The most powerful and easy to use Office and computer basics courseware available

Give you and your students an easy start

A true log-in-and-learn solution

Relax knowing all of your students, no matter their background or experience level, will get everything they need, with practically zero amount of prep work, to start learning immediately. A great start during the first few weeks means fewer dropouts. Office Pro bridges the learning gap, so no one is lost, overwhelmed, or bored.

Benefit: All students need is a computer and Internet connection, literally. Office Pro works on a Mac or a PC and doesn't require Microsoft Office to use.
No two students are the same

Engaging content that aligns to individual needs

Give your students more choices for how they learn best through various learning methods while helping those who need extra practice using guided help and drill and practice labs.

Benefit: Students are happier because they are learning in a style that suits them. Office Pro also provides the extra content and practice they need to stay caught up and gives them the tools to help themselves instead of asking for individual help.
Easy like Sunday morning

An easy online experience

Keep your students motivated through a smooth and efficient online user experience that removes unnecessary steps and barriers that cause frustration or hinder the learning process. Get single sign-on, one-screen learning with no need to bounce between screens. Streamline learning with instant remediation in self-paced labs.

Benefit: Students no longer get stuck or frustrated, which means you spend less time troubleshooting and playing tech support.
SMART LABS AND PROJECTS THAT PERFORM BETTER THAN THE REAL THING

Build long-term skills over memorization that fades

Ensure your students gain deep-rooted skills that will last well beyond your class through scientific learning exercises designed to produce critical thinking and proficiency, not surface level knowledge. Students can drill and practice until they get the grade that they want  — and that they have earned.

Benefit: With other learning solutions, students merely memorize step-by-step instructions. With Office Pro's smart labs, projects, and assessments, students learn skills by completing real-world tasks, using multiple pathways.

Remove all learning barriers

Give an intuitive, easy user experience

Office Pro puts everything students need into one adaptable, browser screen that they can study anytime, anywhere. Now there is no need to bounce between a textbook and courseware.

Give an intuitive, easy user experience

Make learning more enjoyable

Engaging instructor-led videos are not just how-to videos, but students learn the “why” and real-world application behind using MS Office with 78+ hours of content.

Make learning more enjoyable

Provide 1-on-1 learning experiences

Each video has a blend of both “teach me” and “show me”, as if you were sitting one-on-one with a student going back and forth between teaching and demonstrating in a classroom.

Provide 1-on-1 learning experiences

Cater to different learning styles

All videos come interactive text that students download and print for notes. Speed control, ADA and ESL features, let students customize their learning experience.

Cater to different learning styles

Practice in a real-world way

Provide a real experience through lab simulations that allows students to complete tasks using multiple pathways, and lets them make and learn from their mistakes before labs are scored.

Practice in a real-world way

Encourage critical thinking

Office Pro has hints built into the system, and provides instant positive feedback when a task is correct, but gives no feedback when they make a mistake. This approach is conducive to critical thinking.

Encourage critical thinking

Bridge the learning gap

Build proficiency, speed, and “muscle memory” in completing tasks with Challenge Labs. Students build competence with unlimited drill & practice simulations with multiple scenarios.

Bridge the learning gap

Challenge through gamification

Challenge labs have scorecards with a leaderboard to motivate students to keep practicing and get the time they want. Students can use hints as they practice but aren’t given a score unless they don’t use a hint.

Challenge through gamification

Assess skills without hints

Applied labs allow students to demonstrate they know how to perform tasks, without help, rather than memorize step-by-step instructions, that are easy to forget.

Assess skills without hints

Prove competency with live in-app projects

One click launches projects directly in the application without downloading, saving, and uploading so that nothing is lost or confusing. Cheating isn’t possible, so they can prove their proficiency in any MS version.

Prove competency with live in-app projects

Remediate for faster proficiency

When students complete labs, it is accurately auto-graded, and a lab report is generated that contains valuable insights and explanations on how to complete each task on the next try.

Remediate for faster proficiency

Personalize with deep insights
