Introduction to Adobe InDesign Live Online Learning Courses

With InDesign, you can create professional publications including posters, flyers, brochures, magazines, newspapers, presentations and even eBooks. But at first glance, it can be intimidating, with lots of different tools to use.

In this 3-session online course, we will teach you how to use the essential features so you can get up and running straight away.

Live Online Learning is an interactive webinar, delivered using GoToTraining. Learners log into the software on their own machine and can be anywhere — at their desk or at home. The trainer then guides the learners through the material, encouraging participation and interaction.

The Small Print

The course will run remotely across three 90-minute sessions. 

All learners will need to either install GoToTraining on their machines or use the Web App in a browser (either Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge are supported). Full technical requirements are on the GoTo websiteYour link will be included in your joining instructions once you have booked your place — if you haven't received this email then please contact our team.

Learners should log into the training session 10 minutes before the start time to ensure that they have downloaded and set up GoTo correctly. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals.

Your active participation is expected: everyone will be heard and seen throughout, just as they would be if we were in a room together. To be heard, hear and seen you will need a microphone, speakers and camera – if you have a modern laptop that’s all you will need. Remember, you’ll need a quiet place to call from and a decent internet connection is a must.
