Course Description

Course description

One of the most utilized areas of Office 365 is Exchange Online. We all receive email, manage appointments and contacts, and track our tasks. While we can use the Desktop client program Outlook to do this, as most of us do, the same Outlook features are available online as well. See just how easy it is to manage your email, set appointments, search and find content, and add tasks – all from the browser. Discover how to manage the Exchange settings online and even compare the differences in features between the Online and the Desktop Client versions of Outlook.

Each LearnNowOnline training course is made up of Modules (typically an hour in length). Within each module there are Topics (typically 15-30 minutes each) and Subtopics (typically 2-5 minutes each). There is a Post Exam for each Module that must be passed with a score of 70% or higher to successfully and fully complete the course.


Prerequisites

This course assumes that students are familiar with the basic use of Windows and common use of the mouse and keyboard. No prior experience with Office 365 is assumed.
