Learn how you can start with and modify a pre-designed publication in Microsoft® Office Publisher 2003 to create your own professional-looking newsletters, brochures, business cards, Web sites, and more.

About this course

This course includes:

  • Three self-paced lessons and three practice sessions for hands-on experience.
  • A short test at the end of each lesson; tests are not scored.
  • A Quick Reference Card you can take away from the course.


After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Start with a pre-designed Publisher publication and adapt it to create your own publication.
  • Add text to a publication, revise and reposition the text, create columns, and continue a story on another page.
  • Add a picture to a publication, change how the picture looks, and control how text wraps around it.

Learn how Publisher can help you create great-looking publications in the same amount of time (or less) than you'd spend using a word-processing program. Publisher makes it especially easy by giving you hundreds of professional designs to start from.

Publisher includes designs for newsletters, brochures, Web sites, business cards, postcards, greeting cards, media labels, and more. And once you pick up the basic skills you need to start and customize a publication, you'll be able to apply those same skills to the entire range of personal and business publication types now at your fingertips.
