Microsoft Office 2013 Resources

HPU is making the move to Microsoft Office 2013 this year. Office 2013 is very similar to previous versions of the Office suite. However, new features have been added and a few modifications made to the overall look and feel of the product. I would encourage you to utilize our new training resource, Atomic Learning, for Microsoft Office 2013 training as time permits. Please see the Getting Started Guide for information that will help you navigate to the Office 2013 Training, which has been added to the ‘Recommended Trainings’ section for all faculty and staff.

For those looking for a printable reference detailing the changes in Office 2013, we recommend the Quick Start Guides provided by Microsoft. These guides contain useful tips, shortcuts, and screenshots to help you find your way around the new Office suite.
