PUB: 636- Electronic Publishing Course
This course is about creating a web presence and understanding the fundamentals of online media (a technical perspective). It is a hands-on course and students will learn how to create, manage and understand what the components of a website are and ultimately create a publishing website as a final project.
This year I am including more tutorials and hands-on experience with responsive design and the use of e-Commerce and creating a mobile app. The course is taught using Adobe Creative Cloud and Creative Suite software that is available in the publishing computer lab. Jerry DeMarco, Managing Editor of the Dailyvoice.com, will be one of our guest speaker.
