How to..

..

I have just been pointed to an excellent free  resource for those of you who use spreadsheets or even those who don’t yet but would like to learn how to use them – a brand new website about Microsoft Excel!..

Now I’ve been using spreadsheets for many years, I love them, I even use excel as my calculator because my arthritic fingers often hit the wrong button on a calculator but I don’t realize so get an incorrect total, but with a spreadsheet, I can see the figures I enter and I just have a formula at the bottom that works out the total for me..

.

In my work with bookkeeping clients, I’ve created a spreadsheet to work out the split for  invoices with a mixture of tax and no tax items that have to be split into several cost centers – this was a real pain to do each time, but now it’s a breeze, all I need to do is enter invoice total, tax amount and % breakups and presto, the figures to enter are sitting there for me!

.

spreadsheetOSpreadsheeto is all about depth. That means each topic get thoroughly explained, in an easy-to-understand manner. All of their content is free and up to date. So even though you’re not an “Excel-nerd” (like they are), you can learn to do some pretty amazing things.

.

Even if this is not for you, if you know someone who has to use a spreadsheet, maybe for a club or organisation they belong to, pass on this link to this excellent  Excel training resource..

Here's the link to check it out yourself?

udemy_logo_600_w_backgroundI am a great fan of Udemy and have enrolled in a number of courses, some completed and others not yet.

I am in good company because there are 2 million in 190+ countries are taking online courses on Udemy. Course they are taking include:

Programming,  Yoga,  Design,  Photography,  Spanish,  Marketing,  Guitar,  Finance,  Cake Decorating and many many more

More than 12,000 courses (in 10 different languages!) have been published in our marketplace. Each course is designed & taught by an expert instructor and hundreds of new courses are published every month.

So whether you want to get promoted, break into a new industry, start a company, or just further a passion, Udemy’s here to help you achieve your goals.

It’s not just about taking other people’s courses either – anyone can be an instructor, teach a course and charge money for it!

It is a huge opportunity, because Udemy hosts all your course content for you, videos, power point presentations, audio, mindmaps, text etc, whatever teaching materials you prefer, with the proviso that at least 60% must be video content. They even have an excellent free course teaching you How to Create a Udemy Course.

Naturally, there a some standards to be met,

but there is so much help and support that I believe anyone who has something to share could teach it on Udemy.

I am practising what I preach and have just started my first course. Will update you as I go along……

It’s well worth signing up for Udemy’s newsletters or “Liking” their Facebook page so you hear about all the specials – for example, for a limited time you can enroll in courses from Infinite Skills for only $10 – a huge discount from the usual price of $99.
