Microsoft Office (MS Office) is available for both Windows and Macintosh computers. The current Windows version is Microsoft Office XP. If the programs are bought separately, it is equivalent to version 2002—Word 2002, Excel 2002, or PowerPoint 2002. The current Macintosh versions are Microsoft Office 2001 for MacOS 9.x or earlier, and Microsoft Office v.XTM for MacOS X.
This book is designed to provide tutorials to use the MS Office programs in the Windows and Macintosh platforms—MS Office XP, 2001 and v.X. MS Office has different collections of programs between the Windows and Macintosh versions. Also within the Windows versions the included programs are different. The common denominator is Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint. Therefore, the tutorials in this book are developed for these programs. More information about MS Office can be found in Chapter 1, "Microsoft Office in Windows and Macintosh."
This book provides step-by-step tutorial lessons to enhance the hands-on skills of using the common application programs of MS Office and to develop ideas for integrating the programs into teaching and learning. There are six chapters:
All the chapters can be used on both Windows (MS Office XP) and Macintosh (MS Office 2001 and v.X) to achieve the same tasks. MS Office programs—Word, Excel, and PowerPoint—are cross-platform. Therefore, the files can be used between the Windows and Macintosh versions. At the same time, unlike many other application programs, the MS Office programs are not updated simultaneously for the Windows and Macintosh versions. Therefore, they are not completely identical. In cases where minor differences exist, the instruction is specified for the platforms.
A chapter is organized with the following sections:
There is a CD packaged at the back of the book. Throughout the book, when there is a file to refer to on the accompanying CD, it is indicated with the icon. The files are for the hands-on activities, Projects, and Applications.
For the hands-on activities, sample files and QuickTime movies are included. The sample files examine the contents in depth or show the finished segments of the instruction. The QuickTime movies show the hands-on instruction as an overview in the beginning when the movement on the computer screen is essential (e.g., using drawing tools), and enhance the explanation for the difficult segments in the contents.
For Projects, when it is required to answer the questions or to conduct precise tasks, the answers or the finished sample projects are included in the CD.
For Applications, files are included to support the provided example applications.
