How Does it Work? When you click on a download item, you have the option to open the document in your web browser or save it to your own computer. It is up to you which option to use. Either way you can get a useable printout. Can I Look at or Download Items Ahead of Time? Yes, if you would like to work ahead, it is perfectly OK to look at or download items before we cover those subjects in class. The only disadvantage to printing items out ahead of time is that you might not be able to make sense out of what you have downloaded or printed out -- or understand the "content" until we study that subject in class.

The word processor will read Microsoft Word files and the presentation package, called "IMPRESS," will read Microsoft PowerPoint files. All of the computers in the 7th grade HAG science classroom are now  running OpenOffice.org software.
