Vertex42 - Excel Templates, Calendars, Calculators and Spreadsheets | technologies | Scoop.it
Excel templates, calendars, calculators, spreadsheets, and other Excel solutions for business, home, and educational use.
John Dalziel's insight:

One of the reasons why staying afloat is so challenging, for many learners, is because money, for many, is...
   - such an abstract concept.
   - just numbers on a page, or pieces of paper in a wallet.
Functional Skills, I hear many of you thinking!
But what if that wasn’t the case?
What if learners could easily and accurately visualize their financial health?
Wouldn’t it be great if they knew where their money was, at all times?
Vertex42 has a range of spreadsheets that make this possible), and more (Note: They need adapting for UK use as they use US Dollars not £.

Flippity.net: Easily Turn Google Spreadsheets into Online Flashcards

Flippity.net: Easily Turn Google Spreadsheets into Online Flashcards | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:

Flippity is a good tool that practitioners and or their learners can use to create flashcards for any number of topics.
Flippity...
- is a free tool for creating flashcards from data in a Google Spreadsheet.
- provides clear directions for the simple steps to take to create the flashcards.
To create flashcards use the Flippity template, enter the data, publish the spreadsheet to the web, then grab the Flippity link.
The Flippity link will take users to a Flippity page on which practitioners and their learners can flip through the flashcards. Flippity also includes a shuffle function and an option to remove cards from your deck of flashcards as users flip through them.

 

My first effort is at http://www.flippity.net/cards.asp?k=0AiqQd33EsQ_gdDhFWXZEdEVrQkdJUlVkQU1DR2t3Q3c

CPD: Five Google Spreadsheet features

CPD: Five Google Spreadsheet features | technologies | Scoop.it

In the real world, many companies continue to use Google Apps and Microsoft Office products in tandem because of their users’ reliance on Excel.

 

However, several updates during the past few months, combined with the Google Spreadsheets’ hundreds of functions and ability to derive information from other Google products like Search and Finance, have leveled the playing field, even giving Google Spreadsheets capabilities that Excel may never have.

 

It's time for practitioners,their learners and other users to revisit and re-evaluate the five features covered in this post.

Microsoft Office Online - Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on the web

Microsoft Office Online - Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on the web | technologies | Scoop.it
Collaborate for free with online versions of Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote. Save documents, spreadsheets, and presentations online, in OneDrive. Share them with others and work together at the same time.
John Dalziel's insight:

Microsoft’s Office Online is a completely free, web-based version of Microsoft Office.

This online office suite is clearly competing with Google Drive, but it’s also a potential replacement for the desktop version of Office.
Unlike all of Microsoft’s other Office products, Office Online at office.com is completely free.
This is Office Online’s biggest advantage over desktop versions of Microsoft Office.

It  can be used on all the PCs you want without paying for additional boxed copies or subscribing to Office 365, Microsoft’s subscription service for Office.
Because it’s a web application that runs in your browser, Office Online will run on everything, from Linux PCs and Chromebooks to iPads and Android tablets.

It doesn't require any special plug-in and works in any popular browser, including Firefox, Chrome, and Safari — not just Internet Explorer.
Should you use Office Online?

Well, that’s up to you. If you’d like a completely free version of Office it’s a compelling option.

On the other hand, you may need the more advanced features in the desktop version of Office.
NOTE: it does provide access to learners who can't afford the desktop version of office.

Andy Kenworthy's curator insight, February 27, 2014 6:21 AM

This could be very handy for editing documents on the move when a desktop or laptop running the full suite isn't available and for collaborating with a team. I will be looking in to this further.

Install doctopus from any Google Spreadsheet, though preferably one that you can use as a one-time register for tracking a particular project with a particular group of learners.
