At Rapid IT, computer tutoring is a service that we offer to everyone. That, along with self-teaching, can be extremely valuable ways to learn. Let’s discuss some key methods which you can implement in your office, or even personally, to learn more about IT services.

Identify needs

The first step to learning is by understanding what your organisation is going to need you to do in an IT context. For example, if your boss is looking for you to write emails all day, spending hours (and possibly money) on an Excel tutorial (a program for spreadsheets) is going to be fruitless. The opposite is of course also true. By identifying your IT needs, will lead to directed learning from the ground up. To achieve this, consider what your daily tasks are, and how these will be achieved through computer use. From there, learning materials can be found accordingly.

Start with the basics

Computers and IT generally are very much topics that you either know about, or you don’t; so there’s no shame in not knowing, but wanting to learn. If you really don’t know much about computers, be sure to start from the ground up. There are plenty of resources out there to help with this, and as an example of this, there is this basic course offered by GCF Global. This sort of information/training is perfect for a new hire who may not have had the opportunity to learn about computers, but is eager to get started.

In-person training

Having a trainer on-site to teach staff about computers or computer systems can be invaluable. This is especially true with industry-specific solutions, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, which is often extremely complex for even experienced computer users. So, hiring a managed service provider, such as Rapid IT, to assist with training is going to speed along the learning process significantly. Being experienced in computer tutoring, managed service providers have heard it all before, and are amply prepared to help your staff be as efficient as possible.

Learning about computers when you don’t know much to start with can be extremely tough. However, by identifying key learning opportunities, starting by learning the basics, and enlisting expert assistance, it is indeed possible to learn a lot about IT services.
