Software for Students

As a Delta College student, you get free access to several Microsoft products, including Microsoft Office 365 Suite and OneDrive for Business. 

Microsoft Office 365 Suite

The Microsoft Office Suite includes Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Outlook. You have access to the online version using your Delta College sign-in, but you can also install the desktop version for use offline. Once installed, you may need to sign in using your Delta College username and password to make full use of the software. It can remember your sign-in until your password changes or expires.

You may also wish to install Outlook on your mobile device to quickly receive important notifications from your Delta College email.

OneDrive for Business

OneDrive for Business is a cloud-based file storage platform that allows you to store and share files, as well as access the online versions of Microsoft Office 365 applications.

Respondus LockDown Browser

LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment within D2L Brightspace (eLearning). You'll be unable to print, copy, go to another URL or access other applications when you're in this mode. Instructors may require the use of this browser for quizzes and/or tests in D2L Brightspace (eLearning).

    • Students with an iPad may or may not be able to use Respondus, this is an instructor choice when setting up the quiz.
    • Students with Chromebooks need to follow a different set of directions for installing Respondus.
    • Students with a Chromebook from the school, i.e. Dual Enrolled students, may have additional challenges with school restrictions.
