Adobe InDesign Essentials (Live Virtual Classroom)

If you design or lay out brochures, magazines, newspapers, books, posters, and flyers, you need InDesign. You can create drawings and graphics in Illustrator, but the tools for designing pages with complex, interlocking elements are in InDesign.

Method of Teaching

This course provides live instructor-led demonstration and discussions, student engagement and on-the-spot hands on exercises using Zoom, Google Classroom and Adobe InDesign CC. A design brief will be given to the students to accomplish and present on the last day.
