Getting Started With Word 2010 

Microsoft Office 2010 carries on the "new tradition" of Office 2007, with its easier-to-use screen design that features tabs instead of menus and toolbars. In this lesson, you'll get familiar with Word 2010, which can act as a gateway to all of the other Office programs. And in the process, you'll create a simple but great-looking flier.

Formatting a Word Document

No matter what kind of documents you create in Word, making them attractive will always help to get your message across.

Organize Your Data With Excel Tables

If you ever need to manage lists of data, whether names and addresses or inventory lists, this is the lesson for you! Excel now calls lists tables. Today, you'll learn to create and modify tables using new Excel 2010 and 2007 features, including calculated columns. You'll locate and sort data and then find out how to filter it to display only the information you need. Finally, you'll analyze and filter data using PivotTables and slicers. Who knew that analyzing a list of data could be so rich with possibilities?

Get to Know PowerPoint Essentials

If you're looking forward to using PowerPoint to persuade people, this lesson is the place to start. We'll begin with a quick tour of the new PowerPoint interface. Then, we'll create a text slide while we get oriented to the screen layout. Next, we'll apply slide layouts and use them to insert and modify graphics. It won't be long before you're using PowerPoint like a pro!

Formatting Presentation Text, Graphics, and Video

In this lesson, we'll learn some of the really neat ways to format text and graphics in PowerPoint. We'll add custom fills, borders, and special effects.

Meet Access 2010

The final Microsoft Office program we'll examine is Access 2010. You'll explore Access tabs by creating a database and entering a little data.
