As a business owner, you know it is important to keep on top of technology changes. Since technology tends to change often, this can be daunting. One change that has happen recently is the Windows 10 release, but before you update all your computers, it might be a wise idea to check out Windows 10 training courses.
What to Look for in a Windows 10 Training Course
When you look for help online, you might notice that there is plenty of help out there for the individual user of Windows, but there isn’t as much for the small business owner. However, for a business owner, rolling out updates can have a greater impact on their business than the impact on someone sitting at home just surfing the web.
That’s why a little training is a good idea. Before you have your employees start to use this new update, you want to make sure they understand just how it works and any effect it will have on their day-to-day activities.
When looking for suitable training, you will want to ensure that it includes issues that are specific to businesses. This includes licensing and upgrades, networking, storage, backing up data, peripherals, Microsoft accounts, and most importantly any available security options and what they actually cover.
Additional topics that you should consider for your IT team include the following:
- Configuring and installing the update
• Troubleshooting and support
• Understanding the new features
Beyond all the behind the scenes considerations just mentioned, you will want Windows 10 courses that also address the issues your office staff will be dealing with on a daily basis as well.
For those staff members you will want the course to cover subjects such as the following:
- Personalizing your desktop
• Managing user accounts
• Tips for managing multiple windows
• Using Windows 10 on a tablet
• Customizing the start menu
• Making the update feel more familiar
You can find Windows 10 training courses that utilize both online teaching and classroom teaching. The advantage of taking an online course is that your staff can take it from anywhere, either the office or from home. Classroom training does have the advantage of interaction with the instructor and having the ability to ask questions and have them answered immediately. It is a good idea to talk with your staff and find out what they are most comfortable with before you schedule any training.
Like any update, the Windows 10 update comes with its own set of challenges and rewards. By taking advantage of training for both your IT team and your office staff, you will be able to bypass the challenges and skip right over to the rewards, and that is good for everyone.
