Our courses were developed from our original classroom trainings. This helped to develop the curriculum of course topics we present that address the student’s real-world concerns and usage.

Our course design helps maximize the learning retention of our self-study courses. Each course contains different learning modalities that help reinforce the topics. We initially present each topic’s information in a course manual in a written, conversational style to provide a conceptual overview. These overviews are followed by instructions, showing the specific actions required to perform the tasks related to the topic. These topic actions are then combined with each other into exercises at the end of each chapter to show their interconnected relationships.

Each course topic is also enhanced with an audio-visual lesson in the form of a video. The video lesson shows how to perform the topic’s actions as the instructor simultaneously narrates the topic’s overview.

Whether you are completely new to Publisher or  upgrading from an older version, this course will empower you with the  knowledge and skills necessary to be a proficient user. We have incorporated  years of classroom training experience and teaching techniques to develop an  easy-to-use course that you can customize to meet your personal learning needs.  Simply launch a video lesson or  open the manual and you’re on your way to mastering Publisher.

Course Conclusion

Instruction Manual

Introductory Publisher Manual


Internal12 May 2015

This training never goes in depth in any feature. Moreover, it's quite annoying that the presenter often doesn't follow a logical sequence of steps: go to menu Z in panel Y in the tab X. Logical order would be: "In the ribbon, go to the tab X, then within the panel Y, click on the feature Z." I followed another training about Publisher from Simon Sez IT (on Udemy as well). There the presenter had an annoying voice but the instructions were clear and the content more efficiently packaged. For $10 I won't complain further, but you can have more value elsewhere.
