Microsoft classes at Rockwall County Library

The Friends of the Rockwall County Library have funded Microsoft classes this past Fall and Spring to enhance the community's knowledge of digital tools. 

Some of the classes held at Rockwall County Library this past Spring were MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint classes, "Making Your Resume Speak Louder" and Effective Interviewing. 

As well as basics, the instructors taught attendees how to use more advanced features. 

VLOOKUP is a powerful Excel tool for manipulating data found in Excel tables. That's one of the features that Krystal taught attendees how to use in her "Excel Formulas" class.

Kelvin taught presentation skills in his PowerPoint, resume, and interviewing classes. Some of the skills he taught in his PowerPoint class were animations, transitions, and how to make exploding pie charts. 

Look for more opportunities to take Microsoft classes this Fall.
