What's New in Office 2013

Code: COMP1712

Course description

In this course, you'll learn how to use the exciting new features of Microsoft Office 2013, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Outlook, OneNote, and Publisher, using step-by-step, easy-to-follow instructions. With this latest version of the Microsoft Office, you'll be able to store and share your work "in the cloud" on Microsoft SkyDrive, a great, free online location that lets you access your files from any computer. You'll explore Word, where you'll get experience using the new Start screen, templates, and Ribbon commands. You'll master new features in graphics, movies, and tables as well as the new Reviewing features and Office apps (some great mini-programs you can add to Office), and learn how you can work with PDFs in Word. In Excel, you'll learn to speed up your work using the Quick Analysis tool, Flash Fill, and some great new chart features. You'll also get an orientation to PivotTables and explore a few new PivotTable tricks. In PowerPoint, you'll discover new ways to make your presentations look better than ever, including themes, graphics, shapes, colours, and animation. You'll also learn how to use the new Presenter view and commenting features, and how to present your slide show in an online meeting. In Access, you'll get acquainted with WebApps, which are Access databases you can put online and share with others who can use it with their Web browsers—they don't even need Access to use it! We'll also take a quick spin through the new features of the Office email program, Outlook. In addition, we'll explore often-overlooked but really valuable note-taking program, OneNote, as well as the easy-to-use page layout program, Publisher. And we'll top everything off with a bonus lesson on how to use some of the Office programs together, a skill known as integration. Before you know it, you'll be using each MS Office 2013 program with ease, and working more efficiently with cloud computing!
