Relax knowing all of your students, no matter their background or experience level, will get everything they need, with practically zero amount of prep work, to start learning immediately. A great start during the first few weeks means fewer dropouts. Office Pro bridges the learning gap, so no one is lost, overwhelmed, or bored.
Benefit: All students need is a computer and Internet connection, literally. Office Pro works on a Mac or a PC and doesn't require Microsoft Office to use.
Give your students more choices for how they learn best through various learning methods while helping those who need extra practice using guided help and drill and practice labs.
Benefit: Students are happier because they are learning in a style that suits them. Office Pro also provides the extra content and practice they need to stay caught up and gives them the tools to help themselves instead of asking for individual help.
Keep your students motivated through a smooth and efficient online user experience that removes unnecessary steps and barriers that cause frustration or hinder the learning process. Get single sign-on, one-screen learning with no need to bounce between screens. Streamline learning with instant remediation in self-paced labs.
Benefit: Students no longer get stuck or frustrated, which means you spend less time troubleshooting and playing tech support.
Ensure your students gain deep-rooted skills that will last well beyond your class through scientific learning exercises designed to produce critical thinking and proficiency, not surface level knowledge. Students can drill and practice until they get the grade that they want — and that they have earned.
Benefit: With other learning solutions, students merely memorize step-by-step instructions. With Office Pro's smart labs, projects, and assessments, students learn skills by completing real-world tasks, using multiple pathways.
Students only need an internet connection on either a PC or MAC computer. With 14-day free access, they can log in from your LMS or testout.com and start learning immediately.
Office Pro puts everything students need into one adaptable, browser screen that they can study anytime, anywhere. Now there is no need to bounce between a textbook and courseware.
Engaging instructor-led videos are not just how-to videos, but students learn the “why” and real-world application behind using MS Office with 78+ hours of content.
Each video has a blend of both “teach me” and “show me”, as if you were sitting one-on-one with a student going back and forth between teaching and demonstrating in a classroom.
All videos come with interactive text that students download and print for notes. Speed control, ADA and ESL features, let students customize their learning experience.
Provide a real experience through lab simulations that allows students to complete tasks using multiple pathways, and lets them make and learn from their mistakes before labs are scored.
Office Pro has hints built into the system, and provides instant positive feedback when a task is correct, but gives no feedback when they make a mistake. This approach is conducive to critical thinking.
Build proficiency, speed, and “muscle memory” in completing tasks with Challenge Labs. Students build competence with unlimited drill & practice simulations with multiple scenarios.
Challenge labs have scorecards with a leaderboard to motivate students to keep practicing and get the time they want. Students can use hints as they practice but aren’t given a score unless they don’t use a hint.
Applied labs allow students to demonstrate they know how to perform tasks, without help, rather than memorize step-by-step instructions, that are easy to forget.
One click launches projects directly in the application without downloading, saving, and uploading so that nothing is lost or confusing. Cheating isn’t possible, so they can prove their proficiency in any MS version.
When students complete labs, it is accurately auto-graded, and a lab report is generated that contains valuable insights and explanations on how to complete each task on the next try.
Custom class reports help you to track each part of the learning journey and provides real-time insights so you can improve course ratings, decrease dropout rates, and personalize each interaction.
Create custom quizzes and exams using questions and labs from Office Pro to test competency or use questions from your own question bank.
Our practice exams help prepare students for the MOS 2019 certification exams and TestOut's Office Pro certification exam, which is 100% performance-based, and includes a complimentary voucher.

“I have been teaching Microsoft Office classes for nearly 30 years, and Office Pro is the best solution I’ve found for student success and retention. My students love how easy-to-use, enjoyable, and effective it is. They truly are learning, and student complaints and dropout rates have dropped significantly.”
