9 Of The Best Free & Low-Cost Alternatives To Microsoft Office | makeuseof

9 Of The Best Free & Low-Cost Alternatives To Microsoft Office | makeuseof | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

By Aaron Couch

 

"Microsoft Office has dominated the market of text documents, spreadsheets and slide shows for years, and for good reason – it’s one of the very best. However, there’s one drawback and that is the price. Sure, it’s a relatively good investment, but for one reason or another you choose to not pay for it. What do you do?

 

"Thankfully, there are other options – and good ones. These range from web-based apps and local software to free and paid. Although some do cost, all have free options and the price you pay for the paid software is a fraction of what you would pay for Microsoft Office. Through this article I will touch upon any unique features such as mobile capability, cost, user interface and compatibility with Microsoft Office files."

I have been using Open Office for many years with good results.  Also try

the Ipad app OnLive Desktop which provides access to Office programs free of charge.  It is available free at the App Store.

Three Ways to Create Stop-motion Videos @rmbyrne  | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Creating stop-motion and time-lapse videos can be a good way for students to tell a story that they have developed.

Have you ever fallen asleep on the keyboard while clicking through on-demand e-learning modules?  I have. There's lots of page turner and quiz e-learning out there and it bores me to death.  HOWEVER, branching scenarios really change the game.  Learn more about this challenging design process!
