Introducing How-to Outlook – Scenario-based Outlook Tutorials

Posted on

It is our passion to help users increase productivity using Microsoft Office for many years through our scenario-based tutorials. We have received astounding feedback from people around the world, and our tutorials are available through numerous online training platforms such as Udemy, CyberU, and OpenSesame – in addition to our own website Business Productivity.

While many individuals and organizations have already transitioned to subscription-based applications like Office 365,  there are many users and businesses that still use the outdated, standalone editions of Microsoft Office, including Office 2010 and Office 2013. We believe there is a sizeable demographic that do not have the economic means to invest in courses on how to use these tools effectively, that would significantly benefit from mining into the wealth of knowledge we provide through our tutorials.

This is where we introduce How-to Outlook. How-to Outlook is a new website where we make our tutorials available completely free of charge to help people across the world master Microsoft Outlook 2013 to manage contacts, calendar, tasks, and email efficiently and effectively with Outlook.

These tutorials consist of 10 scenarios that we believe are essential for Microsoft Outlook users. They are easy to follow and are available to view in both video and text formats. The good news is that these tutorials are unrestricted and can be accessed from anywhere in the world (where YouTube is available), on any smart device, at any time. (If you prefer, the tutorials are also available directly from our YouTube channel.)

What makes How to Outlook tutorials different?

  1. Our Scenario-based tutorials are based on real life and are more engaging to learn
  2. Our tutorials focus on end results rather than emphasizing on individual features
  3. Each tutorial demonstrates best practices
  4. They are easy to understand with captions provided for those with hearing impairment or have trouble grasping English

We are so happy to share our knowledge with a larger audience and we sincerely believe How to Outlook and our other How-to sites will help end-users everywhere help increase their productivity.

For those who find advertisements to be annoying, or desire a richer learning environment, we continue to provide our Outlook tutorials ad-free through Business Productivity, Udemy, CyberU and now also through Vimeo On Demand.

We are planning to launch more websites with free tutorials on Microsoft Office. Check out our other How-to sites including and that we had launched earlier for free Word 2013 and PowerPoint 2013 tutorials respectively.
