ABOUT OTAN TRAINING: Workshop Descriptions

Workshop title Microsoft Office for Adult Education 
Workshop description

Office 365 is the same Office you already know and use every day. Since Office 365 is powered by the cloud, its applications and files can be accessed from virtually anywhere—PC, Mac and smart phones. In this workshop, you will learn how to use:

  1. Outlook Web App to upload and share files, and to manage mail, contacts, tasks, and calendars.
  2. Microsoft OneNote to take control of a variety of information. This easy to use and powerful note taking program lets you capture ideas and information in electronic form. Join us to learn how to create, edit, organize and enhance notes and also integrate them with other applications with Microsoft OneNote.
  3. Microsoft OneDrive to save and share your work files using so they are always with you. You will learn how to access and use the service; how to manage and recover files; how to upload, organize, copy, and delete files; how to view your photos in elegant galleries and slideshows.
