## Description

*For use in the Office Applications course*

** **

*Make Microsoft Office, Your Office*

** **

** Your Office **is the Office Applications textbook written for instructors who want more than a ‘skill & drill’ book that enables students to learn discreet tasks but fails to illustrate the big picture of how these skills work together. The

*Your Office*series teaches students the way Microsoft Office works in the real world, not just in a classroom.

With *Your Office*, students will learn to use Office to make decisions and solve problems in a business context. *Your Office* bridges the gap between skill and application, and empowers students to master Office 2013 as a tool to solve problems and make decisions. A real-world business context prepares students to become masters of the software, using it for efficiency, effectiveness, problem-solving and decision-making.

**Teaching and Learning Experience**

This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience—for you *and* your students. Here’s how:

*Modular Structure Promotes Concept Retention:*Provides a strong foundation for students to practice in each workshop and then synthesize the objectives covered over two workshops—effectively challenging students to really retain what they learned as opposed to learning, and then forgetting soon after.*Case Progression Promotes Concept Mastery*: Students progress from learning the skills in each Office Application to using the applications as tools to make business decisions.*Realistic Series Scenario Provides Business Context:*Students gain a solid understanding of how an organization works as they see how individuals in all facets of a business interact with tools like Microsoft Office and use information to make decisions.*Engaging Features Help Students Make Microsoft Office Their Own:*Videos, Visual Summaries, and Real-World Advice boxes are among the features that help students master Office to make decisions and solve problems in a business context.
