                                    So, you’ve learned to plan your day by optimizing your schedule. You’ve blocked your calendar to accurately reflect the time you actually need to complete tasks.

                                    After you’ve mastered formatting tables of data, creating formulas between cells, using built-in functions, and creating charts, there is a standard set of more powerful features you’ll eventually need. Whether you’re looking at someone else’s spreadsheet and wondering “how did they do that?” or simply lacking enough firepower to get your own spreadsheets to do what you want, this class will probably solve that problem.

                                    Database Features. You may be thinking “I use spreadsheets, not databases!” — but there are a few indispensable Excel features that mirror the most useful of features from the world of databases: lookups and aggregate functions. A “lookup” in Excel is when your formula looks up values in a secondary worksheet (just like a database!) and puts them in the primary worksheet: for example, looking up in worksheet B the inventory amount adjacent to a cell containing a particular SKU, and putting it in worksheet A, adjacent to the cell containing that same SKU. Likewise, the SUMIF(), COUNTIF(), and similar Excel functions are counterparts of “aggregate data” calculations in databases – useful, for example, if you wanted to sum up the order values shipped to a particular zip code.

                                    Errors. You’ve probably encountered your fair share of errors that Excel has vociferously pointed out with: “#N/A” and “#NUM!” It turns out there’s an easy way to deal with these errors, either by intercepting them and providing a backup value, or by auditing and fixing them once and for all. We’ll show you the two surefire methods of handling these errors.

                                    Finding the Right Value(s). Sometimes you need to measure variations in a single cell value, like product price, to optimize the value of another cell, like profits. Other times, you need to optimize multipleinterconnectedcells, like price, volume, and inventory – to find the optimal value for profits. These two what-if scenarios are handled by the “Goal Seek” and “Solver” functions in Excel. Get ready to impress your boss.

                                    Macros. These are recorded steps that can be memorized for later playback. For example, if you find yourself splitting text into columns along a delimiter and then conditionally formatting certain rows, you might want to record those steps and then instantly reapply them to a new table. These steps are saved in Excel's internal programming language, VBA (Visual Basic for Applications). Once you've recorded your steps, you can dive into the behind-the-scenes VBA code that activates those steps and customize them even further.

                                    Pro Techniques. On your way to becoming an Excel pro, you’ll need a toolkit of useful standard tips, tricks, and techniques. Among these, you’ll probably find that functions such as LEFT(), MID(), and Excel’s Text-To-Columns and Consolidating Data features are the ones you’ll use the most often. We’ll show you why those are so popular and how to use them.

                                    This class is for users familiar with primary Excel features but who need more powerful features like lookups, error-handling, macros and scenario analysis.

                                    Mastery of Excel is developed in stages: first you learn basic formatting, functions and formulas, and build a few spreadsheets yourself. Easy enough. But moving to the next level of proficiency is hard! To create truly professional-looking spreadsheets, you'll need to know how to organize data into elegant, interactive tables that dynamically generate colorful charts and graphs. To bring you up to an intermediate-level usage of Excel, we'll train you in how to use these core features:

                                    • Advanced Tables. Beyond organizing data in rows and columns, we'll show you how to create filters that display only certain rows: for example, all the rows where the "City" column is set to "New York." You'll also learn how to sort entire tables based on values in one or more columns: for example, sorting customers by annual revenue. You'll learn how to instantly colorize, stripe, filter and subtotal a simple table of data using Excel's ever-popular "Format As Table" feature.
                                    • Charts. Excel has 10 major chart types, everything from basic line charts to scatter plots. We'll show you how to add impressive data visualizations to your spreadsheets: line charts, bar graphs, pie charts, and more.
                                    • Pivot Tables. One of Excel's most powerful — and least understood — features, pivot tables auto-magically convert static rows and columns of data into a responsive table that will re-organize itself to instantly display subtotals, averages, or other aggregate functions — depending on which fields you choose. Instead of creating 3 different tables to see sales by customer rep, customers by city, and revenue by state, you'll learn how to create a single pivot table to display all 3 sets of information in one place, based on your selection of different field groupings. You'll also learn how to generate pivot charts from the data.
                                    • Tips & Tricks. The training also covers a few techniques we've selected as the most useful in your journey toward Excel mastery. These include "conditional formatting": coloring cells based on their values (e.g., heat maps); removing duplicates (common in data cleanup); data validation: preventing anything except certain data types (e.g., dates) being entered in a cell; and cell protection: preventing accidental typing into a cell with a formula.

                                    After Intermediate Excel, you'll be ready for advanced Excel training.

                                    This class is for those who already use functions, formulas and cell references — but want to enhance their spreadsheets with responsive tables, advanced charts and pivot tables.

Our Excel Introduction class leads you, step-by-step, through the basics of this popular spreadsheet program. There's plenty of time for practice and hands-on exercises to cement your new knowledge.

                                    As we go through the training, you'll recognize — and finally understand — the very same features you've seen in Excel spreadsheets at work. By the end of this class you'll be making those kinds of spreadsheets yourself, documents such as:

                                    • Lists. These could be lists of employees, products, customers, or anything else... Lists take advantage of Excel's formatting in rows and columns. You'll learn how to format and freeze table headers; change fonts, sizes and colors; and set printing specs.
                                    • Tabulations. Excel is great at number-crunching and offers a slew of arithmetic functions you can apply to your data, like averages, sums, and counts.
                                    • Computations. Typically financials, these could be budgets, income statements, invoices, tax computations or similar. These spreadsheets contain values that are tied together by formulas so that changing one instantly changes the others: for example, the same way changing revenue immediately flows through to a change in profits. The key to creating these tied-together spreadsheets is learning how to correctly reference the spots where data is kept ("cells") using formulas in other cells.

                                    After Excel Introduction, you'll be ready for some of our other Excel classes

                                    This Excel Introduction class is for anyone who would like to learn how to build and format spreadsheets with functions and formulas between cells.

                                    Pivot tables are arguably Excel's most powerful feature, and most likely to impress your boss. At first glance, pivot tables seem quite mysterious: with a quick drag-and-drop, your data somehow reorganizes itself into interesting groupings and useful totals. There are more than a few organizations whose critical business decisions rely on carefully designed pivot tables. Unfortunately, because they accomplish so much behind the scenes" it's hard to figure out how pivot tables actually work — and scary to try to modify existing ones. That's where our trainers come in: they love nothing more than demystifying tricky features like pivot tables. After this class, you'll be the one creating pivot tables to capture insights about your company's data. Here's what you'll learn:

                                    • Cleanup. The data in your spreadsheet needs to meet certain criteria before it can be turned into a pivot table. We'll show you how to clean the data, designate the cells you want to become a pivot table, place it exactly where you want, and format it nicely in color.
                                    • Manipulation. The advantage of a pivot table is being able to entirely rearrange your view of the data with nothing more than a few mouse clicks. For example, which is more useful: orders by city, revenue by customer, or orders by salesperson? Being able to easily switch these parameters — within the same worksheet — is what makes pivot tables so useful.
                                    • Aggregate Functions. Seeing different views of the data is only useful if you can summarize (aggregate) information about that data: what were the totals, averages, medians and counts for each different view of the data? We'll show you how to apply these functions and filter the results to find the true insights.
                                    • Pivot Charts. As with normal tables of data, it's helpful to create charts that illustrate the pivoted views of the data. We'll show you how to present the data from pivot tables in colorful visualizations (unless you prefer black and white).
                                    • Big Data and "Power" Features. Excel has a limit of only one million rows, and if you've ever tried using them all, your computer probably slowed to a crawl. Enter the family of "Power" features: Power Query, Power Pivot, Power View, Power Map, and Power BI. These features allow you to import hundreds of millions of rows of data — even from multiple databases simultaneously — and use them in a spreadsheet. We'll show you how to get this so-called "big data" using Power Query and then apply calculations using Power Pivot. Ultimately, you'll be able to turn them into pivot tables, pivot charts and other data visualizations.

                                    This class is for users familiar with standard Excel features but who need more efficient and powerful ways of manipulating their data. Others may have inherited pivot tables, and want to understand and modify them.

                                    Even if you're already a "power user" with a few pivot tables under your belt and a good grasp of charts and other standard Excel topics, there are a few next-level features and techniques that truly distinguish the Excel pros. With a little guidance from one of our amazing trainers, these features won't be hard for you to pick up and will significantly enhance your spreadsheets:

                                    Lookups. In a database like MS Access you can look up data by joining tables along shared fields, like a customer ID in both the Customers and Orders table. This feature also exists in Excel: you can look up values in one worksheet and put them in another worksheet based on a related field: for example, look up the sales figure adjacent to a cell containing "January" in worksheet B, and put it into worksheet A adjacent to the cell containing "January." We'll show you how to do this and troubleshoot common problems.

                                    Pivot Table Enhancements. Need to customize a pivot table to add extra info? Excel provides a number of features to add calculated values, and data groupings into otherwise vanilla pivot tables. To help users change the way your pivot table displays, you can add timelines and "slicers" to select only certain types of data or specific date ranges.

                                    Charts and Advanced Formatting. The choice of chart type can make a huge difference in how easy it is to glean insights from your data. We'll show you how to choose the right charts based on your data. Have two types of data in the same chart (e.g., temperature and rainfall) with different units? You'll learn how to add secondary axes using "combo charts" and get them to display exactly as you want. Along the way you'll master some advanced conditional formatting rules.

                                    Macros and VBA. Macros are recorded steps that can be memorized for later playback. For example, if you find yourself formatting all your tables the same way (frozen header rows, banded rows and thin gray border), you might want to record those formatting steps and then be able to reapply them to any new table. These steps are actually saved in Excel's internal programming language, VBA (Visual Basic for Applications). Once you've recorded your steps, you can dive into the behind-the-scenes VBA code that activates those steps and customize them even further.

                                    This class is for users who are already proficient in formulas, functions, cell references, charts, and basic pivot tables.

                                    Sooner or later, every Excel user runs into a problem that can’t be solved with a built-in function or feature. What if, for example, you had a worksheet with 20 cities and you wanted to put their current temperatures in each adjacent cell. There’s no feature for that in Excel! That’s where Visual Basic for Applications (“VBA”) comes in. VBA is a programming language built right into Excel and other MS Office applications. You can write VBA code to grab parts of Excel (cells, rows, menus, etc.) — and even data from the web — and programmatically change their values. You can also change their properties: sizes, colors, fonts, etc. Automating repetitive tasks is another popular use of VBA.

                                    The Coding Environment. Microsoft provides a separate free app to help you write code, the “Visual Basic Code Editor.” You can launch it right from Excel. It has features for organizing your code, giving you hints about what the functions should look like, and debugging your program while watching it run, step-by-step.

                                    Programming Basics. Don’t worry if you haven’t written code before. Microsoft has gone out of its way to make VBA as simple as possible. We’ll cover the basics (no pun intended) of coding: grabbing onto Excel cells and changing their properties, getting input from the user, tracking changeable values in “variables,” executing different chunks of code depending on if-this-then-that decisions, and repeating a chunk of code multiple times.

                                    Interacting with your User. The power of VBA becomes clear when you can ask the person looking at your spreadsheet to click on a button, have a nice-looking form pop up, and let them type in some data or choose options from a dropdown box — and then have your custom VBA code process that data and make intelligent updates to the underlying spreadsheet. We’ll show you how to build those forms, visually, with a drag-and-drop editor.

                                    Error Handling. Coding errors are about as inevitable as death and taxes. Fortunately both the code editor and the VBA language itself provide a number of ways to ease the burden of debugging, whether it’s stepping through your code and executing it line-by-line or by anticipating errors in advance and providing alternate chunks of code to execute. Having good debugging skills and mastery of the tools is critical.

                                    This class is for Excel users who need to add interactive features and automations to their workbooks and spreadsheets.

                                    Beyond simple averages and totals, Microsoft Excel offers many features to help you draw insights from your data. Sometimes those observations come from a particular formatting or visualization of the data; other times a specific summary function will generate a surprisingly significant result. Here are some of the techniques you'll learn:

                                    Table Formatting. Cleaning up your data involves tasks like removing duplicates, eliminating empty rows, and making sure data types are correct. Once you have a well-formatted table, you can take advantage of Excel's many features to sort, filter, and colorize it — revealing hidden patterns.

                                    Conditional Functions. You may have data that you want to exclude from your calculations: for example, too-low or too-high outliers, or relating to discontinued products, or months with sales promotions. To exclude this data from your summaries, you can use functions like SUMIF, AVERAGEIF, and COUNTIF — applying them to exclude data that doesn't meet certain criteria.

                                    Charting. Whether it's a pie chart, line graph, or scatter plot, "a picture is worth a thousand words." It's critical to choose the right type of chart to visualize your data so the viewer can quickly make sense of it. We'll show you how to decide which chart works best with your data.

                                    Pivot Tables. Many spreadsheets follow a pattern with a few heading fieldsand many rows based on one field, like order number (sales tables) or product SKU (inventory tables). In the case of sales data, a table will typically have column headers like location, quantity, order number, price, and such. Each row might represent one order. Turning a typical table like this into a pivot table allows you to quickly change the way you 1) view the data: orders by date vs. orders by location; and 2) group the data for aggregate functions: total orders by location, average quantity by order, etc. It's one of Excel's most powerful tools, and can be used in conjunction with pivot charts to easily visualize your data along different dimensions.

                                    This beginner data analysis course is designed for Excel users who need to analyze, summarize and visualize their data. Basic knowledge of Excel is recommended: familiarity with formulas, cell referencing, and simple functions like SUM and AVERAGE.

                                    Outcomes:

                                    • Understand the risks of biased, instinctual decision-making
                                    • Introduce how to rebalance the scales for both clear-eyed deliberation and human intuition
                                    • Learn the four decision-making models 
                                    • Begin the habit-changing process for making better, quick, in-the-moment decisions 

                                    This workshop is ideal for those in decision-making positions, especially leaders and managers who have the benefit of time and teams.

                                    Intra-office chat systems like Slack and Microsoft Teams are a smart alternative to today’s overflowing email inboxes and abandoned voicemails. MS Teams is actually much more than just a chat system; it offers phone calls, videoconferences, document attachments, website chat box integration, topic channels, and more.

                                    Chat. After giving an overview of how to get around Teams, we’ll show you its primary feature: chat. Instead of sending an email, contacting a colleague by chat is much more effective when you need their immediate attention. Chat is a less formal way of communicating with coworkers, so you can safely intersperse emoji and customized Grumpy Cat memes. If you need to share a file with a coworker, it’s easier and faster than sending an email attachment.

                                    Calls and Videoconferences. When you need more context to explain yourself, you can easily switch from chat to voice call or videoconference. We’ll show you how to manage a contact list within Teams, initiate calls, launch videoconferences, and share your screen. Like its competitor Zoom, MS Teams has a number of settings related to videoconferencing.

                                    Building a Team. A larger organization will want to ensure that there are global “channels” for company-wide messaging and team-specific channels for individual office branches or departments. We’ll show you how to create teams and topic-specific channels for chat discussions between employees.

                                    Outlook Features. Instead of being a replacement for email, the best way to use MS Teams is as a complement to Outlook: integrating it with calendars, meetings, and more. We’ll show you how to use these two cornerstone applications in harmony.

                                                Are your usual pie charts getting yawns in meetings? Power BI, like its competitor Tableau, is Microsoft’s software for building sophisticated “data visualizations”: elegant and often interactive graphical representations of your data – beyond what you can find in Excel or even Crystal Reports. In this class we’ll show you how to navigate the software so you can build and publish the kind of data-based reports that will get the office talking.

                                                Prepping Data. After we’ve shown you the basic navigation and main areas of Power BI, we’ll cover how to import your data and clean it up. You can get data from multiple sources: Excel, SQL Server, XML and online services like Azure and Google Analytics. You can even combine tables from different sources by designating “join” relationships between them. Along the way we’ll show you how to set cleanup rules for any messiness in your imported data.

                                                Different Visualizations. Once your data is ready, you’ll learn how to create stunning visualizations from it: bubble charts, heat maps, geographic shape maps, and more. You’ll learn how to publish them as standalone documents to bring to your next meeting.

                                                Extending Data. In addition to simple data cleanup, Power BI offers tools to shape and combine data, including Power Query and Data Analysis Expressions (DAX), a toolkit of functions and formulas to return calculated values. This lets you incorporate key business summary data into your visualizations.

                                                Publishing Options. Once your visualization is perfected, you can share it with others online by posting it to Office 365 or the Power BI mobile app. You’ll also learn how to embed reports into web pages, or post them to SharePoint or MS Teams. Finally, we’ll show you how to build interactive dashboard reports to combine your different data visualizations.

                                                This class is for data analysts and managers who want to find business insights by creating impactful and elegant data visualizations.

                                                Audiences are all too familiar with PowerPoint slide decks having the usual titles, headings, bullets and stock photos – so it can be a real eye-opener to experience a presentation with custom transitions, animations, and embedded videos! This class will take your slide decks to that “next level.”

                                                Customizations. PowerPoint not only lets you customize the Ribbon buttons, but everything on the page itself, including the design elements: the background, headers, footers, and related templates like the Notes and Handouts “Master” slides.

                                                Audio, Video, Animations. Imagine punctuating a point in your presentation with an audio clip from the poet Robert Frost, or a video of your CEO demonstrating a new product. Audio and video can add life to your slides, but they require production and editing. Animations are a less resource-intensive alternative to add zest to your presentations – and they’re not as hard as you might think.

                                                Review and Delivery. With Microsoft OneDrive, you can save your presentation to the cloud and collaborate with your coworkers on revisions. For your own prep, you can annotate your presentations, rehearse timings, and record and replay your presentation narration.

                                                Tips and Tricks. We’ll cover a few of the biggest bang-for-buck features available in PowerPoint, such as Action Buttons for navigating a slideshow delivery; zooming in to see larger images; customizing slideshows for beginner vs. advanced audiences, and more.

                                                This class is for users who can create and format PowerPoint presentations with text, graphics and charts, but want to add audio, video, animations and other advanced features.

                                                PowerPoint is Microsoft’s flagship application for creating multi-page presentations, pitch decks, tutorials, and even one-pagers like infographics, flyers and posters. In contrast with MS Word, PowerPoint gives you more control over where images and text appear on each page. Learn to use PowerPoint the right way and you’ll be amazed at how quickly you can put together clean and impactful presentations!

                                                Starting Out. PowerPoint shares the same user interface as other MS Office 365 apps and we’ll show you how to navigate it. You’ll learn about the different ways of looking at your slide deck: normal (slide view), outline, sorter, handouts, notes and a few more. We’ll show you how slides are integrated into an automated outline using title and subtitle text boxes.

                                                Design Features. PowerPoint offers several built-in features to make your presentations look like they’ve been professionally produced. You’ll try out choosing different templates, themes, and layouts to find the style most appropriate for your audience. We’ll also demonstrate PowerPoint Designer, an AI tool that examines the text on each slide and suggests attractive design schemes and relevant accompanying illustrations.

                                                Formatting Text. You won’t get all the options you see in MS Word, but PowerPoint still lets you create bulleted and numbered lists, indented paragraphs, and the usual font, tab and color options. Squeezing text into available spaces on a PowerPoint slide is indeed an art form!

                                                Adding Graphics. You can spice up your slides by inserting pictures, shapes, and clip art. PowerPoint gives you access to millions of clip art illustrations and stock photos. We’ll show you how to resize, crop, and position them exactly where you want them, and order them in front of, or behind, other graphics. You can even import charts and tables from Excel.

                                                Delivery. Most PowerPoint files are presentations meant to be delivered in real-time in front of an audience. Fortunately PowerPoint offers a number of features to perfect your delivery, from slide transitions to handouts to timing practice. We’ll show you how to keep those butterflies in your stomach by using these features to ensure your presentation is well-received.

                                                This class is for anyone who needs to create or edit high-quality presentations with complex combinations of text, graphics, tables and charts.

                                                Worried your audience will find your presentation difficult to follow, or worse, boring? It’s one thing to carefully put all your insights and data into a presentation, but it’s another thing entirely to keep an audience engaged as you deliver it. You’ll also need to optimize your slides so they’re easy for you to narrate and easy for your audience to understand and remember. This class gives you the tools and techniques to make sure your presentations will be enjoyed, understood, and remembered (even if you’re not a high-energy speaker).

                                                Engaging Presentations. We’ll show you what to know about your audience, how to adapt your presentation to them, how to use storytelling techniques, and how to get your audience to grasp and remember critical points.

                                                Optimal Slide Content. We’ve all seen slides crammed with too many bullets and images. We’ll teach you the rules for when to make the difficult decision to drop content. You’ll also learn multiple ways to make content available outside your presentation. We’ll also teach you how to selectively emphasize the most important content, and when to use animations and humor.

                                                Design Considerations. PowerPoint isn’t Photoshop, so it’s surprising how design choices can make the difference between a dull and an engaging presentation. Learning just a few simple design rules will make a big difference in how well your audience receives your presentation. Whether image backgrounds, white space, or fonts, following a few design rules and norms will ensure you create nothing but “clean” slides!

                                                This class is for presenters who are familiar with PowerPoint features but need to get better at delivering presentations and conveying information effectively.

                                                SharePoint is similar to WordPress in that it is a customizable website with add-ons, but unlike WordPress, SharePoint is specifically for intranets: websites visible to employees only. For the add-ons, Microsoft has collected the best features of its software applications. Which applications? Here are some: spreadsheets, calendars, contact lists, file shares, instant messaging, wikis, task lists, discussion boards, workflows, etc. – pretty much everything and the kitchen sink. Working in a SharePoint environment can be confusing at first since you’re presented with so many individual features – but with our trainer’s guidance and some hands-on practice, you’ll learn how the parts fit together and quickly become productive.

                                                Sites and Apps. A “Site” is SharePoint’s term for a section of your intranet, for example, the Accounting department of your organization. In that Site you might find a contact list of employees in that department, a shared calendar of tax deadlines, a document library of tax forms, and a set of workflows for accounts receivable and payable. To set up these features, the site owner would have earlier installed a corresponding “App” to add sections to the Site to handle those features. We’ll show you how to navigate the basic Site structures and use the most common Apps.

                                                Office 365 Collaboration. Since you can upload MS Office files to SharePoint, it only makes sense that you should be able to edit them inside a web environment, and indeed you can. You can also choose whether to have exclusive editing abilities (check-in/check-out features), or if you want to have multiple employees be able to simultaneously edit Excel, Word, and similar files, just like Google Docs. We’ll also show you how to set up content approval workflows using versioned documents where employees handle them at different stages.

                                                Lists and Libraries. Whether your data is from a worksheet in Excel, an address book from Outlook, or a timeline of dates and duration from MS Project, these all have the same structure: they are lists of rows with column headings. SharePoint makes it easy to work with “Lists” like these – and in this class you’ll learn how to put them to good use. “Libraries,” on the other hand, are like folders full of documents, but with extra features that make it easier to organize and search them. We’ll show you when to use Lists and when Libraries are better.

                                                This class is for end users that are new to SharePoint and want to learn how they can create, update, and find resources on their organization’s internal SharePoint sites.

                                                Once you’ve learned and worked with the standard features of MS Word, you’ll be ready for some of its more advanced functions. For this class, we’ve curated the most popular and useful advanced-level MS Word techniques and tools. Whether you need to enhance your document with multimedia; collaborate with other authors and editors; or even add fillable forms – this class will expand your word processing toolset.

                                                Graphics. A common misconception is that Word only offers cropping, resizing, and alignment of images. Did you know that you can also add shadows, reflections, 3-D bevels, and apply artistic effects like blurs and texture transforms? We’ll show you how to add some flair to your images and even create new graphics with “SmartArt” and the “Draw Shapes” tool.

                                                Collaboration. One of Word’s most powerful – and frequently used – features is tracking changes in a document and highlighting them for acceptance or rejection by other team members. We’ll show you how to set up, and participate in, this review process.

                                                References. MS Word offers a number of academic reference features like footnotes, endnotes, citations, cross-references and bibliographies. You’ll learn how to use these and also incorporate hyperlinks in your documents.

                                                Security and Forms. MS Word is a great tool for surveys, forms, or other types of documents used to collect data. We’ll show you how to create and distribute fillable forms you can email to others. You’ll also learn how to restrict edit permissions and digitally sign your document to prove its authenticity.

                                                Macros. If you find yourself performing the same sequence of steps again and again in your documents, you might consider using a “macro” to automate the process. We’ll teach you how to memorize a set of actions in MS Word and replay them again with a single keystroke.

                                                This class is for capable MS Word users who want to increase their proficiency by learning a curated set of advanced techniques including multi-user features, macros, forms, and academic references.

                                                Sooner or later every user of MS Word encounters a document produced by a power user. When that happens, you may find yourself bewildered by an array of features that are impossible to edit unless you know how they work: tables of contents; multiple headers and footers; linked text boxes; and more. This class will demystify, and enable you to start working with, those kinds of sophisticated documents.

                                                Tables and Charts. MS Word has a number of features borrowed from its software sibling, Excel. You can embed charts and mini-spreadsheets in your documents and keep the data within Word, or link to an external Excel data file. We’ll show you how to format tables in Word so they look clean and impactful; add formulas to them; and generate colorful charts from the data.

                                                Reusable Items. Whether you find yourself frequently reapplying formatting in different places in the same document or generally struggling to maintain a consistent look and feel, MS Word offers a couple killer tools to make your life easier. With custom styles and document themes you can ensure your document looks great throughout. If you’re starting a new document, templates are another feature to save you from reinventing the wheel.

We’ll also show you how to create and manage reusable chunks of content and placeholders that you can sprinkle through your document and have Word update automatically – no more tedious search and replace sessions!

                                                Document Flow. If you’ve used MS Publisher or Adobe InDesign, you’re familiar with the many options for controlling text overflow – but did you know MS Word has those features, too? Beyond simply letting text flow onto the next page, we’ll show you how to link text boxes to merge their content; how to divvy pages up into columns; and when to take use section breaks.

                                                Crowd Pleasers. In your journey toward becoming a master of MS Word, it won’t be long before you encounter the need to add certain advanced features to your documents. We have you covered! We’ll show you how to implement these popular features: cover pages, tables of contents, indexes, and mail (and email) merges.

                                                This class is for MS Word users that can already create edit, and format documents but who need next-level features like tables of contents, cover pages, charts, embedded spreadsheets, and mail merges.

                                                Need to get started with, or freshen up on, MS Word? As Microsoft’s flagship word processor has evolved over the years, it has changed so much that you can no longer just launch it and start typing up documents. Without understanding the right way to use MS Word, you are guaranteed to unnecessarily spend many hours reformatting and tweaking documents to get them to look right. Here’s what you need:

                                                The Basics. The first step in learning MS Word is getting around the interface. If you’ve been using an older version, you’ll probably be surprised by the new “Ribbon’ interface – but don’t worry, we’ll show you how to navigate it. Within short order you’ll be able to create, preview, print, and save documents.

                                                Formatting Text. Beyond changing fonts and colors, you’ll learn: how Word documents are structured into paragraphs with different formats; a tab stop system for aligning text; and borders and shading. We’ll cover two of the most useful text layouts: bullets and numbered lists. You will also learn the top keyboard shortcuts and how to instantly reapply formatting from one chunk of text to another.

                                                Images. Adding an image to a Word document is straightforward. But getting it to align properly with the text can be tricky: there are no less than 7 alignment options, not to mention features for cropping, resizing and styling. We’ll show you the most important configurations to ensure your images beautifully complement the text. 

                                                Tables. Like images, tables are objects with widths, heights, backgrounds, and borders. They also have numerous options for alignment, text wrapping, internal paragraph styles, and even controlling how they conform to page breaks. We’ll show you the most common table layout options.

                                                Document Prep. When you’ve finished writing your document, it’s time to get it ready for printing and distribution. To that end, we cover how to spell-check, set page margins, add headers/footers, and more.

                                                This class is for new MS Word users, as well as those who have some familiarity, but feel that they aren’t using it efficiently or “the right way.”
