Lotus Symphony 1.3 education offerings

It’s been a while since I checked out the Lotus Symphony Wiki, but I have to say, a lot of impressive new content has been added recently.  

This includes some excellent training material for end users that would be chargeable for most vendor’s products – IBM is providing an amazing resource providing it at no charge:
