Course Overview

This course is an introduction to the online version of Microsoft Outlook. Students will learn how to navigate the application’s interface and the basics of managing email communications, contact information, and personal or company schedules.

Course Objectives

The goal of this course is to help students become more organized and comfortable in working with their personal information. Students will learn how to compose, reply to, forward, store, and delete emails; how to correspond efficiently with friends and colleagues; and how to keep track of their meetings, appointments, and to-do lists. By the end of this course, you will be able to use Outlook online for many daily tasks and will be on your way to learning more advanced features.

Who Should Attend?

This course is designed with beginners in mind. It is aimed toward those new to either Microsoft Windows applications or to using email clients. Even more experienced students may find something new with a guided tour through Outlook, however, so this course is recommended to anyone hoping to learn more about managing emails and personal information or communicating within their organization.
