What is free on the web. 1 X 2hr workshop

Organisations and individuals often spend many thousands of dollars on software such as word processors, image editors, spreadsheet and database applications. However what many people do not realize is that there is a lot of free software available that is in many ways equivalent to these expensive counterparts. This workshop will discuss the free alternatives for some of the most popular applications. You will discover that you can set up a professional home office, web design business or digitize your artwork or photos without spending a cent on software. We will look at how free software can be made compatible with their paid for versions, for instance exporting into Microsoft Word, and sharing files with other applications. Participants should be familiar with the operation of a PC.
