Excel Basics

Estimated Time: 2 Hours  |  Created By: Jason Cross

This is a very basic look at Microsoft Excel. The videos in this unit were designed around getting a teacher up to speed with the tool to use it to have an impact on subject areas such as math, language arts and social studies. Early on we cover the most elementary parts of how Microsoft Excel functions, and later on we build dynamic 3D spreadsheets that can calculate formulas and work with large amounts of information.

Objective: After completing this section the learner will have a beginner's understanding of the operation of Microsoft Excel 365. This course is designed to be a quick start guide that will give the learner the needed skills they need in order to use Excel with confidence.
