Word Tips

I know basic features of Word but would like learn more advanced features without having to sit through a lot of training. What do you recommend?

UNMC ITS recommends their short mini-sessions which are often available, as well as videos, demos and tutorials that Microsoft offers free of charge. Click here to see a variety of excellent short videos on:  opening Word really fast, using office.com templates, convert a list into a table, make bulleted list more interesting, cropping pictures to shapes, zooming with your mouse, and more! All videos are three minutes or less.

The next ITS Word mini-session is Tuesday 11/13 from 10-11:30 and will feature Word Graphics features, including working with photos, text boxes, diagrams and more. Feel free to bring your own documents to “dress up.” Learn about Mail Merge on December 5 from 10-11:30 a.m. to create letters, labels or envelopes from your mailing lists in Excel or Access. We will also have “drop in help” sessions following those sessions from 11:30-12:30 to for individual help with projects (Word or other applications). These sessions will be held in 8011 Wittson and require registration at http://www.unmc.edu/its/training.htm (you don’t need to register for drop in sessions). If you have requests for additional Word training, contact klaursen@unmc.edu
