Attendees learned how to export e-books in EPUB, PDF, RTF and text formats using Adobe’s latest versions of InDesign and Acrobat, the advantages and disadvantages of various e-book formats, which formats have the greatest compatibility across e-readers, if you should avoid – or employ – Adobe’s Flash technology, simple techniques for generating PDF and EPUB e-books from InDesign, options for creating a more compelling user experience. All of these key concepts helped participants to understand the future of publishing.

Deconstructing Web Pages

sept 18 & 11, 2010

This workshop focused on the three fundamental technologies that are at the heart of every page: HTML (to specify the content), CSS (to specify the content’s style) and JavaScript (to describe the behavior). The course was taught in a studio (combined lecture and lab) setting using the latest hardware and software tools. Attendees had the opportunity to test their understanding by modifying and enhancing existing web pages. Using prebuilt pages for enhancements made more effective use of the valuable lab time. Each section of the course had take-away handouts to be used for self study after the course.
