We show you how to use both Word and Office to edit the same document and how to do all the usual functions in OpenOffice, as well as where to go to get your questions answered.

Excellent, Ian! I live in the US, Reno, Nevada (Tahoe area) working for Washoe County Library System. The economic downturn has been hard on the library and as a result we are looking for alternatives to the MS proprietary solutions. OO seems to be a good fit for both patrons and staff. With your training videos I hope to expedite this move straight away.

Thank you!

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Ian
