Online Training for Stanford
In addition to regularly scheduled hands-on and lecture classes covering a wide variety of software applications, Technology Training offers 1 ½ - 2 hour webinars available on the Mac and PC platforms through our training partner, People-OnTheGo.
Webinars available include training in Excel, Word, PowerPoint, MS Project, and SharePoint. Each webinar is $60. Complete course descriptions and registration are available through STARS.
NOTE: You must register for any of these sessions five (5) business days in advance of the webinar due to the logistics in setting you up as an attendee. You will receive additional instructions from People-OnTheGo directly. (Make sure the emails you receive from them do not end up in your SPAM filter.) The normal cancellation policy (5 business days) applies to these webinars.
