Libre Office is a free alternative to Microsoft Office and is a fully featured office software package consisting of a word processing, spreadsheets, presentation, database and drawing packages. It's similar in features but without the monthly subscription costs associated with using Microsoft Office. As it is free to download everyone can use it and it is regularly updated.

This course includes an introduction to the three main parts of Libre Office including Writer (word processing), Calc (spreadsheets) and Impress (presentation). Files created in Libre will open in Microsoft Office.

Please note, this course is taught in various locations.
