Transitioning to Microsoft Windows 8 and Office 2013

This Microsoft Windows 8 and Office 2013 training takes into account that mobile devices are widely used. As a result, many business professionals find themselves performing a greater number of work-related tasks, from a variety of devices, regularly. You may find yourself included in this group of multiple-device users, although you might still perform a significant amount of your work from a desktop or a laptop computer. Being able to access your work from nearly anywhere is a matter of convenience and efficiency, but it also has its drawbacks. Some devices simply don't have the ability to run many of the applications you use in an office setting. You have likely experienced the frustration of trying to review a document from a mobile device only to encounter an error message.

With the release of Windows 8 and Office 2013, Microsoft has made strides in bridging the gap between your laptop or desktop PC, and a variety of mobile devices. This course is designed for students who wish to make a switch from using a PC running on the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system with foundational knowledge and skills in Office 2007 or 2010 to using a PC running on the Microsoft Windows 8 operating system with Office 2013 in a business or work-related environment.
