What is DreamSpark?
DreamSpark is a Microsoft Program that supports technical education by providing access to Microsoft software for learning, teaching and research purposes.

It gives students and teachers professional-level developer and designer tools at no cost so that students can chase their dreams and create the next big breakthrough in technology – or just get a head start on their career.

What software is available to me?
Students and employees of De La Salle Santiago Zobel, Inc. (DLSZ) are eligible to download and use a whole range of Microsoft software; from the latest Windows OS, to development suites like Visual Studio, to server applications such as SQL Server.  It also provides detailed references and documentation.

Is it free?
Many of the software offered through DreamSpark would cost thousands of Pesos (sometimes hundreds of thousands) if purchased from a Microsoft reseller.  DreamSpark gives it to DLSZ students and employees FOR FREE!

How do I access the software?
DLSZ has its own DreamSpark ELMS Webstore where students and employees log in and acquire the software.  ELMS stands for Electronic License Management System.  The webstore can be accessed via: https://goo.gl/vjR3b8

You can also find the webstore via: https://www.dreamspark.com/Institution/Access.aspx.
Search for “De La Salle Santiago Zobel”.

What do I use to log in to the ELMS Webstore?
Do not use your MLDs to download software as the installation files tend to be quite large. Windows 10 is roughly 3.4GB!    

To ensure you have enough disk space and to conserve our school’s Internet bandwidth, we highly recommend to use your PC or Mac at home instead.

How do I log in?  What do I need?
