Learn to Love the Ribbon

So, how many of you have upgraded to Office 2010? What about Office 2007? How many of you LOVE the ribbon? Hello? Anyone?

I have heard a significant number of complaints about the ribbon in Office. Now that it has been fully integrated in Office 2010 (and in some of the Windows 7 applications, like WordPad and Paint), I am pretty sure that it’s here to stay. As a corporate trainer, I have been recently asked to start teaching more and more courses about using Office 2010. (Apparently, many organizations skipped Office 2007.) I always try to make my classes as fun as possible, and I thought I would share with you one of the ways in which to make the ribbon more fun while also teaching your end users to love it.

Have you heard of Ribbon Hero? It’s a game for Office 2007 and Office 2010 that helps you to improve your skills with the ribbon. You score points as you learn about and use features on the ribbon. As if that weren’t enough, it’s FREE.

Take a look at the Ribbon Hero: http://www.ribbonhero.com/. You’ll learn to love the ribbon!
