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.
