Unlike Windows 7, Windows 8 is not a version update but an entirely new operating system with a completely different user interface. Windows 8 offers cloud integration of Windows 8 devices for access and sharing. The familiar Start Menu has been removed, and replaced with a Start Screen of metro-style apps. These apps appear on the Start Screen as tiles. According to Krames, “The core of what you do and want is still there, plus exciting new features, but users will have to learn how to access and share their information and applications.”
“The paradigm shift of this new operating system is significant and the learning curve will be larger than with past Windows systems,” comments Jo-L Hendrickson, President and CEO of Individual Software. “Professor Teaches Windows 8 software provides a way for users to quickly learn the new features of Windows 8 and stay current with the latest technology which will connect users with all of their Windows 8 devices.”
Professor Teaches® is the leading brand of training software for the past 12 years.* The Professor Teaches Windows 8 Tutorial Set has two courses and 160 lessons to teach individual users all of the features of Windows 8. The software is also available for business, corporate, education, government, and other multi-user settings.
