To be able to follow along in this course, there are certain things every learner will already need to know or have. In this movie, you will know that you should already have some experience with Office 2013, and you will know that you will need to have Office 2016 installed to perform the tasks performed in this course.
- [Voiceover] This course is designed to help users of Office 2013 make a smooth transition to Office 2016. So, to get the most out of this course, you should already have some familiarity with Office 2013. In many of the movies, I'll be showing you how to use new features in Office 2016 that didn't exist in Office 2013, as well as perform tasks that were performed differently in Office 2013. So, to follow along with me, you'll obviously need to have Office 2016 installed. To make use of cloud computing, you'll also need to have, or set up, a Microsoft account online.
It's free, and it gives you access to free storage in the cloud. You can even use an existing Hotmail account, or Windows Live account if you have one. I'll be working with Office 2016 installed on a desktop computer, using an Office 365 for business account. And, I'll be using the mouse and keyboard to perform tasks. Although Office 2016 works very well in touch mode enabled devices and monitors, the mouse and keyboard remain the most popular way to use Office 2016.
So, with so much to cover, let's get you migrating from Office 2013 to 2016.
- Recognize the changes to the user interface.
- Describe when you would use Touch mode.
- Explain how to quickly format shapes.
- Cite how to quickly choose a chart type.
- Name the pane that opens up when a picture is added to a slide and describe what it does.
- Explain how to import your contacts, email, calendars, and more.
