SOFTWARE HOME USE PROGRAM

FREE Microsoft Office for all staff and students:

Office 365:

From your personal Computer or other personal device - Log in to the Sharepoint portal via www.blsd.ca or your school website - click on 'Utility Links', then 'Portal' (top right side of the web page), you will now be taken to an Office 365 log in page - you can log in with your regular username and password - this log in can be saved so you only need to enter it one time. (Note: you can also change your password on this page) 

A shortcut is to simply go to www.portal.blsd.ca  - that gets you to the same sign-in page

Once in the portal - you will notice a NEW Office 365 link in the top right area of the web page. This is a new menu that provides you quick access to a full suite of apps.  You can install "Microsoft Office for Free" - this is a free service for all students and staff! - just click on the install button (when using a personal device) - copy and paste this url (https://portal.blsd.ca/department/ITS/Pages/default.aspx ) to access some Microsoft Office Quick Start guides

For more information - go the ITS webpage (on a BLSD device - managed bookmarks, EDU links - ITS website)

The Adobe Home Use Program is no longer available for BLSD staff, for Microsoft Office, and other products go to https://blsd.onthehub.com (use your BLSD email address to login)

If you get the message that "no products are available" th​is means your account has expired and you can renew the account to access the software again. Here is a link for a help faq that should get the account reactivated. https://blsd.onthehub.com/WebStore/Support/WebStoreHelpContents.aspx

then click on 'Your Account' and then 'why did my eligibility to order software expire?'
