About this course

This course includes:

  • Three self-paced lessons and three practice sessions for hands-on experience. Practices require Publisher 2007.
  • 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 predesigned Publisher publication and adapt it to create your own publication.
  • Add text to a publication, and then revise, reposition, and fit 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 about as much time as you’d spend using a word-processing program.

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