I use the "TechnoEditor" in my Microsoft Applications class. The students enjoy the lessons and learn things about Microsoft Word that they didn't know they could do. Very user friendly for both the teacher and student.

I am new to teaching this area. I love your materials.

B. Goekler, Martinsville, IL, Martinsville Jr/Sr High School

I am extremely satisfied with your products. I find the lessons are excellent for my 5th and 6th grade computer literacy students. I am now focusing on TechnoEditor and the students are enjoying it. One of my students this morning said, "Where do you learn all this stuff?" Thanks for your great products.
