Adobe InDesign CC: Introduction to Desktop Publishing

Wed 3 Jun 2020


Bookings for this course are placed on hold in response to the rapidly changing events due to COVID-19. The status of these courses will be reviewed towards the end of April 2020. See the University's COVID-19 page for up to date information.

Adobe InDesign CC is the industry leading page design and layout application. You will build up a publication from ready-prepared text, images and graphics in the same way as QuarkXpress and PageMaker.

Please note: This course requires that you use your CRSid and Raven password to log into Adobe Creative Cloud. If you currently log in to use Microsoft Office, then the same login details are used, and you do not need to do anything except to know your Raven password.

Otherwise, if you do not know your password, or have not changed your Raven password in the last three years, you must do so before attending the course, please go here: you can set the same password.

Please arrive to START THE COURSE PROMPTLY in order to set up the Adobe environment, if you don’t then you may find it more difficult to follow the instructor.

Target audience
  • All current University members (departments and colleges)
  • If you do not have a CRSid but you are eligible to attend the course, you MUST have access to your own Adobe Creative Cloud account, please contact us for advice:
  • Further details regarding eligibility criteria are available
  • Adobe InDesign CC - assumes little or no knowledge of the software. However, it would be beneficial to have a general understanding of personal computers and the Windows and Apple Mac operating system environment.
