Homeschool family chosen to test Microsoft Office 2010


Meet the McKinneys!

Recently, the McKinney family was chosen to take part in the beta testing for Microsoft Office 2010. Being a homeschooler myself, I ask Angelene a few questions about the experience. Here is our exchange:

How was your family chosen to participate? How did Microsoft even know about your family?

My husband, Matt, works in the IT field and had a friend who mentioned that Microsoft was looking for beta

I think they were intrigued by the homeschool angle-a different demographic for them. They sent us a laptop last July and we attended interactive monthly webcasts that demonstrated how to use features.

Did you use MO2010 in your homeschooling before the trial?
I had not used MO2010 much at all in my homeschooling prior to the beta testing. I would use my computer to check email, print out forms, search for info, etc. I occasionally would use word for a flyer for church and I had attempted one powerpoint presentation.

What did you like most about using MO2010 in homeschooling? How did you actually use the product 'in the trenches' of homeschooling? Why should a homeschooling family not familiar with using MO 'in the trenches' now, consider it? (Continue Reading....)
