May I use any word processor program?
Bluefield State recommends that students use the office suite for most online courses; however you may use any word processing format that is available, such as word works or open office.
Most instructors can open any documents in these formats but some will specify that they want, for example, assignments turned in .rtf or .doc or .docx (Microsoft Word) format. Make sure that you have read your syllabus and or any assignment instructions so that you know what format to save your file in before you submit it.
* Please submit your assignments in whatever file format is requested by the instructor.
