Course description+

Our one-level Upgrading to Office Project 2010 courseware and training material will help students who are familiar with earlier versions of Project upgrade to the 2010 edition.

Section One is all about getting started. To begin, the new features of the application and the interface are covered. Then, students will learn how to customize the ribbon interface and the Quick Access toolbar.

Section Two provides in-depth information on each of Project’s standard tabs. Commonly used contextual tabs are also covered.

Section Three explores project management tools. First, templates are discussed. Then, methods for updating a project (including using the new Task Inspector) are covered. The section wraps up with a look at the new Timeline view and the new Team Planner. Information on automatic vs. manual task scheduling is also included.

Section Four begins with a look at Gantt chart formatting tools. Then, graphical indicators and project comparison tools are covered. Sharing techniques and printing commands are also discussed.

By the end of this Upgrading to Office Project 2010 training courseware, students will be able to make the most of Microsoft Project 2010’s new features. (Please note that Project 2010 Professional is used throughout this course. However, features specific to that edition are clearly noted so that those portions of the course can be skipped for students using the Standard edition.) As always, Velsoft training materials are fully customizable.
