I would love to see mail merge, and styles. Those are two that I need to get better at and having live interaction would be great!

I think an intro session would be great. I have a lot of co-workers who are still a little at sea.

I think some Draw lessons would be nice. It's easier to follow along with things like clicking, dragging, etc.

Some users of the Drupal open source content management system put on online training sessions called the "Drupal Dojo." They use a combination of cross-platform tools: VNC, IRC, and Skype. Those tools might be difficult for some users to tackle though.

My favorite feature of the Drupal Dojo is that screencasts of the training sessions are recorded and archived. Not only can you view sessions you might have missed, but you can also review sections of training sessions, as needed.

Through syndication and posting to video sites, screencasts might open up a whole other avenue of Open Office promotion. You might also be interested in ShowMeDo.com, which has some screencast tutorials on setting up CamStudio, an open source screencast recording utility for Windows.
