I have started an Excel course on Learnesy and can say that it is very educational and flexible! All videos and chapters are long enough to stay focused. Great for learning with tests after each section too. Can highly recommend courses at Learnesy!
I have taken Learnsey's basic Excel course. Very pleased, the course was easy to follow and was well laid out with lectures and exercises. I received quick and helpful support when I needed support.Can really recommend this course.
I love the Learnesy Excel courses! They are really practice-oriented. The lessons are short interactive videos that catch your attention. I have considerably improved my Excel skills after the basic one. I would recommend it! Definitely!
Overall a good course, with a very easy/basic start for the first half (5-6 modules) before getting into the 'good stuff'.I consider myself an above-average user of MS Excel and the Office Suite and the later modules did cover some topics in an easy-to-follow way.I did encounter several .xlsx-files along the way with assignments who had suffered from lacking translation and some details were clearly wrong in the file compared to the quiz.These were settings and not values, so the main content can still be approved quality-wise.
Online course: Excell Bas (basics)Great introduction to Excell and its tools!This is, I believe, one of the first and most basic courses that Learnesy offers. It introduces topics such as functions and formulas, navigation through the program, hotkeys, IF-formulas and much more. Each module in the course has a few video lessons of a couple of minutes long and ends with a quiz about the lesson. The quizes also includes applying the lesson learnt to a pre-set excel sheet, which made it easy to quickly learn the tool as I got to apply it directly. As the Excel program is built with multiple tools, the basics course was structured appropriately by going through the tools one by one with a subsequent quiz to test the knowledge.Previously I have used Excell throughout my studies, with some basic application such as creating functions, using pivot tables etc. to handle large data sets for assignments in various courses (mainly industrial economics, material handling and international distribution). This made the first lessons fairly easy as I am familiar with the program, but I also learnt something new in most of the first lessons. For instance, when learning about how to format sheets in excell, the lesson also explained how this can be used in large data sets, which put this into perspective how one tool is useful to solve more complex problems.As I had previous experience, especially the first 3 lessons were rather easy. When I did them, it felt a bit "unnecessary" as I already knew these bits. But they are easy and it goes fast to go through, and it probably depends on the experience of the learner. As the course progressed, I learnt more useful tools that I will continue to use from now on. Especially the lesson about IF-functions and search line/column was new to me, and something I believe I will use in my further studies and career.Something I would have like to have when working with the course, is some form of pdf showing an overview of the course before starting. Even though each lesson is labled, I believe it would be easier to get a grip of the entire course with a mindmap before starting the first lesson.To sum up the Excel Bas course:PROS+ Easy to use and understand the lessons+ Explains usages of different tools for further application+ Great content for a basics course with new tips and tricks as well as new knowledge of tools. Well suited for a self-taught learnerPOTENTIAL IMPROVEMENTS- Have a "cheat sheet" with everything learnt from the course to have as a refresher for my self- Include a mindmap of the overview of the course prior to starting the first lesson- Some quizes were a bit too easy, but that may depend on the course and your level of expertise in Excel prior to enrolling in a courseAll in all, a great course to improve my abilities in excel!
