InDesign in Graphics Australia

In the subject graphics in Queensland there have been a lot of changes with more of a focus on presentation and design. I am keen to teach and get students to use InDesign instead of Microsoft programs. Have you had success with this and do you have any teaching resources developed?

​When I first started teaching design, it was with Microsoft Word. What a pain!!! Laying out a poster design in Word, for example, is a nightmare. InDesign is SO much better to work with, although it's a little more complicated. When I first started teaching, I used the Classroom in a Book series.

I also recommend the ACATestPrep series or if you're trying to certify your students.
