Course Description

As a temporary measure to keep our learners safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, this course is being run remotely. Our educators have created an interactive, online course using video streaming software.


You may have used Word before but are you getting the most you can from the software? Get a solid foundation with Word that will help you see when and how to use Word features to automate and accelerate your ability to enter and format text and data. You’ll use these new skills every time you open Word! Do graphics frustrate you? Learn how to position, size, and enhance pictures and images, then choose the right text wrapping options so your picture stays where you place it.  Electronic course manual (pdf) included. 

Course Outline

What to expect from this online course:

  • You will have live classes via video live-stream, with a chat feature that your instructor will monitor and answer.
  • Students will be emailed the course materials and instructions on how to log-in online before the course start date.

To take this course online you will need a computer with a reliable internet connection (ideally hard wired in, or located close to your main router), plus a camera and microphone.

You may also find it easier to navigate this online course using two computer monitors, however a single monitor is still fine, you can set up your desktop view as a split screen feature.
