If anyone is receiving tablets, laptops or other devices from Santa, this is a great way of accessing Microsoft products such as word and powerpoint without the expense of purchasing!
Office 365 ProPlus
All Glow users, can get copies of Microsoft Office 2016 to use on their home devices – PC, Mac, phones and tablets.
This will enable the use of a range of Microsoft products (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, OneNote etc) on up to 15 home devices without cost (the 15 licences being split as 5 for PCs and/or Macs, 5 for tablets and 5 for phones).

Note that if downloading to an iPad or iPhone the process is different, the apps should be downloaded from the App Store and then log in using the Glow username. There is more information from Microsoft available here.
When logging in, you will be asked to enter your user name and this is your Glow user name plus the domain e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org, once you do this, you will be transferred to the usual Glow login screen, when you enter your details here your registration is complete.
