Q: This course was updated on 01/11/2013. What changed?
A: The entire course was re-recorded to reflect changes to the location of menus and general look of the 2013 interface, as well as features such as larger buttons and a new text-selection tool. We also added new content: a chapter on the new Page Layout tab in the Word Web App, one movie on the ability to add hyperlinks to PowerPoint presentations, and two new movies on slide transitions and slide animations in PowerPoint slideshows.
