Online learning company lynda.com has released the first of several Microsoft
Office training courses it will offer this year, coinciding with the Microsoft
release of Office 2013 and Office 365.

Courses covering popular Microsoft programs like Excel, Word and Outlook have
been some of the most requested by lynda.com members. The company offers more
than 175 Microsoft courses, providing training for the widely used Office
applications and Windows 8, as well as more advanced Microsoft applications
for developers. It also offers training on the new subscription model

both. Here are the first courses timed with the latest release of Office:
