Microsoft Excel Online

Excel Online does for spreadsheets what Word Online does for documents – give you an easy way to create and modify them. Templates include lists, money management, budgeting, loan calculator, credit card payoff calculator, household organizer, daily schedule, travel expense tracker, sales tracker, trip planner… and more. In this course we will learn about the various tabs and their associated ribbons. We will learn how to input and edit data in cells, how to easily use formulas to do the math work for you and how to format dates, numbers and text. We will also cover cell references.

Microsoft Excel Online is free!

Also see the Microsoft Office Online tab (page) on this website.

This 3-session class starts Wednesday June 7th at 10:15 am. See the Schedule tab for the full schedule.

Microsoft Word Online

Word Online from Microsoft is totally free (though the class is not) and runs in a browser. It allows you to create documents – letters, resumes, project task lists, reports, calendars, trip planners, event flyers, meeting minutes… and more. There are numerous templates that are already created and available for your use that you can modify with your content. In this course we will learn about the various tabs and their associated ribbons. We will also review different methods of text formatting and cutting, copying and pasting blocks of text, using both menus and the most common keyboard shortcut keys.

Also see the Microsoft Office Online tab on this website.

This 3-session class starts Wednesday, May 31st. See the Schedule tab for all dates and times.

Like all Oasis courses, it is being taught at Castle Shannon Library. Maximum of six students.

Spring 2017 Schedule Now Available

Please see the schedule page for the list of courses and dates for the Spring 2017 term.

This term we are introducing or reintroducing some courses. The top section of the schedule page contains the details.

Have some friends that could benefit from some of these classes? Encourage them to sign up for some classes. It’s always more fun to take a class with someone you know so drag that Luddite friend of yours out of the house to join you. And remember — we do not teach one-on-one classes so the best way to ensure that a class you signed up for will not be cancelled is to encourage a friend to sign up and take the class with you.

Our opening lineup, Intro to Computers with Windows 7 (taught twice this term), Email using Gmail and Windows 10, are a great way for some seniors new to computers to get started and are an excellent primer. Word Online and Excel Online give you FREE online versions of the popular, but expensive, Microsoft Office programs. Learn how these work and integrate with the cloud. Also, what you learn is directly transferable to MS Office.

We are bringing back Facebook this term. We have slimmed this class down from 6 days to 5.

If you’ve recently got a new laptop with Windows 10 or you’ve upgraded an older computer to Windows 10, check out the Windows 10 class.

Digital Photography is back and will be taught by Mike Weis. This class will be taught on the library computers but using your camera, tablets and phones to export pictures to the computers.

Again this term is the ever-popular iPad class, but now with iPhone as well. Received a new or hand-me-down iPad/iPhone? Want to get more out of your iPad/iPhone than you’re using it for now? Join this class to learn more. This is also a great refresher class. This class will be on iOS 10 so you can benefit even if you’re taken the class before. We have slimmed this class down from 10 days to 9.

Remember than any class marked BYOD mean Bring Your Own Device, be it a laptop or iPad. BYOD classes are typically taught in the large room downstairs – park in the lower lot. All other classes use the Castle Shannon Library computers and are taught upstairs – park alongside the library.

Also remember, at the bottom of every page is a place for you to enter your email address to “Follow” this blog. That means that when I update a page or add a new post (typically for an upcoming class) you will be notified via email.

We are giving Facebook, Intro to the Internet and Beginners Guide to the Cloud a break this term but can add any of them at the end if the demand is there.

Learn the difference between Word Online (free), Office 365 (subscription-based) and purchasing Office. The files (Word documents) are all completely compatible and the program operation is about 90% compatible upward so if your needs change you can take your Word Online skills and apply them to Office 365 and/or the desktop installed version.

With Word Online there is nothing to buy and no software to download. By default your documents are stored in your own personal cloud drive – OneDrive, and are available to you anywhere you go where there is a computer, laptop, tablet or phone with a browser. There are even free apps for tablets and phones.
