Course Description
In the past, you have extensively used Microsoft® Office Word 2003 to author and format content and graphics within documents. Word 2007 with its new features, user-friendly formatting, design, and authoring tools, improves the process of document creation and distribution. In this course, you will be introduced to the new and enhanced features available in Microsoft Office Word 2007.

Course Objective
You will explore the components of the results-oriented interface of the Word environment and customize the interface to suit your requirements. You will then use the tools available in Word 2007 to create documents that look professional and also visually appealing. You will then compare different versions of a document, in addition to finalizing and securing your document before it reaches its target audience.

This course is designed for experienced Word users who have worked with earlier versions of Microsoft® Office Word, ideally Microsoft® Office Word 2003, and who have upgraded to Microsoft Office Word 2007.


Students enrolling in this course should understand how to use some version of Word, preferably 2003, and have some familiarity with the Internet. This course covers the commonly used new features for a typical user. Due to the nature of this course and the minimal prerequisites, there are other more advanced new features that are not covered in depth.


Instructor led, group-paced, classroom-delivery learning model with structured hands-on activities.
