Digital Publishing Classes

Digital Publishing allows you to expand your reach by publishing for print, the Web, and tablets. The ability to add interactivity and media to digital publications lets you engage the reader in a new medium. You can bring magazine content, flyers, brochures, and sales literature to the web and tablet devices.

Our Digital Publishing with InDesign class will show you how you can use Adobe InDesign to turn new and existing publications into interactive experiences with animations, buttons, slide shows, hyperlinks, videos, and more. You will also learn how to publish those documents to different file formats suitable for sharing on the Web or other digital locations. [More on Digital Publishing]
