Using LibreOffice Base to Teach Relational Database Management
Dominique Welt, Ph.D. Candidate and instructor at McGill University, writes:
This summer, my paper on using LibreOffice Base to teach relational database management was featured at the Twenty-eighth Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS). AMCIS is the Americas’ major conference for management information systems scholars. The paper draws from my experience using LibreOffice Base to teach relational database management at McGill University in 2021.
You can consult the paper and watch the video presentation using this link to the conference proceedings, which also features a video presentation.
This is where it would be useful that marketing and the documentation teams to come together to promote this functionality, learning SQL is not an uncommon use case and as BASE has this functionality perhaps this could be another avenue of promotion that could specifically target schools, universities etc.
The main problem, that I have, with ALL technology, including Libre, is that NONE of the content is presented in the same kind of basic English, which I am using, here.
100% of the content is written in computer code, and requires a five year, computer-programming degree, just to understand what the content actually means.
This is why I DONT use 95% of this software. It is because NONE of it is presented in the basic English, which I understand.
