Publishing with InDesign

Lesson Plan Published 11/11/13 Last updated on 3/2/20

Digital publishing - publishing for print, web, and multiple devices - is now standard industry practice. Regardless of what you are creating - a newspaper, magazine, book, or catalog - there will be the need and demand to create digital versions. Using Adobe InDesign you can easily export documents to different formats and screens. Use this activity to introduce students to the printing options in Adobe InDesign, exporting to multiple screens, and using adaptive layouts for viewing on different devices.

​I have noted over the time that I have subscribed to Adobe that they want you to get the most from their products. The guides are down to earth and if one follows the steps then there should be no problem learning. Thank you Adobe.
