One Microsoft Office application brings more students to live workshops than any other, and has the most hours of training watched on Lynda.com: Excel.
There is so much that Excel can do, and much of it is not obvious or intuitive, so ITS Training workshops and Lynda.com help to cover a lot of this information. At the same time, because of that depth, there are so many ways people use it – on co-op, someone may be using it while immersed in financial functions, while somebody else is a heavy user because of statistics and building scenarios.
To meet these varied needs, ITS Training has developed a new type of workshop. The Excel Open Lab will be offered monthly, and each session has no agenda other than what you as attendees bring. It’s meant to be a good group think tank to work on Excel problems people are having. So whether it is figuring out internal rate of return, or what do macros do, the workshop is wide open and no two sessions will be alike.
You can see all of the ITS Training workshops on the ITS Training registration site. We can also do workshops for student groups and we welcome ideas for new topics we don’t cover yet. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reach us.
