These tutorials for LibreOffice 5.x are designed to help pre-service and in-service teachers learn the suite of free productivity applications included in LibreOffice. But teachers at all levels who need to improve their skills in any of the LibreOffice applications will benefit from working their way through the tutorials. The tutorials are also being used effectively by people who are not teachers, as well as with elementary (5th grade up), middle school, and high school students.
The tutorials, with skill consolidation exercises, cover the essential features of LibreOffice Writer (including mail merge), Calc (including formulas, graphing, charting and Lookup Tables), Base (including reporting), and Impress (including many of the relevant skills that apply to teachers) in the context of the teacher in the K-College classroom. They also include a lesson on LibreOffice Draw.
