Microsoft Publisher

This course will help students learn an entry-level desktop publishing application from Microsoft. Emphasis will be placed on page layout and design rather than text composition and proofing. Publisher is included in higher-end editions of Microsoft Office, reflecting Microsoft’s emphasis on the application as an easy-to-use and less expensive alternative to the “heavyweights” with a focus on the small business market where firms do not have dedicated design professionals available to make marketing materials and other documents. However, it has a relatively small share of the desktop publishing market / Microsoft publisher, which is dominated by Adobe InDesign and QuarkXPress.
