In this project, you will create a new document from scratch using the basic features and functionality of the Office Libre Writer application. You will work on creating a basic agenda for a Change Control Board (CCB) meeting for an IT team of an organization. You will add and edit text with different formats in the document. You will create a bulleted list of attendees and a numbered list of topics to discuss. You will also look at ways to change the layout of the page by adding a border. You will add a functional table and a picture that resembles a real-world use case. Lastly, you will learn how to print the document directly to a printer, and even print, export or Save As in a different format like Adobe’s PDF for sharing via email. The skills learned in this course can be applied to creating other basic forms of a resume, letter, report, or just for simple note taking. The amazing part of this is that the Office Libre Writer and the entire application suite is free for download and use anywhere. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
