Skillsoft logo The Gift that Keeps on Giving: Even More Outlook and Office 2007 Training Posted on the CBT Website

By Dr. Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner, Student Computing Services Manager

Several more Office and Outlook 2007 courses have been added to our UNT Computer-Based Training from SkillSoft . The new courses are as follows:

  • Data Security, Archiving and Working Offline in Outlook 2007
  • Business Contact Manager with Outlook 2007
  • Analyzing Data in Excel 2007
  • Exchanging Data with Excel 2007
  • Creating Custom Slide Shows in PowerPoint 2007
  • Distributing Presentations in PowerPoint 2007
  • Getting Started with Access 2007
  • Basic Access 2007 Tables
All of these courses (with the exception of the Access beginner ones) discuss 'power user' features in Office and Outlook 2007.

Additionally, more Linux, Project Management, and Oracle training has been added and a new training category on Sun Solaris with several offerings has been posted. These particular courses were added by request from a UNT community member which brings me to.....

Our SkillSoft contract gives us access to literally thousands of courses. The courses currently posted are ones that have been specifically requested by different members, departments, and areas at UNT. All UNT members are strongly encouraged to check out the ENTIRE SkillSoft catalog if there is a particular subject area in which they are interested that does not currently appear on our site. After finding and identifying the training, just email me and let me know what courses you want (be sure to send me the course number associated with the training). The enormous SkillSoft catalog is found at: and is searchable:
