Microsoft Publisher 2013


Want to create print-ready documents that look like they were done by a graphic designer?
You can!
Event invitations, holiday cards, brochures, and flyers are all a snap when you discover the tricks of high-end desktop publishing in our Learn Microsoft Publisher 2013 course. In this 6.25-hour video training course, you’ll get the tools you need to add your unique touch of creativity to any kind of document.
To kick things off, your expert instructor will help you explore the Publisher interface and get comfortable with navigating your way around it. Next, you’ll discover how to delete and add pages, and how to move pages around when you want to change your document’s order. Videos on paragraph formatting, working with columns, and using fonts will then teach you to make an impact with your text. You’ll learn to do this with images, too, as you learn techniques for adding cool effects—textures, gradients, shadows, and more—to your visuals.
By the time the class is done, you’ll have mastered the process of preparing your Publisher project for professional printing or for publication on the internet.

What People Are Saying:

★★★★★ “Very complete course on Publisher 2013. I am self-taught and knew much of this information but was glad to learn more about master pages, setting custom font pairs, mail merges, and other details I didn’t know. Thank you!” –Carolyn Wilhelm

★★★★★ “The instructor has an excellent delivery of the information, very thorough explanations for almost all of the features, but moving fairly rapidly. At times I had trouble seeing where her pointer was on her screen so I did not see the tabs she was selecting, wondering if there is a way to color or highlight the pointer as it moves? Thanks much, she is a great instructor for what could be a dry course.” – Meghan Yeats

★★★★★ “Because I have limited familiarity with an older version of Publisher, the information provided so far is very helpful in refreshing and updating my knowledge of this software. I have just completed the course and found this training to be extremely “friendly” to someone who has limited overall computer skills. Although I am retired and am doing this to aid in a contract job I am doing, I will explore other Microsoft training being offered by Simon Sez IT just to improve my skill set. I cannot say enough about the instructor, the presentation format, or the material covered. ABSOLUTELY THE BEST EXPERIENCE I’VE HAD WITH COMPUTER TRAINING!” –Gerald Eggert

★★★★★ “So far so good. I switched from another Publisher course and I like this one much better so far. It is much more detailed and has better explanations. I am pleased so far.” -Mary Ellen Diot

★★★★★ “Only stuff I already knew – but very well presented – not too many words – but enough to give good overview for a beginner. MS Office experience helps – but this promises to become even better.” –Martin Nowak
