Did you know you can access the Microsoft Office suite on your Chromebook?
All current JTCC students have free access to Office 365 by using your MyTyler username and password. This access gives you the ability to log into an online version of Microsoft Office programs on many different devices including Chromebooks, while connected to the Internet. While the desktop “application” versions often have more advanced features, the online version still lets you create, edit, and save files in programs like Word, Excel, & PowerPoint.
HOW TO ACCESS:
On your Chromebook, use Chrome to navigate to http://office.vccs.edu/.
Once there, login with your full John Tyler email address (like email@example.com).
Enter your password.
If it asks if you want to stay signed in, that’s totally up to you!
On the Office 365 homepage, you’ll see the Office 365 apps (includes Outlook, OneDrive for Business, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and more). Click on the one you want to use. It will open up in a new tab in Chrome in your Chromebook.
(*If your class requires a very specific features of an MS Office program, check with your instructor to see if the online version is sufficient.*)
