About this course

This course includes:

  • Two self-paced lessons and two practice sessions for hands-on experience. Practices require Word 2007.
  • A short test at the end of each lesson; tests are not scored.
  • A Quick Reference Card you can take away from the course.

Goals

After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Create a document outline from scratch.
  • Reorganize or restructure an existing outline.
  • Promote or demote outline entries so that they hold a greater or lesser level of prominence in your overall outline (for example, turn a top-level heading into a subheading).
  • Expand and collapse portions of the outline, and view an existing document in outline format.

How do you like to organize your ideas? If you're fond of outlining, that tried-and-true organizational aid, Word has tools that streamline the process. (And if you haven't tried outlining, you'll be amazed at how much time and trouble it can save you.)
