This course assumes basic familiarity with Word desktop for those new to Word Online. In this video, find out what is needed to follow along, and what the focus of the course will be.
- [Instructor] Here's what you need to know to follow along with me in this course. Firstly, you'll need to have a working internet connection to access Word Online. I'll be accessing Word Online from a Google Chrome browser on a Mac computer, but you can work with virtually any modern and up to date browser, like Internet Explorer 11 and higher, Firefox, Edge, and Safari and open them up on any other platform, like Windows, Linux, or even mobile devices, like tablets and smartphones. Just keep in mind, your screen might look a little different from mine if you're not working with Google Chrome on a Mac. The other thing you'll need is some type of Microsoft sign-in credentials. I'll be using an Office 365 business account in an organizational environment, but you can use other accounts, like personal Windows Live accounts, Outlook.com, and even old Hotmail accounts. We'll discuss this further in the next chapter. Lastly, there are no Exercise Files needed for this course as we'll be creating our own files as we move through the chapters and movies in this course. With that in mind, it will help to start with me at the very beginning as we go through the creation process if you plan to work with me doing what I do on your own device. Of course, you can also learn plenty by simply sitting back, relaxing, and watching.
