Thanks for the note. Yes, it does sound that different tools are
needed depending on the field of study. There should almost be a
mailist dedicated to LibO use for academia where we could collect the
data needed to make LibO a great tool for academia. IMHO, LibO
satisfies quie well in the educational arena, however it does fail
somewhat for the needs of academia. Yes, I have found that in many
instances complaints of failings in providing solid bibliographic
support from professors who had tried OOo.
I think from a marketing point of view, these are areas where we
should perhaps try to improve and involve devs who would be interested
in these areas.
Not sure what to do about this information. Should this be information
be collected in the Marketing list?
Why not add a section on the wiki, maybe under the marketing section for
ideas and suggestions?
Just a though.
That sounds like a plan. In the meantime I have started 2 threads on the
marketing discussion list:
LibO in Academia
LibO in Education (JK-High School and NOT post grad. university/college)
I am interested on how to market the LibO suite in education and taking
inventory of the missing tools required to make it a good solid option
for its use in the educational field.
I am a teacher and I actively promote the OOo/LibO Suite both at the
student level (this is working quite well -- approx. 100 of my students
are now using OOo at the primary level in a school of approx. 350
students) as well as at the educational IT/corporate level (this is NOT
working well as MSOffice has a strong foothold and IT is still refusing
to recognize the .odt as a viable document format ... as well as any
other OASIS format.)
I am hoping that a greater use of the .odt format by students will
eventually force IT to adopt its format in some way.
