If you have just acquired a new PC or plan to in the coming months, this course introducing Microsoft Windows 8/7 is for you. The principles and concepts we will cover apply to Windows 8 and Windows 7. At work or at home, when everyday PC users are confronted with new versions of existing software, our natural inclination is to test whether we can still do what we used to do – the old way. Learn the best of both worlds: find your favourite old features as well as the new ones! Discover the Windows 8 benefits and features such as the new user interface, instant search and sync centre, and new Office 2013/2010 features, including the ribbon, quick access toolbar, key tips, and OneDrive.
Duration: 6 hours (Morning and afternoon session on the same day)
Windows 8 / 7
Recommended: Prior experience with any version of Windows and Microsoft Office would be an asset. Access to the Internet to review post-course resources is highly recommended.
Lab Equipment and Devices
The sessions are conducted in a computer lab and you will have a lab computer for you to use.
You are welcome to bring your own computer to the lab sessions if you prefer to use that. Wireless access is available in the lab.
At times you will be doing a fair bit of typing and you will want to have a large enough screen and separate physical keyboard so that you can view content and type at the same time.
Lab exercises are based on using the lab computers.
If it appears that you are having challenges with your own device, we will ask you to use the lab computer.
