Instructor Information

Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):

With the introduction of Microsoft Office 365: In Practice, 2021 Edition, and Windows 11, Microsoft makes a fundamental shift from “Office for Us” to “Microsoft with Others.” This change increases the emphasis on collaboration, accessibility of information, and use and display of information and data.

Author Randy Nordell utilizes the TIP Approach which promotes the transferability of skills from learning and practice to personal, educational, and professional use.
- Topic: Chapter text describes the application feature including where and why it is used.
- Instruction: How To’s provide step-by-step transferable instructions and serve as a reference guide.
- Practice: Pause & Practice projects within each chapter and end-of-chapter projects (Guided, Independent, Advanced, and Challenge) provide a variety of practice to reinforce learning.
