Come and join us for coffee and a hands-on comfortably paced session of exploring the basic use of the computers, electronic mail, and programs that you will want to become familiar with as you prepare to use the new Microsoft Office 365 that is being rolled out by LACOE this year.
This class is designed for those of you who have been busy and have not had the opportunity to “sit down” and focus on the effective use of technology and digital tools in the workplace. This class is open to all LACOE Employees.
The sessions are designed so that in addition to the presenter, there is a trainer available to assist participants as questions arise during the presentation in an effort to create a productive and low stress environment.
The last hour of each session will be reserved for “hands on project time.” This time is designated for participants to explore what was covered in the workshop and complete an assigned task with guidance providing an opportunity to apply new learning and putting recently adopted skills to work.
Both morning and afternoon sessions are available in our Mac Lab (288) and our PC Lab (281), please make sure you choose the time and lab containing the platform that you wish to be trained on.
