    Online Learning for Beginners

    Hello, I am tasked by my boss to find some 'beginner' classes for Excel to help train some current employees. The employees that will be learning Excel do not have time to dedicate an entire day to training, so I'd like to avoid options like going to a 'Fred Pryor' seminar as my number 1 option to present to my boss.
    I think the best way to approach this training to is find some YouTube videos on Excel (free). My problem is, there are literally 1000's of Excel videos out there. Can somebody suggest a YouTube channel to subscribe to that covers both basic and advanced Excel functions? If I had to guess, the most advanced formula they would need to use would be a V Lookup.

    The people taking the training are so oblivious to Excel, that they don't even know what it is capable of. So there may be some other functions that would greatly help them, but they aren't aware of it yet. That's why I would like a 'well-rounded' Excel channel on YouTube.

    Also, if you have other options that cost money, please mention them too.

    Any help / suggestions would be appreciated.

    Maybe use a web tutorial, they will get the basics. When they are ready to get advanced knowledge on xl, they can.

    SophiaMasona - please read forum rule 13 (below) and then go to your profile and remove the link in your signature line. Thank you.

    13a. Do not put links to commercial sites or services or to competing forums in signatures and posts.

    Cross promotion of, or links to, other forums which deal with the same subject matter as this forum is prohibited.
    Links in posts to your own blogs or code site should be directly to the relevant free material on your site that addresses the topic of that thread specifically.
    Links in signatures should be to the landing page on your site that predominantly presents your free material. Any content that advertises commercial services should be on a page that is accessed from your home page. Do not link directly to your commercial offerings from the forum.
    Random links to any commercial offering will be removed, possibly with a ban if considered spam.
    If for some reason you are convinced you should be allowed to link to your commercial services or pages directly, seek permission from the Moderation/Administration team in advance. Do not get your hopes up, but it can't hurt to ask.

    13b. Do not put links to personal sites or services as your sole contribution here on the forum.

    If the only thing you have to offer, even in the Water Cooler and Tools/Tips sections, is links to your own blogs or personal sites/services, let us respectfully say, "No thank you." This is not meant personally, but the Excel Forum is a community, if you wish to participate substantively within this community, then do so.
    Posting links to your free tools and tips directly in the threads of our questioners is acceptable if it represents less than 10% of your contributions. Thus, we only expect to see you pointing people to your own free links 1 in 10 posts, if that.
    Earn your stripes helping directly the way we all do, then the linking for common tasks is natural and acceptable.

    13c. Do not solicit payments in your posts or signatures.

    This is a free forum, all of your free forum contributions will be offered in this spirit, both in posts and signatures.

    So far I only depended on Google. Now I am member of some useful excel forums. I think Google is the best teacher. Everything is available in Google. You just have to know the way to search it.
