More on Microsoft Word
As mentioned, Microsoft Word is the word processing software program recommended for online learning classes. Students should use this program when preparing documents to be emailed to instructors. Instructors on IECC campuses utilize this program and may not be able to open documents prepared in software programs such as Word Perfect. Microsoft Office 365 is available for download at no charge via the student's Entrata account.
