User-friendly Office 2010 to become the standard on campus

04 April 2011

From 1 April, all newly-purchased computers will come pre-installed with Office 2010, and any machines brought into the ICTS workshop will be returned with this new version of Microsoft Office. Apple users shouldn't feel left out, as all new Macs will be sold with Office 2011 for Mac.

Office 2010 has been available to campus since 1 March and UCT staff members are urged to install it. It is intuitive and easy to use, focusing on providing tools that help people create professional-looking documents easily and enhance productivity.

Instructions on how to install and use the new productivity suite are available on the ICTS website. Go to | Desktop Support | Supported Software | Microsoft Office | Microsoft Office 2010.

If you'd like to see what Office 2010 looks like before you dive in, then attend one of the Show & Tell sessions that are taking place across campus during April. A number of sessions have already taken place during March, but you can still attend on one of the following dates:

Kramer Law

Room 4A
13:00 - 14:00, 5 April

Barnard Fuller Conference

Room 1 & 2
09:30 - 10:30; 6, 11, 20 April

You don't need to book; just choose a date that suits you, and arrive early.
