In Skillshare’s unique philosophy, everyone is a teacher, and everyone is a learner. Rather than a traditional lecture format, courses are offered within a global online learning community in which learners collaborate and learn by doing. Instructors are industry leaders who share their skills with anyone who wants to learn. No credits are offered. Founded by online entrepreneurs Michael Karnjanaprakorn and Malcolm Ong, Skillshare’s online “campus” was launched in April 2011. Its catalog has grown from 15 to more than 250 online courses that cover creative arts, entrepreneurship, branding and marketing, lifestyle and technology. The School of MakeOurMark, with courses in photography, illustration and tattooing, was launched in October 2013, and the School of Design went live the following month. Among the instructors who have taught courses are Seth Godin, founder of online marketing firm Yoyodyne, who teaches a class on entrepreneurship; DJ Young Guru, who leads a course on mixing and recording; and actor, writer and director James Franco, whose course focuses on screenwriting for short films. You can begin a Skillshare collaboration by taking an introductory course in a particular area to learn, for example, the fundamentals of Photoshop and expand your knowledge with a five-part, in-depth Photoshop series.

  • Inserting lists, images, and tables
  • Formatting headers and footers
  • Tracking Changes

I even conclude the course with a glimpse at my personal Word environment.

Learn the Fundements to Assist You In Taking My Other Courses

I've created several courses for writers (e.g. self-publishing) on Udemy, all of which assume that the student possesses a fundamental understanding of Microsoft Word. In this course, I provide the fundamental understanding required to fully comprehend the topics presented in my other courses.

Have You Struggled with the Basics of Word?

I can bring you up to speed in around 2 hours!!! The basics of Microsoft Word aren't really that difficult to comprehend. Once all the business and non-fiction writer functions are ignored, you're left with a fundamental set of core features that you'll learn to use like a pro. I'm sure you'll be able to follow along easily on this gentle introduction into this powerful word processor.

"I loved this course. I wish I had been able to take this class early in my writing career instead of figuring things out as I went along. Even now, after twenty-four published novels, I learned valuable shortcuts and refinements in these lessons that I will apply to my work immediately. Thank you Brian Jackson, for a well-thought-out and effective course geared to authors (but useful for others as well.)"
-- Susan Squires, New York Times Bestselling Author of the "Magic" Series

Let's Have Some Fun Together

I try to avoid anything that wouldn't be enjoyable. Join me on what I think is a fun course of discovery that will lay the foundations for later work together.
