Microsoft Office Tutorials

By Shanghai Sam ·
I'm looking for, good, self-paced tutorial sites that students can use in the class. I am required to teach Office 2000 applications to students, twice a week for two hours, that have minimal or no computer skills and also to support staff.
I havestudents coming and going all the time, some might attend for two sessions others might attend for five. Also, in one session I might have someone wanting to learn Word others wanting to learn Excel etc. Their skills all vary.
Also, does anyone know of good step-by-step guides for Office 2000 applications, either on-line or ones that I can print to use in class. I am after all levels – from the very basic - for some one that has never used computers before, for over 50s and for others that have previously or are currently using computers.
Does anyone have others suggestions of ways I can tackle this training.

Hi,

If you are planning to teach your student on a class to use the the microsoft office this is just a suggestion at every end of the topic go help for example excel, access, word etc. you can get all of the answers to the question on HELP this is the best that the user may always be relying on in order that the teaching is much more interesting to them and they will not find it bored and to make more interesting let them used the computer a hands-on will always be the best teacher and practice some exercises will help them to be better so that after the end of the term they haven't just learn theoretical but as well as actual hands-on. Every meeting should have an exercises to practice on. Hope this help a bit this is just an opinion.

Cheers,

Element K has an excellent on-line (web-base) self-pace curiculum. I have facilitated these sessions. You may want to the Northwestern Hospital in Chicago training department.

As for as books are concerned...
The OLD Catapult (PBT) manuals areexcellent. I believe you may purchase them form IBM. Catapult were also the creators of the Step-By-Step editions for Microsoft. I don't neccesaily like the Element-K Books, especially for beginning users.

Try the MS step by step interactive, that is available with enterprise licenses.

I have tried various methods to train someone who is just starting out. Looking for something slower paced and user friendly I tried the Video Professor CDs. They have one for just about every business software in use. The student follows along withinstructions and video/audio on what to do. The student then tries the concept being taught. This in itself is not the answer but a good starting point for student to get a general idea of what the software can do.

There are two answers 1) sign onto the "Innovative Teachers" program at Microsoft.com. 2) Contract with a firm such as mine :) to write and produce tutorials. The cheapest of course is MS's Innovative Teacher program.

You may, if you get the chance, look into a product from Macromedia called RoboDemo.

You'd have to make the lessons yourself by subject and what not but on the long run - it may be the best for your needs.

Good luck.

Try the following:
http://www.fgcu.edu/support/ (On line tutorial-basics)
http://www.ddctraining.com/
Good selection of books with CDs and step-by-step instructions for various topics-main website is www.ddcpub.com, but any online book vendor such as
www.alibris.com
http://btobbrowse.barnesandnoble.com/
http://www.lowth.com/alist/author/-/DDC%20Publishing/1
http://www.addall.com/author/10350611-1
etc. carry the DDC product

You may also want to look into the new Macromedia Breeze (http://www.macromedia.com/software/breeze/)
to develop your own instructions.
