Q: Where does this video come from?

A: Our online videos are recorded at our NYC campus, right across from Zaro’s. We handpick the best of our classes + workshops and fresh squeeze them to produce an online offering for students who prefer to learn on their own time, who live far from a GA campus, or who just love pressing rewind.

Q: If I pay for this class, do I own it?

A: When you pay for an online class recording you can view it forever. No need to download.

Q: Can I watch this on my iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire, or screen TV?

A: Right now you can only watch our online classes on your computer. We’ll soon make it available on mobile devices as well. If you have a big screen TV, can we come over and watch Gossip Girl?

Q: What other kinds of online classes does GA offer?

A: GA currently offers a number of free online livestream classes where you can ask the instructor questions, meet like-minded peers, and hide away from your office mates during lunch. Over the coming months we will slowly roll out an archive of classes that students will be able to purchase.

Q: Is there a default timezone for your live stream listings?

A: All of our live streams are labeled according to New York time (EST/EDT) in accordance with a panel of artisan watchmakers.

Q: I live on the other side of the globe and won't be awake when the live stream airs. What can I do?

A: Select the "live stream + video recording" option when purchasing and watch it whenever you like (after original airing, barring time travel ability.

Q: What is a "replay"?

A: A replay is a pre-recorded live steam that is being rebroadcast. The instructors will not be available to answer questions, but if you send questions to [email protected], we will attempt to pass them along and get them answered if possible (please allow time for delivery, no shipping and handling costs apply).

Q: How can I find out more about GA’s online classes?

A: You should check out our current lineup up of livestream classes. You should also sign-up for our weekly newsletter.

Q: What is GA’s refund policy?

A: We hope all our students enjoy our classes. If, for some reason, you would like to request a refund, please email [email protected] with a brief explanation. We’ll respond as soon as possible. Region-specific policies are listed here.
Class Delivery: Learn anywhere, on your schedule. Each week, you’ll complete a series of videos, quizzes, interactive activities and projects through our online platform, available to access at any time. You will be guided by a mentor, and you will be able to schedule live 1:1 mentoring sessions at a time that works for you both. Additional information on how to log into the online environment will be provided after purchasing the class.

What you'll learn in this excel class:

The Excel at Excel workshop is designed for students who are relatively familiar with other office productivity software, for example, Microsoft Word. (The students who succeed the most are comfortable using a computer and navigating around desktop programs on their own). It introduces a range of Excel topics giving students a taste of the potential that can be achieved with Excel and touches briefly on everything from navigation and layout to using functions and charts. This workshop was not designed to go over any topic in extreme detail, but more as a "sampler" of topics. The expectation is for students to be able to leave and be familiar with several of the Excel skills necessary for most positions that require some "basic to intermediate" Excel knowledge. This course is excellent prep for General Assembly's Data Analytics Courses.

Agenda (Not necessarily taught in the order below):

Terminology and Navigation
Formatting and Filling
Data Organization and Filtering
Conditional Formatting
Hiding and Grouping
Introduction to Formulas
Basic Math Functions
Conditional Math Functions
Reference Functions
Basic Data Cleaning
Defined Names
Freezing Views
Adding Notes and Comment
Input, gather, prep, and format data for more productive use and sharing.
Analyze data to improve decision making.
Save or export data, tables, and charts for others to use or view
Students should have a general familiarity with Excel including knowing how to navigate a spreadsheet and how to copy & paste. Please bring a laptop with Microsoft 2016 or 2019 installed (PC or Mac) but please note there may be minor differences between Microsoft's implementation on the two platforms. It is also highly recommended that you have a mouse. A second monitor or tablet is not required but highly recommended.

Students will be emailed case study files prior to class that they should download to their desktop. This is an interactive class, and your participation and questions are encouraged.

This class will occur completely online so students should also have a laptop or computer with at least 4GB RAM and a working microphone and camera. Class pre-work will be distributed via email which will include detailed instructions for downloading Zoom and Slack (where the class will be hosted). An internet connection of at least 10 Mpbs download speed is also highly recommeded.
School Notes:
For students enrolling in 12 week part time and immersive classes, it is not recommended that you book more than one class simultaneously.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy
If you can't make it to a class/workshop, please email us at [email protected] at least 7 days before the scheduled event date. No refunds will be given after this timeframe.
