Microsoft Visio 2013

Video Description

Microsoft Visio 2013 is a powerful diagramming tool that helps create pictures out of complex information. Business plans, processes, flowcharts, organization charts, network diagrams, and more can be easily created with a few clicks of the mouse. In this VTC course, author Brian Culp introduces you to diagram creation by looking at a variety of diagram types and then by adding and editing the shapes these diagrams contain. He then shows you how to add personal touches to your diagrams by adding text, pictures, and changing shape styles. He also demonstrates how to integrate Visio with other Office applications, allowing for easy collaboration and sharing between diagram stakeholders. To begin learning today, simply click on the movie links.
