online computer courses for kids
As technology advances more and more products and appliances are becoming computerised, or at least have some sort of computer chip or circuit board as part of the construction.
All we need to do is look at our homes to experience this for example CD players, Stereos; TV's even kitchen appliances Etc all have digital displays and some sort of programmable capabilities.
So for us to keep up with this technology we must have some basic knowledge about computers and their operating systems.
For those set in their ways, it's far too easy to say "I'm just not computer literate," if we form this opinion or are scared to embrace technology what effects will it have on our kids?
In today's modern world, computer training is considered to be of vital importance to almost everyone. No matter your age or schooling background, basic computer skills are a must.
If we look at our kids they are subjected to computers in various fashions from an early age from electronic toys to game consoles one of the most popular is the Xbox which is produced by one of the biggest computer companies on the planet which are Microsoft.
Computer courses for kids provide a very good learning platform to nurture the young brain, as children grow they crave and desire knowledge, and as parents, we have a responsibility to provide a suitable learning environment.
It's up to us to fashion and deliver that knowledge and to encourage learning and education; in respect of computer courses for kids they can from just about any part of our current educational curriculum, from basic spelling and grammar through to second languages, its common in most schools both junior and senior that some sort of course in computing forms part of the mandatory classes.
It's very common that our kids will grasp many aspects of computing without any great problems because they have no fear of learning new skills whereas adults who are set in their ways will very often take the easy route and claim it's too hard or again the old phrase "I'm just not computer literate," is used.
Many games console's offer educational games which are great for family entertainment, however, looking behind this we are promoting learning in a fun environment but more importantly, we have found an activity that's helping to encourage interaction with the kids on all different levels.
Everybody is developing core computing skills eliminating the fear of technology and having fun at the same time.

You can contact any third-party Office 2010 support experts to avail help in case of any issues with this application suite.
Word 2010 is one of the popular word processing applications, which is launched with many upgrades over its previous version, Word 2007. It is now possible to upgrade earlier versions of Word to the latest. But for this, one need to upgrade the whole Office package. Many improvements have been made in this new version. The first is with the interface, which is neat and easy to use. Next is the improvement over its Ribbon utility. This user-friendly application supports full-screen view and provides comfort to your eyes. If you are unable to install or run Office 2010 setup file, approach on-demand support for assistance.

Ribbon

Though the Ribbon was used for the first time in Office 2007, still the application was not astonishing. It seems identical to that of Word 2010 at first glance, but it is greatly improved and made fully functional with this release. It can be customized easily. A user can plan the commands frequently used and save a good amount of time while using the Ribbon tool. The quick access toolbar is still available in this version.

File Menu

The File Menu looks similar to the previous version of Word, with Ribbon on its right. Whenever a user clicks on a tab, plenty of possible options get displayed on a full screen. This helps the user gain more control over the document. Users can encrypt, examine or share the documents with ease. The document properties can also be changed without any difficulty.

This feature is awesome and lets the users switch from one document to another very easily. It is really helpful when a user wants to explore certain text from multiple documents. This version of Word does not follow the traditional Find and Replace options. Rather a Navigation Pane is used to search a text within multiple documents simply by entering a word in the search box. Once done, the chosen text gets highlighted instantly. The process is quick and saves a big amount of user's time.If you find any problems with this feature, you can contact third party Office 2010 support.
Protected View
Plenty of security options come in with Office 2010. With the help of Protected View, one can see the files and documents in a secure sandboxed environment. Users download a variety of documents from the web or emails very frequently. However, they are not aware of and protect the system from infection. The files with macros are disabled before being displayed. Call on-demand Office 2010 support services for the instant resolution of issues.
Other features
With Word 2010, a user can take a screenshot and introduce it to the documents on a click of a button. Still, one need not open a new application for this purpose. Moreover, the new Office holds photo-editing tools for imparting artistic impressions.
Similarly, document editing was never so easy. It gives ample choice to the users for better document editing. Users can paste, format and edit the documents with ease. For complete Office 2010 setup, get in touch with the third-party services.

Is Windows 8 the New XP? By Jason A Woodruff

Wednesday, 21 November 2012

update internet explorer 10
Is Windows 8 the New XP
There are a number of reasons Windows XP has stood the test of time and is still the number one choice for many businesses and consumers around the globe. Vista was a major catastrophe leaving a lot of people scratching their heads as to why they made the switch, whilst others were relishing in the satisfaction that they are still up and running smoothly with good old' XP. Many users are frustrated and out of pocket being left with el cheapo hardware underperforming in every way that matters from a business and recreational viewpoint since purchasing a Vista machine. In rolled the cavalry with Windows 7 and finally, it looked as though there was salvation for the Microsoft OS. But at what cost? The updating software was expensive enough but hardware as well? Give me a break. "Too little, too late" was the voice of the masses and not for going on a year after its launch did the population start to trust Microsoft again and take the plunge to switch their beloved XP over to Windows 7. But now move to Windows 8? Why?
The expectation for many is that businesses (and individuals) will treat the latest OS in the same way it has each new release - with doubt and contempt and no medium to long-term budget plans for upgrading, let alone jumping on the bandwagon the day it's financially and practically feasible. Ah, but we forget, the same was true back in XP's release days when many refused XP preferring the more "classic" view of Windows 98 or even ME over the new "Toys 'R' Us" look on offer. However, the "look" of XP has quickly become the norm and users of newer Windows version still set the XP "Classic Mode" as their choice of view in Explorer on newer machines. We've come to really like the way XP looked despite the new bells and whistles brought in by newer software. Windows 8, however, is a completely new ballgame, as those not familiar with the Metro UI (not unlike the Windows 8 phones) may think the world has gone mad for desktop usage.
XP is great, no bones about it. Is this new Windows 8 stable and secure? Let's face it, XP had its bugs and security issues back in the day. It was a good many year before more than 10% of businesses became fanboys of XP. Kinda strange how we forget what XP was like upon its release, and how only after numerous updates XP reached a pedestal worthy of the title "best OS Windows has on offer". Except for running perfectly on 64-bit machines, XP had everything the consumer needed from browsing speeds to gaming and everything (mundane) between. From a business perspective, it is secure, stable, low cost and gets the job done for those at their desktops and portable devices alike.
With support for XP continuing until April 2014 it's clear that Microsoft is not in a hurry to cause necessary upset among its dedicated band of followers. Indeed, the recommendation is that companies should update to Windows 7 before going to Windows 8, and that's for a number of reasons, some more noteworthy than others. General home users, well, if you're still on XP then there may be a plethora of reasons why you're not already on Vista/Windows 7 so the question remains is Windows 8 what you need?
So, which is right for you - Windows 8 or XP?
One reason XP has lasted 11 years at the top is due to its low hardware requirements. The hardware needed to support a pleasant experience with Vista was too much of an investment for most as it required a fair amount of hardware muscle to run optimally. Realising this, Microsoft shipped out Vista with dirt cheap, minimal spec hardware which, although had enough juice to get Vista up and running, as soon as you started using the hardware you now found yourself at crawling speed - just enough was not good enough. Today's movie watching, Youtube-ing, app using, Web-gaming multi-surfers want the whole pie, not just a slice, for the same cost. So if you're on a lower specification netbook or laptop, Windows 8 will be just as fast as XP as it doesn't have all the "junk" bundled in the two prior releases slowing up your system.
Let's face it, Vista sucked and didn't stand a chance of succession to the throne from a user perspective. If you're sat behind an older desktop Windows 8 will not enhance your user experience by much, and may actually hinder it, for instance, the exclusion of the "Start" button on the home screen. "Outrage!", you cry. From a business perspective, why at this early stage suffer potential crashes, bugs, security protocol issues, compatibility problems and staff re-training on something that won't make a difference on a day to day basis of the majority of staff working at desk jobs?
However, you're more of a mobile user with smartphones, touchscreen netbooks and tablets dominating your Microsoft arsenal then Windows 8 may be your best bet as it is designed with the touch-screen in mind. Microsoft is well aware of how much they are lagging behind in the latest technology race as a lot of smaller device users are preferring Android, Linux, Ubuntu and iOS operating systems. With XP being "old" and Vista/Windows 7 being "over the top" for low powered machines, the stripped down Windows 8 is ideal for these devices putting Microsoft as a possible contender in this corner of the market. If the cost of new hardware is not an issue, then for the sake of continuity, having a home/office setup the same as your portable device make perfect sense. Bye-bye XP.
In conclusion, only one thing is certain. Every new version of Windows is vying to obtain dominion over XP and convince the world that the mistakes and failures of Vista are long gone; not to worry or fear disaster striking, but to confidently update your XP systems. Unless you are on the cutting edge of technology and are focusing on the handheld, touch-screen devices for your home/business needs, it's clear that Windows 8 will not offer you much more in user experience than what you're currently requiring. From a budgeting perspective, it may be worthwhile holding out on upgrading both hardware and software until the dreaded doomsday in 2014 when support for XP dies or an another Windows version is released. Who knows, Windows 8 may be kicking strong, bug-free and secure in 2 years time, leaving only one question at the next budget meeting, "Why didn't we make the change years ago?".
Having worked as a Dell Engineer for the last 10 years I believe in the quality of Dell Servers, and I absolutely love reviewing their latest products. My love affair with Dell started when I first used one of their PCs at university; it felt like personal computing technology was really starting to blossom and my beloved Dell were the ones leading the way forward. I highly recommend them because they are so robust.

Tips To Help You Find The Most Appropriate University Or College For Your Chosen Field By Lindsay Newark

Sunday, 4 November 2012

appropriate behavior
and college
Going to college is something that a student should seriously think about. The opportunities that will be opened to you if you have a college diploma are practically endless. Moreover, your degree is one of your biggest weapons against competition in the labor market. If you want to land a lucrative and promising job, you have to build an impressive resume. In addition, if you are career-oriented, you need to have the right educational background to support that goal. That's why picking a good university or college to pursue your higher education is essential.
So how do you go about choosing the right college for your desired career goals? There are certainly lots to choose from. However, the question is which one can really provide you with the kind of education and practical training you need. Hence, before you finalize your decision, try to think about some essential details first. By assessing the various pros and cons of your options, you will be able to arrive at the most appropriate choice. That being said, the first thing you should do is to check out the top universities and colleges in your chosen field. Then, also, list down the less popular ones.
Secure copies of their course curriculum for your chosen field. Sometimes, these can be downloaded online in their respective websites. But if not, you can make a personal visit to the university or college if it is near or request for the same via e-mail. Now we all know that most of the time, the best colleges are located in places far away from home. This is why we have to make a thorough evaluation of their curriculum first before we make a personal visit. That way, we can save both time and money. Next, try to look into the requirements to get into that particular college and compare this with others.
Do not be misguided by the impressions you hear from other people or what media might show you. You can use these as references if you want, but don't let them dictate your decision. If you feel like the college can offer you the education that you need, by all means investigate it further. This now brings us to the third step which is to check out how to get application forms and submission deadlines. Along with this, also, look into the tuition fee ranges, scholarships, and other miscellaneous expenses. Lastly, discuss your final decisions with your family so they can help out, too.
At bestonlinecollege.org, you can study and earn your degree from home or while keeping your regular job. There are even choices for online masters programs and so much more.

Why IT Training Is Important?

Why IT Training Is Important


information technology definition
in Internet
Computers and the Internet have become larger and larger parts of people's everyday lives, which is why it is important that people are familiar with technology. While many children and young adults have been immersed in IT almost from birth, there are many people who did not grow up with technology and who should consider IT training classes. It is important for people to have a solid understanding of IT related subjects because it affects many aspects of their lives, including their ability to get jobs. Taking an IT course is not as difficult as many people believe.
The Need for IT in The Workplace
As businesses become increasingly dependent on computers and networks to manage day-to-day operations, it is also key that their employees have a strong foundation in using these types of technology. While most employers will train staff on how to use different programs and systems, many companies still require applicants to have a working knowledge of computers before they will consider employing them. This means that for people to be able to find jobs, it is becoming increasingly necessary to have an understanding of IT.
The vast majority of billing, payroll, account management and employee records systems are now handled through computers. Additionally, many companies now require staff to handle sick time, vacation leave and insurance through computer systems to automate these processes. Further, many companies are now only accepting applications and resumes through the Internet and email. People without basic IT skills will find it increasingly difficult to find employment.

The Importance of IT In Daily Life

In addition to needing to be able to deal with computers and the Internet to be able to succeed in most jobs, these skills are also becoming relevant in day-to-day life. The most convenient way for people to manage their bank accounts and pay bills is online, and many credit cards are also trying to get people to move away from paper statements and mailed in payments. In an effort to get people to move towards online banking, many companies have begun charging fees for people to make payments over the phone. While there is no question that people can get by without technology, it does provide a huge amount of convenience and can save people an enormous amount of time.

Where To Take IT Courses

Part of the reason that many people avoid IT classes is because they assume that they will have to go through extensive coursework or enroll in college. However, there are a number of computer and technology classes that are available for people of all levels of experience. Many community colleges allow people who are not seeking degrees to enroll and take introductory computer courses.
Another common option for people is to look for computer and technology based courses offered through local libraries and community centers. There are even a number of free courses that are offered by nonprofit organizations to help people become tech savvy so that they can find employment. While the idea of taking IT classes may be daunting to some, there are a wide variety of options that can educate people and help them become

The Criteria Needed To Boast Of Advanced Excel Skills By Jennifer Hugsworthy

Monday, 1 October 2012

Microsoft Excel 2013
Boast Of Advanced Excel Skills
The majority of clerical jobs will require skills in Microsoft Office. It may vary as to which package is regarded as the most important. In a Human Resources role, Microsoft Access may be fundamental due to a large amount of database use. However, in a doctor's office, a good understanding of Outlook diary management would be most important. Accountants and bookkeepers will need a sound understanding of Excel.
For those of us who need to have advanced Excel skills, it is often not clear how to define what actually is advanced Excel skill. The easiest way to find this out is to take an advanced Excel skills course. The areas covered will define skills required to be regarded as Excel advanced.
One key skill is to understand how to use, amend and create a Pivot Table or a Pivot Chart. Pivot Tables are a fundamental means of summarising large amounts out data in an easily manipulated format. Generally, Excel 2007 and Excel 2010 are more user-friendly for those who are new to Pivot Tables and Excel, with more active tutorials being developed. So, learning how to use Pivot Tables should not be as daunting as it was in early versions of Microsoft 1995 or 1997.
Another key skill is data sorting. Advanced Excel users will need to be able to sort data alphabetically or numerically, with the drop of a hat. This is a relatively simple skill to master.
Lookups are very important. Vertical lookups are especially important and they will require some learning of formula in order to become comfortable with using these items. This will enable you to extract key items from large bodies of data.
The recording of basic macros and basic editing of visual basic code is regarded as a key skill for advanced Excel. These may prove hard to master at first, but they can greatly improve your daily routine. The recording of a macro to carry out repetitive tasks can reduce your workload and eliminate repetitive tasks. At times, your macro may encounter difficulties, so being able to edit the visual basic code will ensure that you can maintain your macros. Furthermore, many roles in banking will have the spreadsheet with complex macros. In this scenario, you will often be required to use your visual basic editing skills in order to ensure that there are no malfunctions.
This article has detailed a few of the skills that will be expected of a Microsoft Excel advanced user, but there are many more functions that could have been included in this list.
