Hands-On, On-Line, Live, Excel Training, Anywhere in the World. Our Microsoft Excel online courses and Microsoft Excel VBA online courses allow us to provide customized training for individual customers or companies anywhere in the world. Using GoToMeeting, EMAGENIT can train you at your desk, home, in your company meeting room, or in your company training facility. During our Excel online courses, you will be working live with an experienced Excel instructor typing the problems for the course, hands-on, as the instructor types them. You will see our instructor's computer and everything they type and they can see yours when given permission.
We Use GoToMeeting, Make Sure You Can Download It. We use GoToMeeting when broadcasting. To use GoToMeeting on your computer requires you to perform a simple download that does not usually violate security (always exceptions) and does not usually effect antivirus software (always exceptions). Be sure to try to download GoToMeeting before the course, as in days before the online Excel course, not 10 minutes before. If you cannot download it, give us a call and we will try to help. You can download GoToMeeting directly from their website at www.gotomeeting.com. This can usually be done by clicking the Join Meeting button in their menu and then punching in the meeting information.
Experience Driven, Real World, Excel Training. Our online Excel courses and online Excel VBA courses are taught by an experienced Excel instructor who develops advanced Microsoft Excel software for a living. The Microsoft Excel problems covered in our online courses reflect real world industry problems. EMAGENIT's 19+ years of Microsoft Excel software design and consulting experience are also reflected in our Excel online courses through the Excel strategies and construction methods presented. Long story short, we teach you what we do in Microsoft Excel when we develop software for customers.
How We Talk. EMAGENIT uses GoToMeeting VoIP in its Microsoft Excel online courses and Microsoft Excel VBA online courses which allows the instructor to talk to you through your computer and vice versa. To take advantage of this communication setup, you need a microphone and speakers for your computer. In the event you do not have them for your computer, EMAGENIT can provide conference calling for our customers in the US and internationally using SKYPE.
What Talking Gear to Use. When taking our online courses, we recommend using a headset or speaker phone if you have to use the conference line. That way you can type, talk and listen without having to hold a phone to your ears. We recommend Logitech microphones if you do not have a microphone for your computer and Logitech headsets for your phones for voice communication.
In a Conference Room, Why Not Project GoToMeeting. If you have a conference room or training room available, use a separate computer to log into GoToMeeting and project our Excel online course. You will also log your own computer into GoToMeeting to interact with the meeting. Using this strategy, you can use your computer for typing the Excel course problems and talking without having to toggle between Excel and GoToMeeting to see what to type. It is also gives the effect of having the instructor sit in the room with you. We use Optima projectors ourselves when training.
Use at Least Two Monitors for Viewing GoToMeeting. If you are using a computer to view our online Excel course, then we suggest you have at least two monitors to view GoToMeeting. Using this strategy, you can use one monitor to view GoToMeeting and the other monitor to view Microsoft Excel when creating the Excel course problems. If looking to use three monitors, our standard, EMAGENIT recommends using an adapter called J5 Create to hookup a third monitor to your computer via a USB port. If you are on the go and out of the office on your laptop, ASUS makes a cool led portable monitor called the M168B 16 inch led monitor that is powered from your computer's USB port. The monitor is 8mm thick, the thickness of a yellow writing pad, and is light weight. The B model has the higher resolution and is well worth the extra money. Since technology changes fast, look up ASUS portable led monitor for more recent versions, same goes for J5. One note here on the J5 style tech, some laptop USB drives do not have enough juice to run a led monitor. If this is the case, you will know it when you plug in the monitor and nothing happens, buy a powered USB hub to correct the problem.
