Cool Web 2.0 Tools [Office Replacements]

I found a site which details a tons of Office replacements that are specifically for the teacher and student. It has a number of amazing tools that are free of charge. Below is an exert taken directly from the web page pertaining to the tools:

  • Google Docs & Spreadsheets - One of the more developed online office tools, Google only offers a word processor and spreadsheet, though there have long been rumors of a presentation tool (and recent acquisitions by the company would suggest that they are likely true).
  • Zoho Office Suite - Zoho is one of the most complete online office suites, offering more tools than you'll even find in Microsoft Office's student and teacher version.
  • gOFFICE - No frills gOFFICE has a very familiar look and feel.
  • ThinkFree - ThinkFree can replace Word, Excel, and Powerpoint with its suite of online apps, and they offer downloadable versions of their software as well.
  • EditGrid - EditGrid only does spreadsheets, but does them very well.

  1. Google Docs makes collaboration easy. It refreshes and displays changes to the document fast while other collaborators are reviewing the document.

    OpenOffice is a free, open-source productivity suite with a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation, graphics and database support.
