Overview of Outlook

Communication is one of those things I teach at a private college. It is a good topic to teach alongside Office skills, as Office is, essentially, a communication tool. All of it—not just Outlook. When we write, create lists, chart data, and crunch numbers, we are communicating ideas, discoveries, and findings.

Email is often used as the method to deliver such communication, and Outlook is used by more businesses to manage email.

But Outlook is more than an email tool. It helps you plan meetings, schedule appointments, create to-do lists, remember notes, and journal your activities. Though you can do all of these things for yourself, you can also share these things.

With Outlook 2010, social networking has been integrated. You can view others’ Facebook status, tweets, and manage your communication with contacts in greater detail. You can do almost everything in Outlook from the contacts module, from email to scheduling appointments.

In the next few weeks, you will learn how to use Outlook to manage your email, contacts, calendar, and your social network. I hope you are looking forward to this as much as I am.
