Essentially, the same as Microsoft Office 2016, the difference between Office 2016 and Office 365 is only which of the cloud services are included.
According to the Microsoft website, both include Office 2016 Windows and Mac versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher.
Access on up to five computers per user, as well as the Office apps on five phones and tablets per user.
To download your copy, go to https://www.volstate.edu/students where Office 365 is listed under “Tools.”
This software is free to you with your Vol State tuition.
Students wanting to get a license for Rosetta Stone software should visit the Language Center at the Learning Commons and pick up a blue Rosetta Stone language user software request card.
Fill out the card with your name, email and which language you would like to request and turn it into Suzanne Previte.
You will receive an email from Rosetta Stone with login information once you can access the program.
Vol State has a finite number of licenses for Rosetta Stone and language students will be given priority.
Previte said that due to the limited number of licenses, after 30 days of non-use, students will receive an email letting them know their license has been canceled, but it can easily be renewed again.
Adobe Products Can Be Purchased with an Educational Discount.
According to Vol State Art Faculty Chair, Nathaniel Smyth, the school has an institutional license for Adobe software for college-owned hardware and a very limited number of additional licenses for faculty.
Smyth recommends that students needing Adobe software take advantage of the educational discount offered by Adobe. Individual student licenses can be purchased beginning at $9.99 per month.
