Microsoft Office 365 Training Courses

Microsoft Office 365, also known as Microsoft 365 or Office 365, includes an online version of the standard Microsoft Office software.

Delivered to users through the internet, Office 365 comes with the applications you’re familiar with, like Word, PowerPoint, and Excel.

Depending on your specific Office 365 plan, you can have the traditional programs available to download to your computer or you can use an online version which is known as Office Online apps.

These apps are designed to give you access anywhere you have internet access, with a familiar user interface for creating and collaborate using the Office applications you already know.

Office 365 allows you to move seamlessly from Office Online to the full-featured desktop apps—without leaving your document.

Microsoft Office 365 courses from Keystroke Learning have the potential to take you from a beginner to an advanced level user with a minimum of fuss.

Beginners will be able to focus on building foundational skills and advanced users can explore some of the more technical aspects of Office 365.

Our Microsoft Office 365 trainers have many years of experience to share during our courses.  We have a comprehensive range of hands-on Full Day, Half Day, Workshop and Live Online Training courses to help you gain practical experience and useful tips and tricks.

If you need group bookings or 1 on 1 on training, feel free to contact us to discuss your needs. We can also customise a course to your precise requirements.

Though we are based in Melbourne, Australia, we can provide in-house Microsoft Office 365 training nationwide.

Office 365 FAQ

What is Microsoft Office 365?

Office 365 is a cloud based, subscription service from Microsoft. Unlike the traditional way of buying software, where you would purchase Microsoft Office with an up-front payment, Office 365 is purchased via a monthly subscription, with updates available for as long as your subscription continues. The Microsoft Office suite of applications is downloaded to your computer or laptop, and online, browser based versions of the applications are available. You also have access to OneDrive, Microsoft’s cloud storage facility.

There are several variants of the Office 365 suite, and the specific version you purchase should be based on your particular business requirements. Microsoft Office 365 has an extensive range of features to help with the creation and maintenance of a large variety of business documents. The core suite of products includes:

  • Word
  • Excel
  • PowerPoint
  • Outlook
  • OneNote
  • Access

Depending on the version your business has purchased, you may also have access to additional services such as Skype for Business, SharePoint, Microsoft Teams, and more.

Who uses Office 365?

Office 365 has become increasingly popular with many businesses for its cloud storage, online functionality and collaboration features. Anybody currently using older Microsoft Office versions might consider upgrading to Office 365, not just for the updated applications, but also the additional services provided. The ability to create content on one device and have the content synchronised to all your devices, along with the ability to access your cloud based documents from anywhere, make Office 365 an attractive proposition for many.
Some significant features of Microsoft Office 365 are:

  • OneDrive cloud storage
  • Content synchronisation
  • Improved collaboration functions
  • Automatic application upgrades

These are just some of the features of Office 365, but of course there are many more. If you need to create just about any kind of business document, from spreadsheets to reports, email to instant messaging then you will probably have a use for Microsoft Office 365.

Should I buy an Office 365 for Dummies book or attend a Training Course?

Have you ever wondered why the Dummies books are so popular? Well, it’s probably because so many of us are self-taught, using Google to find out how to use a function, or we are shown how to use various tools by somebody else at work. Although this can be useful, it also means we tend to spend a lot of time with trial and error, or we are just picking up somebody else’s bad habits. Trial and error unfortunately involves a lot of error, and the bad habits you pick up will probably be passed on to the next person, so soon they spread across the business, meaning entire teams end up working inefficiently.

At this point, you might head to the bookstore or do an online search to find an Office 365 for Dummies book to help with some of those tricky problems. That’s a step in the right direction, and we sometimes use reference manuals ourselves. The problem is that it still takes time to find the information you need.

Our Microsoft Office 365 courses are designed to target the key features and tools included in the applications to help you get back to work and apply them right away.

Why choose Keystroke Learning?

We Know What Works – We specialise in hands-on, interactive training courses. Training managers and participants tell us that this approach is the most effective way to learn.
We Listen – By gaining a better understanding of your needs and listening to your feedback we can be sure the training is right for your abilities and goals.
We Innovate – We keep abreast of changing technologies and are constantly developing new courses and updating existing courses to reflect current best practices.

Why should I attend an Office 365 Training Course?

Attending a Office 365 course can help you to save time right away. You will be shown the best ways to use the application and you will learn shortcuts and tips that will continue to be of use long after your training course with Keystroke Learning has finished.

Typically, one of our experienced trainers will walk you through the features and functions of the software, then you will try them out on your own, with tips and guidance on getting the best out of the features. We also encourage participants to ask lots of questions to help you get the most out of your learning experience.
You’ll receive a manual to take away at the end of the course, as well as exercise files so you can practice later, or just to jog your memory when you need.

Is it best to do a full day or a half day course?

Well, it all depends on your particular needs and the amount of time you have available. A half day course will target a smaller number of topics, while a full day course allows time to cover more. Either way, the training course will provide in depth coverage of the features you need to learn, while allowing time for questions and interaction. It really comes down to the specific topics you want to cover and the time you have.

Where are you based?

We are based in Melbourne, but we can deliver in-house training right around Australia. We come to you.

Do you provide online training?

You bet, our Live Online Training courses can be delivered virtually anywhere around the world. Whether your employees are based in one location or various locations we can deliver live online training to them anywhere they have internet access.

What if I need help after my course?

Every course we run comes with post course support, just email us at support@keystrokelearning.com.au or use our support page.

Should I use the local or the online version of an application?

It all depends on where you are working and the device you are using. To some degree it is also a matter of personal choice.

If you typically travel to your place of work and have a computer at your desk, you will most likely use the regular desktop versions of your applications. Even if you work at home using a work laptop, you may still wish to use the desktop versions. If you tend to travel and don’t always have access to your own computer, you may be better to use the online version.

Online versions have the same basic functionality as the desktop versions, however, they are generally a little more limited. As a rule, online versions are best used for reading and basic editing of documents rather than advanced functionality.

Can I share a document?

Absolutely, there are several ways to share documents, and this functionality is baked right into the Office 365 applications. You can go to the file tab and choose a sharing option from there. You can also share right from title bar at the top right of the screen in most applications. Once you select either of these you will be presented with several options for sharing your documents. The ability to share documents right from within an application is one of the advantages of Office 365.

Not only can you share your documents, if you are using Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint, you can collaborate and co-author documents in real time. Just make sure you save your document in SharePoint or OneDrive to get started.

I keep hearing about the Cloud, so what is it?

We get this question a lot.  There seems to be a lot of uncertainty around “the cloud” and what it implies. The cloud simply refers to online storage. It means that your documents are stored online, instead of on the traditional file server in the back corner of your office. The advantage of storing your content in the cloud is that it is then available to you anywhere, anytime provided you have an internet connection.

Many of the services you probably use every day are a part of the cloud—everything from web-based email to mobile banking and online photo storage.

For example, you might be in a location where you do not have your own laptop, but you can use another computer. You can login to your Office 365 account, and use the online version of Excel to access the spreadsheet you need. Once you are done you can log out of your account, and any changes you have made are automatically available when you get back to the office.

Where did the Help button go?

One of the best Office 365 features is among its simplest, and it’s called Tell Me. If you are looking for a specific tool within Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, you are usually taken to a Microsoft Support website telling you how to open and use that tool. If you aren’t using the same version as the one discussed in the directions, this can be a problem.

Tell Me resolves the problem by simply giving you a link that opens the tool you are looking for. Type in a few words and the list of tools begins to populate, allowing you to select what you are looking for and to keep on working. Of course, we think the best option is to book a course with Keystroke Learning, but we may be a little biased.

How do I book a course?

You can fill in your details on our booking form but the easiest way is to give us a call on (03) 9999 7780 and let us take care of all the hard work.

What if I want to customise a course?

If you us need to customise a course for you we will be happy to work with you to build a training session, seminar, or whatever training mix is required to get the best outcome for your business. We will listen to your needs, and advise on the best options. Once we have a complete picture we can set up the training course and the materials to go with it.

Where to from here?

Your learning doesn’t stop once you have completed your course. We hope you will continue your experience by taking some time to practice what you have learned and apply it to your own situation and environment.

If we have done our job well, you may be inspired to learn even more by attending another course. If you are looking for something other than Office 365, we have a comprehensive range of courses available for you to choose from.

We are here to help, so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need any further advice.

What’s included in the course.

You’ll find there is quite a lot included in your course. All Keystroke Learning courses come with a USB Pen loaded with your course manual and exercise files, along with a notepad so you can scribble down all those handy shortcuts.
