      Greg/or other Lynda Folks:

      My university (Cal State University, Northridge) Comp Sci department is adding one mac specific course to a basic COMP 100 class that teaches computer concepts and Office on the PC.

      There are not a lot of options for this, so I got permission to check with you folks to see what would it cost to do one of these two options.

      1: Provide dvds on each of the four parts of Office for the Mac, or at least Word, Excel and PowerPoint, for about 40 students.

      2: How much would it cost to but it on a citrix like network for 40 licenses. I believe these systems can track and only allow use by ID or by count.

      Any info would be of great use. We love your moodle modules, which are made available to the CSU sytems through a license, so I assume your Office for Mac modules are just as good.
