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 tools, such as redlining, more effectively. They will explore ways to customize the keyboard, the toolbar, and the ribbon to suit the way they work. They will gain experience with wildcard searches and macros designed to increase accuracy and reduce tedium. 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, they will become adept at overcoming technological challenges that can arise when editing electronically.
Students must have a working knowledge of computers, operating systems, Microsoft Word, and basic editing tasks. Please see individual sections for important information on the version of Word students should use in this class.
