ADDISON-WESLEY TAKES THE LOTUS 1-2-3 SPREADSHEET TO COLLEGE

By CBR Staff Writer

Addison-Wesley of Boston has introduced 1-2-3 Student Edition, an educational version of the world’s most widely used business program, Lotus Development Corp’s 1-2-3 spreadsheet package. The 1-2-3 Student Edition is described as a fully functional version of 1-2-3, but has been customised for use in student instruction, and will be sold through college and university bookstores for under $50. Due to be available in April, it will be marketed, documented and distributed to the higher education market by Addison-Wesley and its wholly-owned Benjamin/Cummings subsidiary. The product includes all the features and functions available with the professional version of 1-2-3, but the spreadsheet capacity is reduced to 64 columns and 256 rows where Lotus 1-2-3 offers 256 columns and 8,192 rows. Extensive teacher and student manuals are included with the product and provide lab exercises that were designed by instructors to mesh with college courses. Additional courseware developed by instructors and other software developers for use with specific textbooks or courses will also be able to be used with the the Student Edition, according to the educational publisher.
