Office 2016 is very different from Office 2003, not just in its appearance, but also in how you perform tasks and access features and functions. In this movie, you will know what is needed to follow along smoothly in this course, such as prior knowledge of Office 2003, access to Office 2016, and a microsoft account for making use of cloud computing.
- [Voiceover] This course is designed to help users of Office 2003 make a smooth transition to Office 2016. So, to get the most out of this course, you should already have some familiarity with Office 2003. In many of the movies, I'll be showing you how to use new features in Office 2016 that didn't exist in Office 2003, as well as perform tasks that were performed differently in Office 2003. 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 use an existing Hotmail account or Windows Live account. 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 well with touch-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 2003 to 2016.
