Ministry Licensed Software and Web Services
Improved teaching and learning
The OSAPAC Committee (Ontario Software Acquisition Program Advisory Committee) advises the Ministry of Education on the acquisition of provincial licenses for publicly-funded schools in Ontario. OESS (Ontario Educational Software Service) is the distribution mechanism whereby the software is sent to School Boards, Faculties of Education and First Nations Schools.
Note: OESS ministry-software can only be used for OISE’s academic program use, not for personal use.
Please indicate that you are requesting OESS software or web application software in your message. OISE maintains a library of all current OESS software products.
A range of OESS software and Adaptive Technology is available for student use in the EC computer labs on all computers in the OESS software folder. Other products may be installed at the request of an instructor.
See a list of available computing facilities and software in the EC Labs on the Computer Labs page.
