More of The OpenCD project

Referring to one my earlier posts about the OpenCD project. I’ve started to see feedback from actual users of the software now who are commenting on how good the software is. Best Training, a learning centre based in West Sussex have even taken this a step further. They have a lot of unemployed learners, who are often on a very limited budget. So they make the most of this software in a really unique way.

"We have Open Office on a CD which we loan to our students so they can install it on their PCs and practise their new skills at home without going to the expense of purchasing MS Office. We have been using the software for about a year now and have found no problems."

I get excited at examples of activities like this that reduce the digital divide. It’s lovely to see. Creativity and ingenuity at its best!
