Introduction to Microsoft Word

The purpose of this course is to enable the students to perform the most essential word processing functions quickly and easily, to ensure immediate productivity, and to set up a word processing project most effectively.

CIC has isolated the "Big Ten" functions of word processing—based on experience with hundreds of features in scores of word processors--those ten most important skills someone must know in order to complete a word processing task, from start-up through editing to printing.
