Microsoft Word 2016 Online Course

Hi, my name is Frans and I am your Regional Account Manager for ATTI Online Learning in South Africa. My role is to look at simple, and effective ways to develop your Word skills using our step-by-step online video tutorials.

If you are worried that you might be to old to learn about computers or fear that you might not be able to do this, then I want to reassure you that if you are serious about this we are commited to helping you learn.

We have trained thousands of people from all walks of life, every sector, every industry and every age group. We are very passionate about training and to me it is extremely satisfying to help a person grow and see them master a computer course like Microsoft Office.

Online courses require a much more self-motivated learning style than traditional classes and for some the first online learning experience can be a little intimidating, but once you get the hang of it, I promise you, you will do fine.

In this online course with the help of our video tutorials you will learn everything you need to know to be proficient in Microsoft Word 2016.

Since Microsoft Word 2007 this classic desktop application is used in almost every sector and industry for writing, editing and the production of letters with a strong focus on maximum productivity. From Microsoft Word 2010 to Microsoft Word 2013 we have not noticed any major changes in terms of the interface. Just a few new features and minor adjustments.

Microsoft Word 2016 has become the document writing and editing program that for the moment rules the market and it allows you to quickly produce professional documents using the rich authoring features.

Share, present, and work together on projects with built-in team collaboration tools and access your documents in the cloud whenever and wherever you need them. Your Word, always good, is now better than ever.

Microsoft Word Target Audience:

This course is intended for delegates who want to learn the fundamentals skills of working with Microsoft Word 2016, such as creating, editing, and formatting documents, inserting simple tables and creating lists, and employing a variety of techniques for improving the appearance and accuracy of document content.

The course then moves on to cover some of the more advanced features such as macros and building blocks, proofing, sharing and reviewing documents with others.

On successful completion of the course learners will receive an attendance certificate as well as a transcript on what was covered.

Learners can also assess their word skills with the Microsoft Office Specialist Certification at approved Certiport Testing Centres all over the country. The Microsoft Office Specialist Certification is optional and the fees for the excel certification might differ between the testing centers.

Microsoft Word Training Methodology

This word online course is modular and each module consists of short video tutorials between 3 and 10 minutes long. In certain cases, some word videos might exceed 10 minutes due to the nature of the lesson.

The facilitator will demonstrate on their screen step by step a feature or function during each word tutorial and if necessary, have created sample exercise files that you can download, so that you can follow along and see if you can apply and understand what was covered in the video lesson.
