Check out what others are saying about the Microsoft Word - Basic course.

“I took a Word class in college.... in 1992. So much has changed. This course was an excellent way to bring me up to the newest features and how to effectively use them. For the past 25 years, my skills were limited to bold, italics, underline and print. So glad to have taken this course!”

James Leary

“I have been using Word for years, but I learned more in the few hours of taking this course than I did in all the years of actual usage. Excellent course, and I would highly recommend it to anyone using Word, either occasionally or constantly. ”

Cathy Huebner

“I have worked with Microsoft Word for many many years and I really found a lot of little tips that in the long run will help me be more efficient. I also must say because each class was broken into videos no longer than 5 minutes it helped my attention span. I recommend it.”

“Excellent course, very easy to understand and love the fact you can download everything, I have printed off most of the course and have put it in a file so its great to go back to if there is something I am doing and need to check to make sure I have it right.”

Raewyn McKenzie

“Very good course teaches you the basics of using Word and a refresher as I am very familiar with MS Word but found some useful tips. Definitely a course you want to get your hands on can't wait for the advance stuff.”

Akil Brown

“This was a great basic class. I thought I was pretty experienced but about 1/2 of the content I didn't know. It was also a good reminder of all that Word offers. The tutorial videos were very easy to follow and very well taught. The speaker did an excellent job of keeping it simple and not over teaching or under explaining. Highly recommend if you have never used Word or need a good refresher for 2013 Word and beyond. ”

“Useful Online Course for Improving Knowledge.”


“Excellent course for learning MS Word 2016, with videos, and practice files. The user interface is very well designed for easy learning, and motivation in finishing this course. Just when you think that you have mastered MS Word, you will soon find out how much more that can be learned from this GoSkills version of MS Word Basic. I am more than half way finished with the Expert course, and I can't wait to start, and finish all the Microsoft Courses because they are simplified by GoSkills. The courses are created and made for easy learning, finishing, and completing. ”
