OR you can save your document in the following formats:
Rich Text Format (.rtf)
Rich text format is a generic formated (keeping the look) document that can usually be opened in any word processor application. The document remains editable and may not print or look exactly the same on the user's computer, especially if you used unique fonts.
Click on File, Save As...
Be sure to choose the Save in: location on your computer, such as My Documents.
Adobe Acrobat (.pdf)
A PDF will require the user to open it in Acrobat Reader and look exactly the same as your original document. Creating a PDF requires that you have the application Adobe Acrobat Professional or Adobe Acrobat Distiller, or are using MAC OSX.
In Microsoft Word, if you have Adobe Acrobat Professional installed, you will see the Convert to Adobe PDF icon. Simply click the left Acrobat icon or choose Convert to Adobe PDF under Adobe PDF in the Toolbar to convert and save your document as a PDF. Be sure to choose the Save in: location on your computer, such as My Documents.
Before proceeding to the next step, make sure you REMEMBER the location of your document on your computer. The safest place would be the "My Documents" folder or by creating a folder called Courses on your Desktop.
