Video: Welcome

Hi, I am Lorna Daly and I am going to be your guide on an exploration of the latest release of Project from Microsoft, Project 2007. I've been training people in software applications for the last 16 years, from users afraid to touch the keyboard to those who feel they are old pros. One of the things I like the most about training software is helping people make the transition from one space to the other. When you first open this new Project application you may feel like a novice user, but hopefully you'll feel much better by the time you're done.

Welcome

Hi, I am Lorna Daly and I am going to be your guide on an exploration of the latest release of Project from Microsoft, Project 2007. I've been training people in software applications for the last 16 years, from users afraid to touch the keyboard to those who feel they are old pros. One of the things I like the most about training software is helping people make the transition from one space to the other. When you first open this new Project application you may feel like a novice user, but hopefully you'll feel much better by the time you're done.

Now, what we're going to learn about the Microsoft Project is all of the basics that you're going to need to know about creating a project within the application, so I'm really gearing this towards people that are brand-new to using the Project tool. I hope that you will enjoy these series of movies and learn a lot about Project 2007, and I'll see you again at the end.

There are currently no FAQs about Project 2007 Essential Training.
