A free alternative to Office - LibreOffice

If you wish be informed every time there is an update to this blog, just write your email address at the top of the page. 

 One of the most used programs is surely 'Office'. Knowing that most students have financial difficulties to buy this and other programs, we offer a free and open source program – LibreOffice.

 LibreOffice (LO), does not only provide the same services but more. Have a look at the drawing features where it offers a program for drawing and not just a few features for drawing! See Illustration 2.

Mathematics teachers should be proud as they have their own program in LO too. Have a look at illustration 3.

I know what you're thinking….but all my friends use Microsoft Office. How can I work on the same files? Yes of course you can! When working in LO one can save in various formats and you can still read files of other programs such as office. See illustration 1.
