Download the Point2Player here
The Point2Player from Point2Educate can now be downloaded and used in your school entirely freely and without creating an account. It provides access to the Naace Computing Toolkit, Microsoft's Learning Suite and a wide range of other content while having absolutely no impact on your school's budget.
For example, we currently have nineteen educational Open Source software titles available for immediate use including Google SketchUp, Hot Potatoes, Audacity, Libre Office and Scratch. They're just a single click away.
We also provide direct links to a range of free online tools for schools, including Office 365 and Microsoft SkyDrive. And we're in the process of adding a library of classic ebooks.
Once you've tried the Point2Player and had the chance to assess the value it offers, you may be interested in other software and resources that we offer. If so, you'll find our eStore built into the Player, so that you can create an account, place an order and then start using your purchase immediately. However, to be clear, no purchase or account is needed in order to use the free resources we offer.
Want to download and install it now? Okay, it's that simple!

Some technical bits
The Point2Player works on the Microsoft Windows platform. You should have no problems running it on these versions:
- Windows XP SP3
- Windows Vista
- Windows 7
- Windows 8
Once you've downloaded and installed the Point2Player it will download and install another piece of software called Application Jukebox. This is the engine that helps our service run. You shouldn't need to directly access this software and so you can delete any desktop shortcuts it adds after installation. Application Jukebox also supports the Microsoft Windows versions above.
If you are intending to deploy the Point2Player on a Windows network, take a look at our Network Guide here.
The Point2Player provides a rich integrated mix of local and online content and so requires a live internet connection to operate.
Note: the Network Guide instructions are written for schools that have an account with us. References to your site access key will not be relevant to schools that do not have an account. You will still be able to deploy and use the free Point2Player without the site access key mentioned in the Getting Started Guide and Network Guide.
