Course Objectives

Welcome to Seven Institute’s course for Microsoft Office Word, Microsoft’s flagship productivity software. This new version of Word incorporates many new features and connectivity options in efforts to make collaboration and production as easy as possible.

This Introduction level is intended to help all novice computer users get up to speed quickly. This course will also help more experienced users who have little to no experience with Word and the ribbon interface.

In general, the course is geared towards the novice computer user. This course will cover different features of the interface, give a brief overview of all the tabs in the ribbon, show users how to print, and cover the basics of text formatting. By the end of this course, users should be comfortable with creating a new document, making it look professional and presentable, and saving and printing their document.

Who Should Attend

This course assumes the user understands the bare basics of using a Windows-based computer. Students should be comfortable using the keyboard, mouse, and Start menu. Knowledge of and experience with printing and using a Web browser is an asset, but not required.
