Online Tutorials Build Computer Skills - FREE

It's a problem as old as computers...

Trying to read, understand, and use a software manual to quickly learn how to operate a new software program rates one of the most frustrating experiences you can face.

If you browse the computer section of the local book store, or even look at a Video Professor disk on TV to try accelerating your learning curve, you'll soon find that a book (usually thicker than the original manual!) costs at least $29-59 and a simple tutorial on CD-Rom costs a minimum of $59 plus shipping and handling.

Learning how to operate you computer and basic software can be very frustrating, not to mention expensive!

But what most people don't realize is that basic computer, software, and other training is readily available online, some of it as good or better than those introductory courses that cost you a chunk of money.

Would you like to learn how to set up a web page?

Do you want to learn how to use your word processor for accomplishing more than just typing simple letters?

How about learning to buy and sell like a pro at online auction sites like eBay?

Find Tutorials
Log on to and browse through hundreds of tutorials!

Want to learn how to use Microsoft FrontPage?

Do a quick search for "FrontPage" and up pops a number of free tutorials to teach you everything from creating basic hyperlinks to working with javascript.

Though not all the tutorials are free, many of the tutorials listed come free of charge since the sites hosting the classes contain the usual advertising most of us have come to expect online.

After plowing through the site, you'll find some categories contain more available classes than others, but this site rates a serious look and a bookmark so you can check back on a regular basis.

Investigate here first before spending money on training, especially for introductory software help and general computer instruction.

Learn To Use eBay
If you want to learn how to use eBay, instead of spending money on a book or online course, why not go straight to the source?

Log on to for the best free education available when it comes to learning how to buy and sell on eBay.

Let's face it: the more successful you are as a buyer or seller, the more money eBay makes! It makes sense that they should provide a very detailed and helpful overview, as well as an extensive help section.

If you want a free "basic training" on eBay, start with eBay's site, then move on to third party information products if you want to expand your education.

Microsoft Office Training
Most people really have no clue how to use most of the features that come built into Microsoft Word, let alone the rest of Office. You can do some really impressive stuff with Office, if you know what it can do.

Log on to for an extensive collection of articles to help you learn how to operate various Microsoft Office programs more efficiently, including: Windows, Word, Outlook, Excel, and FrontPage.

Some articles might need updating periodically, but most of them make an excellent starting point when exploring new features.

More Sites
The following sites also offer free online training, however, understand that many of them use the introductory courses as a lead-in to get you to purchase additional books, classes, or other advanced instruction.
Land-Grant Training Alliance - teaches you how to use various software packages online and even has an interesting tutorial on how to use the Internet as a teaching tool to help others.
Offers a variety of introductory training courses for software packages dealing primarily with website creation, installing scripts and making your website do cool things!
Offers a variety of courses on everything from computer training and software packages to even dealing with some hardware issues and how to purchase the right digital camera.
