Free tools and software to install and use at home and elsewhere
This section of our Virtual Learning Environment will provide you with links and resources to download software which can help you use ICT at home. If you use Microsoft Office at school you can use similar tools for free at home.
Links on this page are to software, which you need to download and install, and online services, which you use through your web browser.
Note that depending on the filtering policy in place at school, access to some of these links may be restricted, although if you have access to the internet at home you will almost certainly be able to download and use these resources there. If you are preparing work on an online service outside of school make sure it's accessible from inside school or you won't be able to access your work!
Some online tools and programs below require plugins or additions for your computer. Use the links below to install them:
