Computer Studies

 

Software and applications are constantly being updated, and developments in technology are generally fast. This can sometimes mean that keeping up can be difficult, especially if you are learning for the workplace. However, in many cases, it's the interface or features that are updated rather than the functions. For this reason, the computer courses at PLC School focus on the core functions of applications and operating systems. The aim is to teach in three main ways:

  • To teach the basic core functions of applications and operating systems
  • To provide information about major upgrades to common software and applications
  • To provide a general overview of current information technology and internet applications

In terms of software use, there are two options:

Official software installed at PLC School

PLC School has fully licensed, official software and operating systems installed on computers in the classroom. The installed versions may not be the very latest, but the core functions and processes are still relevant to later versions to a large extent. This is ideal for beginners, those who wish to learn the basics further, and students who don't have official software, or access to their own PC or device.

Official software on your own laptop or company PCs

You may have the very latest software installed on your own laptop or company PCs and devices. In this case, the processes and use of more recent software can be taught using the latest references and tutorials.

Applications

 

  • Document design
  • Word processing
  • Spreadsheets
  • Creating and processing graphics
  • Animated presentations

An application refers to application software (apps) which are programs that run on your computer's system. Application software includes word processors, spreadsheets, graphic design programs, games, media players etc. Microsoft Office Courses are available at PLC School for both corporate and private students.

 

Microsoft Office™

 

This suite of programs is commonly used in the workplace. There are several elements that all work together within the Windows (or Mac) operating systems.

PLC School and Training Centre focus on the key elements and can teach from the very beginning, or help to advance your knowledge.

Learning starts from the Microsoft Office 2007 application. This version includes the graphical user interface called the Fluent User Interface, known as the Ribbon. This replaced the menus and toolbars that were found on previous versions with a new tabbed toolbar. Versions prior to 2007 do not have the same navigation interface.

PLC School offers Microsoft Office 2007 on classroom computers. If you wish to learn using your own software on laptops or company PCs, tuition and classes support the following versions:

  • Office 2007 (version 12.0)
  • Office 2010 (version 15.0)
  • Office 2013 (version 14.0)
  • Office 2016 (version 16.0)

The Microsoft Office 2007 course will enable you to learn from an important software update point, and put you in good standing to go on to the later versions. The later versions have the same elements and functions, but include more or different features, such as extended file format support, user interface updates, support for touch, sharing and cloud environments, or payment by subscription (Office 365).

There are many elements to this software, some more advanced than others. You can focus on one aspect or you can work through each application to gain a good overview of the main components (Word, Excel, Powerpoint).

 

Microsoft Word

 

This is a widely used word processing software from Microsoft™. It can be used to create all kinds of documents with custom layouts or templates. Many businesses use Microsoft Word to create and print in-house literature, or as the standard software for company files. You can learn about the menu items, managing and saving files, importing images, creating tables and layouts, and much more.

 

Microsoft Excel

 

Microsoft Excel is a commercial spreadsheet application featuring calculation, graphing tools, pivot tables, and a macro programming language for Applications. It is commonly used for data and data involving calculation. Sum formulas, charts, tables and control of layouts and output are all covered in the course.

 

Microsoft Powerpoint

 

Powerpoint is presentation software and is commonly used for commercial presentations and slideshows. It is far easier to use than animation software and you can incorporate text and images along with special effects and animated elements. Part of this course involves working with clip-art and your own images along with many of the more advanced features.
