Using Microsoft Word 2000 to Review Documents Thurs., June 3, 1-2 PM (repeat of workshop session listed above)

Microsoft Word’s reviewing capabilities have great possibilities for use in class assignments and professional writing. Reviewing features include: reviewers can suggest changes without making permanent changes to the original document; authors can incorporate or ignore suggestions; written assignments can be submitted and reviewed or graded electronically, minimizing paper use and maximizing the number of versions that can be easily stored and compared.

This workshop will provide an introduction to these reviewing features, with participants acting as authors and as reviewers. We will discuss various uses of Word reviewing in classes, and sample exercises will be available for modification during (or after) the workshop to fit particular courses or applications.
