In this course, I'll be demonstrating for you some student-specific Office skills that can be used to create better quality work and save time, both in and out of the classroom. As an educator, I will also discuss what students can do to impress their teachers, and what I've seen from my own students as the best practices in creating visual projects and top-quality work. We will also look at a few tips and tricks in Office that students can use to manage their lives, including budgeting and time management. I hope you enjoy following along as we explore these tools.
