Microsoft Office 365: Web Apps and Collaboration for Office 2013
This course is an introduction to the Microsoft Office 365 for Office 2013 in a cloud-based environment. Using Office 365, users can easily communicate with each other through Microsoft Outlook mail and Skype for Business instant messaging and online meetings. Additionally, the Microsoft SharePoint Team Site provides a central location for accessing and modifying shared documents. The Office Web Apps enable users to perform basic tasks, such as opening, editing, printing, and saving documents without requiring an installation of the full desktop version of Microsoft Office 2013 on the local computer.
This course is intended for business users and knowledge workers in a variety of roles and fields who have competence in a desktop-based installation of the Microsoft Office 2010 or 2013 edition of the Microsoft Office productivity suite, and who are now extending Microsoft Office to a collaborative cloud-based Office 365 environment.
To ensure your success, you will need competence in at least one of the primary applications in the 2010 or 2013 edition of the Microsoft Office suite (Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, and/or Microsoft Excel), and also competence in using the locally installed version of Microsoft Outlook 2010 or 2013 for email and calendaring. To meet this prerequisite, you can take any one or more of the following Logical Operations courses:
- Using Microsoft Windows 8 or Microsoft Windows 8 Transition from Windows 7
- Microsoft Office Word 2013: Part 1
- Microsoft Office Excel 2013: Part 1
