About This Course
This course was designed to teach you what you need to know to use Adobe InDesign 6. If you've used prior versions before, this course will show you how to navigate the newest release and use the updated features. However, if you've never used InDesign before, this course will start out with the very basics and work its way into the advanced features so, that by the time you're finished, you will be able to proficiently use InDesign to create your projects.
That said, we put together this course in a way that everyone, regardless of experience, will be able to learn the program. Each lesson covers a different aspect of InDesign. This first lesson, for example, teaches you how to navigate the program. Within each lesson are real world examples. You won't just be told how to do something. We'll walk you through step by step. At the end of every lesson, you'll find a lesson exercise. These are questions about what you've just learned to help you review and test your knowledge. You'll also find lesson assignments. Lesson assignments will not affect your course grade. They are completely optional. The lesson assignments are to help you put what you've learned into practice.
It's important to note that it is not required that you have access to Adobe InDesign CS6. You can take and pass this course without so much as opening the program. However, if you don't have access to the program, but would like to use it while you work on the course, you can download a free 30 day trial from the Adobe website. No credit card is required for the trial. All you will need to do is create an Adobe user ID if you don't already have one.
