Microsoft training.



I have been asked to create some Microsoft office training courses. I have been given a lot of materials, am competent in Microsoft office myself and am an experienced trainer (but not in computer based training).

Can anyone reccommend brain friendly ways of facilitating this type of training, and/or any useful materials I could read about delivering IT learning?

Many thanks,

  1. It’s out there!!


    Hi Emma.

    Have been doing something similar myself recently. The first point is that Microsoft have already got loads of e-learning out there.

    For example

    So it might be enough, without knowing anything about your organisation or people, just to issue the relevant links.

    Secondly we have developed e-learning using a mixture of a program called Captivate and another called Lectora to develop introductory get you started type modules. These contain lots of downloadable .pdf’s to act as deskguides, links to stuff like the Microsoft site above etc. as well as short ‘films’ demonstrating the most common functions.

    And finally there is good old fashioned classroom type learning. I’ve always tried to do this in a more workshop-y style getting delegates to come along with genuine bits of work and a list of what they make use of the various Office products for. I’ve seen too many learning interventions which tried teaching people every single piece of functionality when all the delegates wanted was how to do an efficient mailmerge.
