Week 1

Learn shortcuts in Word that can help you create documents faster and more accurately than ever before. Not only will these shortcuts save you time, but they'll help you create letters and reports more easily than you might have thought possible. Then, you'll learn a fast and easy way to format chunks of text quickly and consistently using something called styles. By the end of this lesson, you'll be able to make any document look presentable with just the click of your mouse.

Week 2

Learn to use templates which store the formatting of a document so you can easily apply it to another document. Then, learn how to add your own digital photographs to a document. In addition to adding your own photos, you can also add clip art from Word's massive library of free graphics. And you'll find out how to resize, rotate, and style your pictures, as well as wrap your document text around them.

Week 3

Discover how to add a variety of informational graphics, including charts, graphs, and WordArt, which allows you to display text as a graphic image. Not only will you learn how to add these graphics, but you'll also find out how to edit them when your data changes. Then, learn how to divide a large document into parts called sections. We'll also spend some time inserting footnotes and endnotes in a document.

Week 4

In this lesson, you'll see how to create tables of all different sizes right in a Word document! We'll cover how to modify tables, too. Then, you'll see how you can define the dimensions of the paper you're using, so Word will print everything correctly. You'll also learn how to print names and addresses directly on envelopes of any size.

Week 5

Find out how text boxes are the key to simple desktop publishing, and you'll see how other elements come into play in customized documents. Along the way, we'll look at business cards and greeting cards to get a feel for how desktop publishing works. Then, discover the magic of linked text boxes that give you the power to move your text anywhere you want on the page and keep it flowing. You'll see how to create, position, resize, and group text boxes so that you have total control over your text.

Week 6

In this lesson, you'll learn how to store long lists of names and addresses that you can use over and over again in a form letter. Just create a document once, leave blanks for inserting information such as names and addresses, and let Word personalize each letter for you. Finally, you'll see how you can use Styles to make creating a table of contents a snap, and we'll explore how to tag index terms so that Word knows what page they're on, even if they move later.
