Subjects

Business

Microsoft Publisher,

Microsoft Publisher

I've been using desktop publishing applications since the days of PageMaker. When teaching outside the classroom I like to teach MS Publisher within the context of a goal to create and refine a document project that the client needs. This is an excellent example of the hands-on approach (the only way to properly teach software, in my opinion).
QuickBooks,

QuickBooks

I've been teaching QB since v.4. I incorporate business accounting practices and standards as we walk through the material, from setting up charts of accounts, working receipts and payables, tracking inventory, using employee time accounting and pay. There are many versions of QB for use by non-profits, retail points of sale, construction, and manufacturing. While not familiar with these different versions, I am well-versed in the standard QB used by small businesses.
Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Word

Computer

DOS,

DOS

I've used MS-DOS, PC-DOS and DesqView since the early 80s. I taught intro and batch file topics during that time. I set up two PCBoard BBS six-line systems with DesqView. I still find myself occasionally using DOS logic in a variety of applications.
Microsoft Access,

Microsoft Access

I've been teaching Access since v.95. Maybe the most challenging in the Microsoft Office suite, the learning curve is best approached (in my opinion) from the aspect of introducing the database concept, then using a field/table structure to expand to queries, forms and reports. The intermediate and advanced training expands on each of these.
Microsoft Outlook,

Microsoft Outlook

I've been using and teaching Outlook since v.98, both for individual clients working with an ISP connection to businesses working via Exchange. I'm well versed on the limitations as well as those tools seldom used. I am adequately competent in modifying forms. Outlook has been my e-mail and calendaring tool of choice for almost 20 years!
Microsoft Project,

Microsoft Project

I've been teaching Project since v.4 and actively using the product since 2004 in a variety of projects from small to medium. I include a heavy dose of project management principles and standards to illustrate the application of the many tools and encourage my students to examine the PMP professional certification.

Microsoft Windows,

Microsoft Windows

I transitioned an office with some 20 computers from MS DOS 6.2 to Windows 3.1 in the late 80's and haven't looked back since. Each version bring more tools and flexibility but it remains a platform for software applications. The navigation methods may vary but so many other aspects remain the same. I like to start the training with an illustration of how the hardware and software interact and then build from there.
