You have probably created simple documents such as letters and reports using word processing applications. You most likely applied basic type formatting, may have even included some graphics in the documents, and probably printed the documents yourself on a desktop printer. Now you may need to create high-quality single- and multiple-page documents for professional publication. In this course, you`ll use QuarkXPress to lay out professional quality single and multiple-page documents that include text and graphics, and are designed for professional printing and publication. Target participants are professional and prospective layout designers and technicians with any level of experience, but with little or no experience using QuarkXPress, who need to learn to use QuarkXPress to lay out publications. They are unlikely to be doing the printing themselves. They are more likely to work for medium sized and large companies, rather than small businesses. They have basic word processing skills and may already use Illustrator and Photoshop.
