We will show you how to download the Zoom app and explore its basic features.  Also, we will create a “Zoom meeting” so you can practice and gain confidence in using it. Some helpful resources will be provided.  Bring your laptop, tablet, or phone (iOS or Android) to this class, but if you cannot, we will provide a device for you to use.

Organizations the world over rely on information to make sound decisions regarding all manner of affairs. But with the amount of available data growing daily, the ability to make sense of all of that data is becoming more and more challenging. Fortunately, this is where the power of Microsoft® Office Excel® 2016 can help. Excel can help you organize, calculate, analyze, revise, update, and present your data in ways that will help the decision makers in your organization steer you in the right direction. It will also make these tasks much easier for you to accomplish, and in much less time, than if you used traditional pen-and-paper methods or nonspecialized software. This course aims to provide you with a foundation for Excel knowledge and skills, which you can build upon to eventually become an expert in data manipulation.
