Training Options for UM Extension
by Charlie Baerwald

The deployment of new computers with Microsoft Windows Vista and Office 2007 left computer users wondering how to accomplish second-nature tasks with Windows XP and Office 2003.

Though there is no training offered specifically by ETCS, there are good online training options available for students, faculty, and staff of the University of Missouri to help familiarize them with the new system.

For the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system, there’s a walkthrough of features on the computer itself - click Start » Help and Support. There you can check out Windows Basics, What’s New, and other categories.

There’s more on the Microsoft Windows Help and How-to web site

For Office 2007, there are free self-paced training courses on the Microsoft web site:

The University of Missouri also has a few online resources specific to Office 2007:  

General training options through the MU Campus  http://doit.missouri.edu/training/  include info on free classroom courses in Columbia for UM students, faculty, and staff.
