Microsoft Office Word Essentials  

Overview

Welcome to the first part of our Microsoft Office Word 2016 training program. Microsoft Word is the Office suite’s flagship productivity software. This version of Word incorporates many new features and connectivity options in order to make collaboration and production as easy as possible.

By the end of this course, students should be comfortable with creating a new document, making it look professional and presentable, and saving their document. Students will also become familiar with using and customizing the Microsoft Word interface.

This course is intended to help all novice computer users get up to speed with Word quickly. We will cover different features of the interface, show users how to create a basic document, and introduce users to Word’s most important tools.

Prerequisites

This course assumes that the user understands the basics of using a Windows-based computer. Students should be comfortable using the keyboard, mouse, and Start menu. Understanding and experience with printing and using a web browser is an asset, but not required. No previous experience with other versions of Microsoft Word is necessary.
