Speaker: Lawrence Cisar, CP, RP, PhD

Do you want to write exercises that can be easily transferred to just about any software program? Do you want to use Power Point but are turned off by MicroSofts fees? Do you want to keep records, create databases, and do other things without all the expenses? Find out about Open Office. This workshop will delve into using Open Office, the free package available at, in many of its aspects. If you already know Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, see a way to use just about all the commands you already know in a more efficient way. Do you want your students to do presentations? Tips on how to get them started on the Presentation side will be shown. PDF making via Open Office will also be shown. This is a workshop so bring your laptops. If you can, download Open Office from before the presentation. Hopefully, everybody will get a chance to create.
