Microsoft Office 2010

We are glad to inform you that the newly released Microsoft Office 2010 is available now for staff's teaching and learning use.  

The launch of Office 2010 is as follows:  

Staff LAN 
Office 2010 is released for installation through the Staff LAN through the Work Desk menu. This will directly replace the Office 2007 products. When a staff member clicks on any of the Office 2010 product option from the Work Desk menu, the upgrade program will check for available storage space of the staff's machine, remove Office 2007 from the machine and then install Office 2010 there. The whole process takes about 20 minutes, depending on the hardware configurations. 

Teaching and learning 
In Semester A 2010-11, we will make available Office 2010 on computers in the CSC Teaching Studios, in Library Information Space and Learning Commons, and in all LTs & Classrooms to support teaching and learning. Office 2010 will replace Office 2007 under the Windows 7 computing environment.  

Apart from using Office 2010 in your office, you may exercise the Work at Home Rights to install Office 2010 to ONE of your home computers. Your department has already collected the DVDs of Office 2010 (Eng), Office 2010 (TC) and Office 2010 Multi-language Packs, and you may borrow the software media from your office for installation. You are reminded to read the Terms & Conditions of the Microsoft Campus Agreement. For details, please visit We will arrange training courses shortly to help you get started using this new version which looks similar to Office 2007.
