The objective of the lesson is for the user to be comfortable with operations like opening and creating Word documents, saving Word documents, navigating the Ribbon options toolbar, using the various program views, text entry and formatting, and setting document margins and orientation. The lesson teaches concepts through a combination of image-based slides and video tutorials.

The Novus project is a combination of video tutorials designed to be used in conjunction with a free business simulation software program. The Novus Business and IT Program contains 36 business and IT training videos, covering basic finance, accounting, marketing, economics, business strategy, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
