As a college student in 2010, having good computer skills is more than convenient, it is necessary. At Bacone, we have modems in our dorm rooms, multiple computer labs and wireless access available to all students. We want each student here to be able to take advantage of these resources. Some students may need to learn some basic computer skills in order to be the best student they can. We will do our best to ensure that every Bacone student is equipped with the right computer skills to succeed. In this section you will find helpful information in the area of computer help/skill building.
Logging into Moodle:

What is Open Office?
Open Office is an alternative to Microsoft Office. It is completely free and offers everything that Microsoft does. You can hardly tell the difference (if at all). Most computers at Bacone College use Open Office instead of Microsoft Office, so it is good to be comfortable using it. Because Open Office is free, you can put it on your own computer whenever you want to and begin using it instead of Word, Excel, PowerPoint Access & even Publisher. When you start to use Open Office, **follow the directions on how to save your files.**
