This brief course provides a general overview of the Microsoft Office suite. Learn about the different versions of Office, the interface elements of the main applications, common shortcuts, and more.
- [Nick] Microsoft Office started out as a small collection of tools, including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. It has since evolved to be a much larger and more complex suite of business tools that help you do everything from instant messaging with your colleagues and teams to creating complex web sites in SharePoint. So I decided to do a short course, an overview of Microsoft Office designed to help people understand the full landscape so you can identify your learning opportunities.
This course will help you identify which version of Office you have, so that you're able to choose the right courses to help with your learning. I will identify the applications and services that are included in the different versions of Office. Then we will explore some basic software interface elements and some helpful shortcuts that are common to many of the Office applications. If you want to learn more about Office but you're not quite sure where to start, I think this will be a solid launching pad.
