According to Microsoft, 750 million people use its Excel program worldwide, and Satya Nadella has referred to the spreadsheet software as the company’s most important consumer product. Excel has become a business staple since its launch in 1985 and is currently on its 29th iteration.

What makes Excel so popular is its breadth and depth of functionality. From simple sums and equations to pivot tables and complex analysis, there are endless ways to use this powerhouse program. With such a range of applications, it’s no wonder Excel has become a need-to-know skill for employers in every industry.
Figure out which learning style is right for you.
For the most part, online courses will either have instructor-led live classes or pre-recorded lessons. Instructor-led courses are the closest thing you will find to a real classroom experience. Via live video, you will watch your instructor teach a class along with other students attending the course. You can interact with your teacher and peers in real-time, creating a fully engaging experience. These courses work best for people who prefer to learn in a traditional classroom setting.
Pre-recorded lessons offer the greatest flexibility and allow you to learn at your own pace. Simply choose the course you’d like to take, watch the video, and complete any required work. The content of these classes will generally be the same as their instructor-led counterparts, just without the class interaction or ability to ask questions in real-time. This type of course works best for those who need a flexible schedule and can self-motivate to study and attend classes.
