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.
