Through a partnership with Microsoft, Washington state libraries offer Microsoft’s online learning program to the public at no cost. The program now offers Learning Plans, aimed at helping you succeed in gaining important technical skills for work and life.
The Microsoft Office 2013 Essentials learning plan helps you discover what you need to know to successfully use Access, Excel, OneNote, Outlook, PowerPoint, Visio, and Word 2013. If you’ve recently upgraded to Windows 10, you can follow the courses in that learning plan to help you get the most out of Microsoft’s newest operating system. The basic computer skills learning plan includes a variety of topics, such as computer security and privacy, evaluating online resources, social networking, and productivity programs.
The Microsoft Imagine Academy also includes courses in web development, game design, software programming, cloud development, and many others. Whether you’re new to these online skills or tech savvy, you can find a course to increase your expertise.
