Access to the department’s ICT network is provided only if the mobile device meets the department's security requirements which, at a minimum, requires that anti-virus software has been installed, is running and is kept updated on the device.
Software installation is the responsibility of the student/parent/caregiver. Valid licences are required for all software present on the device. It is recommended that every device has the following software installed.
‘Microsoft Office Advantage’ allows students to install the Office suite of software (e.g. Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc.) for FREE. Instructions to download, install and activate this software are available from https://learningplace.education.qld.gov.au/microsoft-office-software
The laptop won’t connect to our network if it fails a virus software check. Therefore a reputable antivirus software is a must. There are many different virus protections options available.
Windows 10 has built-in real-time antivirus named Windows Defender. Defender is sufficient to pass the virus software check.
