I'm very disappointed with this one. I really wanted to check-out OpenOffice but it wouldn't download. While looking at the overview, there was a specific section labeled for "education." Perhaps in the future it will cooperate.
GoogleDocs did work. This site offered a lot of options. You can use it for spreadsheets, budgets, powerpoints, calendars and more. I think my favorite was Jeopardy.
I think the options that GoogleDocs offers is great. The ability for more than one person to work on a document is really neat - especially with all this talk about collaborating. One thing that annoys me about OpenOffice is that you have to download it. I like being able to access GoogleDocs without downloading a major program - just individual templates. If you have had a great experience with OpenOffice share it with me.
