Microsoft Word- A Two Part Class

This is a two part class. The first class will be on Wed., March 21. We will begin with the basic operations of Microsoft Word. You will have an opportunity to study the version of Microsoft Word that is on your computer. Once we have worked our way through the attached tutorials, we will take a survey to see what we would like to focus on for out next class.

Our suggestion is that you look below and find the version of word that is on your own computer and open it up. Once you are there, you will find an index of content areas, but...there is also a tab at the top that has the word "Extras" as a title. If you click on that tab, you will be taken to another page with articles and then a quiz. Now, if you are short on time and you have some familiarity with Word, take the quiz. It will point out the areas you are unclear on and offer links that will take you directly to that topic. Voila- you have a personally tailored tutorial.
