An introductory course designed to explore computer applications that combine computer, software, scanner, digital camera, the Internet, a laser printer, and a color printer into a standalone publishing system. This course will begin with a brief explanation of the publishing and printing process—the terminology, the history, the jobs, the hardware and the software. The course is designed for the student who is interested in pursuing any career in the publishing, business or education fields, since most documents such as newsletters, yearbooks, brochures, invitations, and announcements are created and produced in-house, rather than by an outside print shop.
