Frequently asked questions

Office 365 is cloud-based and provides online access to Office 365 ‘Click to Run’ which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and OneNote.

Office 365 boasts a number of features including:

  • Real-time co-authoring in Word, Excel and PowerPoint
  • Inserting links to stored files instead of sending entire files to co-workers
  • Editing and converting to PDF made easy
  • Working anywhere from any device
  • Ability to install the latest version of Office 2016 on home device using your GOTAFE email address at no cost

As a security requirement, students now have to periodically change their passwords.

Students will be notified via their student email address within 14 days of the required change.

Instructions on how to do so will be within the email.

This happens a lot. Most of the time, it’s because the Wi-Fi instructions have not been completed.

  1. Check to make sure that you are connected to BYOD-STUDENT and not BYOD-PROVISIONING.
  2. Check you’ve followed the correct instructions for your device and you’ve completed each step successfully.

If you have tried these two checks, but still are experiencing difficulty, contact IT Support
