Free Office Suites
- OpenOffice - Apache OpenOffice is the leading open-source office software suite for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics, databases and more. It is available in many languages and works on all common computers. It stores all your data in an international open standard format and can also read and write files from other common office software packages. It can be downloaded and used completely free of charge for any purpose.
- WPS Office - WPS Office is developed by Chinese software developer Kingsoft. The suite is designed for Windows and Android OS and includes a free word processor, spreadsheet program, and presentation maker. The suite reads and writes files generated by Microsoft Office in addition to its native document types.
- Google Docs - The software provides a nice, central hub for all your documents, and the sheer potential for collaboration makes the software a standout among the rest. You can even create, share, and edit documents with anyone, regardless of whether they have a Google account.
- WeTransfer - This is a great free service, and it doesn't require an account. It will allow you to share large files with multiple people, files that are too large for a regular email.
- Sample WebQuest - This is an example of a basic WebQuest that I made several years ago for high school students.
- Website Concept - This is a website concept that I designed for the Foreign Affaisr Department at Yuexiu University.
