As an educator, your job is to make instructional materials as palatable as possible for your student audience. The tricky part is that that audience consists of a variable mix of learning styles. For that reason, it’s important to use visual information wherever possible in addition to your lectures and text-based learning materials.

Learning how to insert images in Microsoft Word 2013 will allow both you and your students to produce more interesting and engaging resources for class projects, presentations, and other professional applications.

  • Insert your cursor or tap in the area of the Word document where you want the picture to be inserted.
  • Go to the Insert tab in the Illustrations section and then click on the Pictures button. An Insert Dialog box will appear where you clicked on the document.
  • You can now insert a picture from your hard drive, a CD or a flash drive. Choose the picture you want to insert, click on it and select Open. You can also double click on the picture.

The image is now inserted into the document. You can also choose to insert online images you have the rights to by clicking Online Pictures in the Insert tab and then searching for the image using the appropriate keyword. Use a similar technique using Clip Art by searching for a particular image in the Office.com field.

Become a Microsoft Word Power User

fast course Microsoft Word 2013 TextbookIt may seem logical to equate long-time Microsoft Word use with expertise. But in fact, quite the opposite can happen. Long-time Word users might miss out on learning new shortcuts and features, which can make them less efficient user than those who have recently completed a Microsoft Office 2013 training program.

If you want to help your employees be the best they can be, consider hosting a company-wide training session, using a MS Word FastCourse to bring them up to speed – literally! In the meantime, here are some tricks to help them become Microsoft Words Power Users.

Simplify formatting. Much of the work professionals do using Word ends up in web copy or printed using a publisher. Each of these formats has their own formatting preferences, which means you can spend a good deal of time trying to figure out why your text isn’t formatting properly. To prevent any formatting “fluff”, click on the Options dialogue, select the Proofing tab in the left column, select Auto Correct, and then un-click all of the selections. This will keep your formatting pared down to the basics.

Continue Working. When you open a document to continue working, hit Shift+F5 and it will take you to where you left off.

Change Case. Irritated by having to manually change letter cases, like when your headings are inconsistent? Shift+F3 allows you to toggle through case options efficiently.
