Course Description

Microsoft Word 2019 is the latest version of the most popular word processing application on the market developed by Microsoft Corporation. You can't escape the number of businesses and individuals that use Microsoft Word on a daily basis. Regardless of your own word processing program preference, you're bound to do business or communicate with someone who uses MS Word exclusively. For this reason, you need to know what it can do and how to do it. This course will show you the many ways that you can integrate Microsoft Word 2019 into your everyday life.

In this course, you're going to learn how to...

  • Navigate the new MS Word interface
  • Create new documents and open existing documents
  • Use templates
  • Edit and format text, paragraphs, and whole documents
  • Use Microsoft Word for desktop publishing
  • Create brochures, flyers, and even business cards
  • Insert headers, footers, images, graphics, and video
  • Use mail merge
  • Create a table of contents
  • Compare, merge and protect documents
  • Proof, print, collaborate, and track changes in Word documents
  • Create even more impressive tables than ever before using new formatting tools
  • And much more! 

We'll start with an introduction to the core features of MS Word, but then quickly move on to the way Microsoft Word handles formatting and styles so that you can customize the look and feel of any Word document. We then move to more complex features such as creating tables, desktop publishing and mail merge.

We'll also review how you can use MS Word to create and manage long technical documents that may require headers and footers. We also go over unique MS Word methods for proofing and editing. For example, should you need to work with a third-party editor, we will show you ways to add comments and track changes as you pass documents from person-to-person.

Finally, we cover more complex topics such as recording macros and working with Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). Our course takes you from the basic introduction to the more complex tools of Word so that you can master the application whether for business or personal use.
With clear and concise step-by-step directions, beautifully illustrated lessons with screenshots, and HD Video tutorials, this Word 2019 online course will teach you everything you need to know to become a Microsoft Word power user.
Note: You do not need access to MS Word software in order to successfully complete this course, although it is strongly recommended in order to follow along with the course examples.
