My friend Doug Thomas, from the Office Casual blog, is starting up a new project this week to bring free 15 minute webinars to the masses.  The goal of these live events are to provide training on how to use various elements of the Microsoft Office Software Suite.

According to his announcement blog post these sessions will be held live each Tuesday morning and run from 9:15 AM to 9:30 AM PDT and will be followed by a live question and answer session.
