In the 2016 edition of Microsoft Office, Word brings us improved sharing and collaboration tools, and a cool way to transform your "ink" equations to text. Here are 3 features you can look forward to in Word 2016:
1. Easy Sharing ~ Now, direct from your ribbon, you can upload your document to OneDrive or SharePoint, assign permissions, and email to collaborators.
To save you even more time, the sharing task pane includes a direct link to your global address book -- just point and click on the names of those you wish to share with.
2. Real Time Co-Authoring ~ Documents stored and shared on OneDrive or SharePoint can now be accessed and edited simultaneously by all parties (with the appropriate permissions.) When working together, you can see exactly where others are working within the same document, and watch their edits appear as they happen.
3. "Ink" Equations ~ Instead of searching through a multitude of symbols, functions, operators, etc. to enter your complex equations, users with a touch pad or touch device (smartphone or tablet) can now hand write equations using their finger of stylus and Word will convert them to text.
If you've got a steady hand with a mouse, you may use that as well -- though it can be trickier than it looks (see my sample below!)

The majority of my computer training focused on Publisher. I have received positive comments and feedback from several of my colleagues on the changes between my first attempt and current expertise creating the monthly internal newsletter for my department. They enjoy the updated format and the way in which the information is presented.
Deborah assisted me through a learning curve, as I had not previously had any exposure to this program prior to joining Rama. She also provided me with a refresher course on PowerPoint and Excel. Deborah is a patient teacher and tailored the training to suit my job requirements.
