Assignment #86

After my email and blog post about OpenOffice the other day, I got this note from Kaj Kandler

“May I mention, that our Plan-B for OpenOffice.org

http://plan-b-for-openoffice.org/index

is becoming increasingly popular with librarians. And for the time being it is in free beta test as well. Forgive me the plug, somehow I need to get the word out. K

(We are) busy, creating screencasts for non technical users of OpenOffice”

Plan B’s Screencasts are free so check them out.

But also, don’t forget Youtube and Google videos for free instruction.

However, if you’re willing to spend some money ($25/mo) for instruction, try

http://movielibrary.lynda.com/html/index.asp

High quality screencasts and 1000’s of them. A lot of them are free. They’ll teach you everything you’ll ever need to know about things computer.

And don’t forget the Video Professor

http://www.videoprofessor.com/

He’s got lessons on all the most popular applications. He’ll let you go through about a third of each lesson for free THEN for $.99 you can get unlimited access to all his products for the next 99 hours. After that it’s $30/mo. Such a deal!!

Play!!
