Sometimes it feels as if computers can do anything — except tell you how to use them. And there’s so much to learn: new programs, new versions of programs, and new uses for programs that people expect you to know already.
Many times, you’re on your own. Would it help if somebody explained? At your desk? Slowly, with pictures? And with exercises you could do at your own speed? For free?

There are more than 150 courses at Office Online, but these are good ones to start with if you’re starting from scratch. We've also included demos in these listings.
