Microsoft Office 2013 Training Videos

(These files are the same as the Office 2013 Training Presentations, but play in video form and can be viewed through your internet browser. However, the quality is slightly different and there are brief pauses throughout. The videos below are best viewed using the 720p quality setting. This can be changed once the video opens up. Just click on the "Settings" tab in the lower right corner of the video window. It looks like a small gear wheel. The videos may still appear somewhat blurry, but they will be viewable on a computer screen.)
