Your MyCC account includes Google Drive, a web-based free alternative to create documents, spreadsheets and presentations. To learn more about how to use Google Drive, go to: http://www.gcflearnfree.org/googledriveanddocs.

There is also a free office suite (like Microsoft Office) called Apache OpenOffice.  You can download it and make it the default program to create/open Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents.  

If you use this program suite, remember to save your documents as Word (.docx). Excel (.xlsx), and PowerPoint (.pptx) to share with students or submit to instructors. To learn more about how to use Apache OpenOffive, go to: http://openoffice.apache.org.
