What are Wise Owl shorts?▼
We've been publishing training videos on our website for some years now, and have built up quite a collection.
Each series of videos is designed to teach you a specific topic in a structured way, and has to fit into the context of the video training series to which it belongs.
For some time now, we've wanted the freedom to publish short one-off videos on specific topics, where those videos don't necessarily fit into a structured course. That's what our shorts are!
Wise Owl shorts tend to be a bit more informal than our training videos, and are nearly always (the clue's in the name!) quite a lot shorter.
What other free resources do you have online?▼
Here's a complete list of the free resources that you can access on this site:
|Blogs||Our blogs include online training pages, help on specific subjects and random musings about software, the Universe and everything!|
|Training exercises||We publish all of the exercises from our classroom and online training courses on our website.|
|Self-paced online courses||Full self-paced training courses that you can take online (currently we have one published in Excel VBA).|
|Video shorts||This section of our website includes short videos which don't necessarily form part of a structured training course.|
|Skills tests||You can test your skills in a range of subjects by answering 20 questions in a given time period, and can then compare your answers with thousands of other people who have taken the same test.|
|Training videos||At the time of writing we have 388 video tutorials on our website, although we're adding to the number all the time.|
What paid training do you offer?▼
In between publishing oodles of free training resources as above, we somehow find time to fit in the day job (providing excellent business-to-business classroom and online training). We offer two main types of course:
|Type of course||How it works|
|Scheduled courses||We publish a full range of courses open to the public (you can see a single-sheet PDF listing our current course schedule here). There will be a maximum of 5 people on any course. Our current venues are London and Manchester.|
|Tailored courses||If you have a group of up to 6 people who want training you can arrange a tailored course, either at your venue (in which case we will provide and set up the necessary equipment) or online.|
