Microsoft Office for Mac for Creative Pros Online Course


Using Microsoft Office for Mac can be daunting — but Excel algorithms and interactive PowerPoint presentations don’t have to seem like foreign languages. Join Alicia Katz Pollock for an introduction to everything creative professionals need to know to take advantage of Microsoft Office for Mac’s full potential to manage every creative project.


In this comprehensive 40-video course, Alicia will teach you the fundamentals of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook to organize, communicate, brainstorm, create, and present a variety of different creative projects. You’ll learn everything in Word from opening and formatting simple documents to creating complex manuscripts to using its desktop publishing functions to make flyers, advertising materials, and more. You’ll learn how to create a budget in Excel. You’ll use PowerPoint to create a dynamic presentation to promote your latest project. And, all along the way, Alicia will share tips and tricks for making Office run more intuitively, quickly, and efficiently, giving you the time you need to focus on your creative pursuits.
