Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week introduced its "Learning Microsoft Outlook 2013 Tutorial," a course designed to optimize Outlook's capabilities for both beginning and experienced users the popular email program.
Since its first release in the mid 1990s, Microsoft Outlook has been the standard utility for sending and receiving email in Windows.
Updated versions, however, have increasingly tooled the program toward a niche as a one-stop shop for personal organization and communication. The 2013 version brings even more enhancements geared toward personal information management, including greater integration with cloud services and with other programs in the Office Suite.
Infinite Skills' Learning Microsoft Outlook 2013 Video Training explores key new features as it teaches the program from an entirely different perspective, equipping users with a broad understanding of the program, and allowing them to maximize Outlook's benefits for streamlining personal organization and communication.
Course author Erin Olsen, a Microsoft Certified Instructor, holds a master's degree in education with emphasis on instructional design and technology. She has been a computer trainer since 1994, starting with Windows 3.1. Her training style is influenced by her real-world experience as an entrepreneur, and her instruction style is oriented toward the practical needs of everyday users.
Olsen's near two-decades of experience equip her with the insight and expertise necessary to provide clear and insightful explanations of Microsoft Outlook's powerful capabilities for personal management.
"I realize that not everybody needs the same training experience," she says, "and so I try to create both unique programs and new ways of delivering the content so that it meets the needs of every person who needs my training."
After a quick tour of email basics, including working with attachments, Olsen takes email to the next level, explaining in detail how to customize emails with stationary and themes, text styles, images, and more. Important capabilities such as using using messages as votes, delaying message delivery, and auto-reply options, are also covered here before a separate chapter explains how to manage messages using rules, folders, and other sorting features.
Olsen then explores Outlook's calendar, exploring views, events, reminders, and meeting organization features, before demonstrating the improved People Hub which integrates contact information with social networking sites.
"My goal," Olsen adds, "is to help you learn the "why," not just the "how," so you truly understand how this program works. if you understand why things are actually happening, you'll be able to respond to the specific situations you encounter."
