By the end of this project you will have used LibreOffice Draw to flowchart a process. Flowcharts are commonly used to design new programs and systems by using symbols and arrows to show the flow of the steps in a process. Flowcharts are great visual tools for analyzing and documenting a process. 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.
