Yawn-proof software training

Upcoming Video Blogs

We decided to do something a little different this year, though we're a little behind schedule which is all down to me as I'm in charge, apparently!

This year we are creating some "introductory" videos beginning with Excel 2013.  I have wanted to create video libraries for every piece of software we offer training for, for years, but this is such a huge endeavour that I have been completely overwhelmed and gotten stuck in a continuous loop of enthusiasm and dread!  I'm sure many of my entrepreneurial colleagues can empathize.

We finally sat down and did a cost-benefit analysis with a little help from a colleague of mine (I know, why didn't I do this in the first place) and decided that it wasn't going to give me the return on investment we need, so we decided to take a different approach and take bite size chunks and present them to you via our blogs.

When it comes to classrrom training we often hear the lament "Oh, I'm just here because my boss wants us all to take this course. I don't need to take an introductory course. I already use ..... and know it pretty well".  Nine times out of ten, within the first 10 minutes of the course we also hear exclamations like "I didn't know that" from this same person which makes our day!

If you really are one of those people who is truly knowledgeable about Excel or any of the other software we'll be presenting, we understand that you'll bypass these video blogs, but if you're self-taught or open to having it confirmed that you know your stuff, I hope you'll find these blogs useful.

We encourage your feedback on this and and all of our blogs.

    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.
