Create a macro or autotext to produce the name of a learning system

In Outlook 2016, I would like to know is there a way via macro or something to do something like auto text (or whatever Microsoft is calling it these days). We have a self-paced learning program called an E-Learning System, and I often have to explain this to our employees, and it also goes by the initials ELS. So instead of having to type all of that in for each email I'd like to create a macro (or something) where I can maybe do a keystroke shortcut and it would produce the following: "E-Learning System (ELS)" without the quotes. Is this possible in Outlook 2016?

Thanks in advance.

The easiest option would be to set it up in your autocorrect list.

In Outlook, go to File --> Settings --> Mail
Click the  "Spelling and AutoCorrect" button
Outlook's Autocorrect buttonOn the next screen, click the "AutoCorrect Options" button
Another layerThat will bring up the  autocorrect settings for your current language
Spelling and Autocorrect optionsThe lower half of that window is the things you have personalized Outlook and Word to change for you.
In the boxes at the middle, put ELS
In the next column, put "E-Learning System (ELS)"  (without the quotes)
Click the add button

Now when you type ELS, Word will replace it with the full name of your system.
