Early draft

This page lists the benefits for Educational establishments

  • Skills taught should be as ‘generic’ as possible and not tied to one vendor’s product
  • File and 'look and feel' compatibility with MS-Office
  • Being able to give away software is a good ‘selling point’ for courses
  • Excellent value for money
  • Powerful enough to cope with long academic documents, dissertations, etc
  • Build co-operative skills across the internet - OpenOffice.org is an international community with multiple opportunities for participation
  • No worries about license compliance / need to audit PCs
  • Good product to teach/learn: learn once, use anywhere
  • Likely to be available in local languages (could be translated as a community effort)
  • Network installation available for ease of administration
