Course Description

Editing Electronically is a required course for students enrolled in the Editing certificate. This course teaches students how to use Microsoft Word to make the editing process more efficient. Students will learn how to use common editing tools, such as Track Changes, more effectively. They will explore ways to customize the keyboard, the toolbar, and the ribbon to suit the way they work. Students will gain experience with advanced Word tools to reduce time spent on repetitive tasks and to increase accuracy. They will also learn how to work with authors who are reviewing electronically edited files and how to format files for production. Along the way, students will become more adept at overcoming technological challenges that can arise when editing electronically.

Students must have a working knowledge of computers, operating systems, Microsoft Word, basic editing tasks, and access to a computer with Microsoft Word 2016 or later. Separate sections of this course are offered for Mac and PC users. Please see individual section notes for important information on computer requirements.
