Who is this video intended for?
This is not a beginner course! We assume that you have been using Microsoft Word to complete tasks such as writing long research papers (e.g., thesis, dissertation), creating long technical documents and specifications, writing large scale proposals, and anything in Word longer than a few pages. If you occasionally create small documents under a page in length, this video may not be for you. More specifically, you are not likely to gain much from this presentation because the benefits of “Themes” and “Styles” becomes greater as the document length increases.
