This is just a post to highlight how the JCR promotes openness and equality.
The JCR discourages the use of non-proprietary file formats. For a really great article by Richard Stallman on why your shouldn't send word attachments see here. Feel free to remind your tutors of this!
We also encourage the use of free software. This helps JCR members as it runs much better, especially on older hardware. This is also good for the environment.

Please feel free to remind people of the JCR Guidelines as outlined in the itpolicy.
