lynda.com Releases Microsoft Office 2013 Training

Online learning company lynda.com has released the first of several Microsoft Office training courses it will offer this year, coinciding with the Microsoft release of Office 2013 and Office 365.

Courses covering popular Microsoft programs like Excel, Word and Outlook have been some of the most requested by lynda.com members. The company offers more than 175 Microsoft courses, providing training for the widely used Office applications and Windows 8, as well as more advanced Microsoft applications for developers. It also offers training on the new subscription model Microsoft is introducing with its release of Office 365, covered in the course Up and Running with Office Web Apps taught by Curt Frye.

Whether using the subscription model with Office 365, or the traditional suite of products with Office 2013, the new lynda.com courses cover instruction for both. Here are the first courses timed with the latest release of Office:

  • Office 2013 New Features: David Rivers introduces what's new in Office 2013, including a look at cloud integration, Skype collaboration and ribbon customization. The course also takes a look at individual application enhancements in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Publisher, OneNote and Outlook.
  • Excel 2013 Essential Training: Dennis Taylor teaches Excel 2013 basics, covering formulas, worksheets, charts, PivotTables, macros and formatting. It includes tips to build charts and protect data in shared spreadsheets.
  • Word 2013 Essential Training: David Rivers teaches the basics of working with documents in Word 2013, from creating and editing documents to formatting text. The course explains new functionality to edit PDF documents and insert online videos.
  • SharePoint Foundation 2013 Essential Training: Gini Courter shows the basics of getting started using SharePoint Foundation 2013 to create a SharePoint site for business collaboration and real-time document sharing.
