InDesign Interactive

Create powerful interactive publications that work across a range of digital platforms. Improve your InDesign skills by creating apps, ebooks, visually-rich websites and more.

As well as being the industry standard for designing printed material, Adobe InDesign is a powerful content layout package for creating interactive publications that support a wide range of cross-platform digital formats, from mobile devices to desktop computers.

Whether you want to produce apps and interactive books for phones and tablets, publish visually rich websites in a snap, or simply enrich PDF forms with pop-up menus and buttons, this Adobe authorised course is the most efficient way of getting up and running using InDesign's digital publishing features.

The course will also teach you how to add interactive content such as audio, movies, slideshows, panoramas, HTML overlays and even animation to InDesign documents, as demanded by the next generation of mobile content consumers.
