Free online classes: software, business, marketing and IT

Posted on August 4, 2008. Filed under: Business, Career & Work, Education, Software & Technology, Uncategorized | Tags: , , |

Need to brush up on your Powerpoint or learn how ERP can streamline your business? Hewlett-Packard’s online HP Learning Center offers free online software, business, marketing, and IT classes for small to medium businesses (any individual can take them too). You can choose from:

Software & Technology (29 classes): Microsoft Office, web skills, operating systems and technology updates

Business/Marketing (9 classes): Real estate marketing, creating marketing collateral or direct mail, and a new course on learning how your business can implement ways to save energy with energy-efficient technologies in order to save money and conserve resources.

IT (14 classes): Best practices for IT: networking, data management, infrastructure and more.

Classes are free and available 24/7, but sometimes you need to purchase materials. For example, a while back I took an online class on organization based on the book, Organizing from the Inside Out by Julie Morgenstern (she’s had programs on PBS). Fortunately, a friend had a copy of the book, so I just borrowed it from her and didn’t need to purchase it.

More new classes coming in September:
– Business logos
– Firewall basics
– Microsoft® Excel 2007: introduction

– Microsoft® Windows Vista®: advanced customization
