Free Computer Based Training for

I will certainly be the first to admit that I like free, whether it is free (libre) as in free speech or free (gratis) as in free beer. ( For more on free, read The Free Software Definition at )

OO.CBT is an online training portal developed for 2.0 users.

International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has officially approved the OpenDocument Format (ODF) as an international standard in May 2006. This marks an important milestone in the effort to help governments solve the very real problem of finding a better way to preserve, access and control their documents now and in the future. is the most popular application today that supports ODF. We forsee an upcoming wave of users coming on board to join the growing community. However, there are several obstacles that non-OpenOffice users face when switching over from MS Office to, with retraining cost often cited as one of the top concerns. The amount of time and money to be spent on classroom based retraining are considerable, and there is a fixed range of time period where one can opt in for the training. This is one of the fundamental reasons why Resolvo Systems decides to build this online DIY training portal where one can learn at his convenience.
