Welcome to VTC's course on Microsoft Word 2013. I'm your instructor Melanie Hedgespeth. Word 2013 is here with an updated sleeker look and faster loading time. The new Office program is part of the Cloud. This allows you to utilize remote access anywhere, anytime. The new version of Word works well on our typical keyboard, mouse setup. But now it works really well with touch devices like your tablet. Now we all create documents for many reasons and with the way Microsoft Word has progressed you can do so with the most efficient and effective word processing software available. Word now has a better reading mode. I can read without things like toolbars and scrollbars in my way. There's no distractions, it's clean and simple so I can just and read and digest the content. Word also has a new digital bookmark. It will remember the last place you visited on your document. So you can work on a file, take a break and when you open it again even if you're on a different computer, it will show you where you left off. Word also simplified collaboration. You're now going to have a backstage where you can share your documents easily with people. You can even share your documents with people who don't have Microsoft Word. You also have new alignment guides, those green lines are alignment guides. You can align your items like photos and charts with the text very easily. The positioning is in real time now so you can get it right the first time you move that object. Word also has PDF Editing and Reflow. Open your PDF directly in Word and edit it. No need for a separate program to get those PDFs corrected. Word also now has Office apps. Some are free, some you purchase. These apps help us become more productive, things like the dictionary. There's also many other apps that we'll take a look at later on. I can set things in Office like my own custom background if I want to. I can even add connected services. Microsoft understands that social media is really big now so I can connect Facebook LinkedIn, Flickr, all types of options there to make a connection into Word. I can also make connections really easily with online pictures and online video. When I want to insert a picture I used to have to go outside of Word, go find that, copy it and bring it in here. Now I can go directly online from within Word, get the picture and insert it. Now these are just a few of the remarkable elements of Word 2013. Join me for this VTC course and continue to learn more about this great program.
