Doug Thomas is in the part of the Office team that writes help content for Office on the Office.com website, and in the help pages of the software. And he's recently branched out to producing mini webinars to help you discover new parts of the Office suite. They're run every week, but unfortunately for Australia, they're run in the middle of the night
But wait, there's good news – he records all the webinars, and makes the recordings available online. And because they are only 15 minutes long, they make great learning snacks (and Doug's a very natural host and demonstrator, so they are very watchable).
You can access all of the recordings on this Office webinars page, and some of my recommendations are:
- Stuff for students and teachers
Including OneNote, new free tools for teachers and students, and the intriguingly titled 'Four things students say teachers must stop doing with PowerPoint'
- Things you'll never have to say again with Office
A quick run through the features of the Office Preview, which shows off what's coming in the new Office
- Excel 2013: New powerful tools
Doug demonstrates some of the very powerful new ways of visualising your data, information and spreadsheets in Excel 2013, which will be here really soon…
- Customer's Choice: Advanced uses for OneNote
In this webinar Doug took a live vote, and then went diving into the most popular voting choice from 6 choices for the rest of the webinar.
You can find all of Doug's videos on the Office Webinars channel on YouTube
