Lesson 01 -- Introduction to Microsoft WORD

A Virtual- Interactive-Visual Applications (VIVA) Lesson created by Prof.  Joseph  Auciello, (c) Copyright, May 2003, Joseph Auciello, and California Technical Training.

 

This introduces a new learning tool -- an "online" achievement / skill-building test that operates  "dual-mode":  (1) to verify knowledge (if you are certain of your answers); (2) to help you learn through 'figuring-it-out"  by opening Word 2000 in a 2nd window, and allowing you to actually test your answers!   Carefully evaluate, and  test, and double-check  each choice  as "True" or "False"  before hitting the "Submit" button.  "Hack" your way to success!   No credit for incorrect choices; partial credit for correct choices.  90% is passing:  Take the test as many times as necessary.  Topics covered: Opening Files, Toolbars..

  Since this test "doubles" as a Teaching Tool,  here's  how to  problem-solve your way to the correct answer(s) --  Given a question on "Page Numbers",  with Word open,  press <F1> for help,  click on the Help Panel,   enter "Page" in the keyword search box.  Don't just read about  "Adding Page Numbers",  but go ahead and do it.   By doing it, you "master" it!   We are more interested in your learning than we are in testing!
