Microsoft Word may seem like a simple word processor, but it's a very deep program with hundreds of features that make word processing quick and easy. But if you don't know how to use those features, you're wasting time whenever you sit down to type out a document. And that's time you'll never get back ... a few hours of Word education now can save endless hours down the road.
This program is designed to jumpstart your work with Word. It is perfect for companies looking to quickly educate new employees, students that need to put the finished gloss on term papers, or individuals that want to find new and quicker ways to use this incredibly powerful word processing program.
You'll learn important tips and tricks for formatting, editing, and proofing documents, working with tabs and rulers, using bullet and numbered lists, laying out multiple column text, and also printing and faxing documents from right inside Microsoft Word itself. For a full list of what this program offers, check out the table of contents below.
At first this course looked kind of dull but then I found myself sitting thru almost the entire course in one sitting. I have learned so many new tricks with Word because of this course.

As a user of Word for many years, I found this course to be an excellent review of the many fundamentals of this program- a great way to get back to the basics. There were many tips, which somehow I had not learned about in the past. I especially appreciated the presentation of Mac oriented menus and other command options. I would have liked coverage related to pictures, graphics, drawing, page numbering and date options, but think that that similar items may be more appropriately covered in a future more advanced course.

Thank goodness for your videos - I used other word processor programs over the years and had to learn this one. Your video saved me much time looking about for the functions I needed immediately, and to get up to speed a.s.a.p. I am pleased that your company fills in "The learning gap" and at an affordable price as well.

Pretty good. Learned some tips I wasn't aware of. Well thought out and good presentation.
Overall though... not advanced enough.
Too much simple information such as "how to cut and paste" or how to select a word using the cursor. I find myself skipping entire sections because it's stuff you learn as a beginner when you first got a computer.
Video was very old... covered MSWord 2004 when I'm using Office 2008.

I just started viewing my word 101 course and so far it is definitely the best online course that I have used.

Very well made tutorial! I was quite satisfied with it. From all of the tutorials by mac pro video I like the most presented by Martin Sitter.
In general, you guys do a really good job!
Best of luck

The only visual tutorial for Mac-word I could find.
Clear explanation and visualisation.
Good tempo to understand (even for Dutch speaking people).
We miss some useful issues e.g.: inserting pictures and charts, working with heathers and footers, working with index and tables.
Some interactivity (exercises) would be nice and helpful.

It was nowhere clear what version of word this is and I actually wanted the ltest version (surprise)
