Opening Moodle Word documents

Opening Moodle Word documents

I tried downloading the Mahara help booklet at home but as it is in a Word 2010 (docx) format and I only have Office 2000 with older versions of Word, my computer couldn't read it.
I have now downloaded it on campus and saved it at a PDF file and e-mailed it to myself but this seems like a long winded way to get the information :o)
Any suggestions for ways to get round this in the future as tutors are now uploading Word documents in docx format and I expect I'll come accross it again with other documents and lecturer's materials?

Hi Pamela, 

You will need to download the Microsoft Compatibility pack from the Microsoft site in order to open docx files in earlier versions of Word. 

Here is a link to download it :

Hope this helps.

Thanks, Anna
