 5 personal devices. This will include all of the most popular Office Apps (Publisher, Access, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook)

 


What is Microsoft 365?

 

Microsoft 365 is the new name for Microsoft cloud products and offerings.  It offers a lot of the same functionality as what Google Cloud Services offer, but with Microsoft products.

With a subscription to Microsoft 365, you get:

  • The latest Office apps, like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook.
  • The ability to install on PCs, Macs, tablets, Chromebooks and phones.
  • 1 TB of OneDrive cloud storage.
  • Feature updates and upgrades not available anywhere else.

 

How do I get Access?

 

You can login by going to the Microsoft login page:

 

https://login.microsoftonline.com

 

Your username will be your domain name (Ex: jon.george) plus @dardanellelizards.com.

For most everyone, the username will be the same as their email address (Ex: jon.george@dardanellelizards.com). 

Your password will sync from the Active Directory, so it should be the same as the one to log into your windows system. 

If you have any issues getting in, send us over an email.

 

 

Note: The License is active as long as the user remains a student or staff member at Dardanelle Schools.
