Class Introduction

Welcome, everybody. I'm really glad that you're able to join me here for this Publish Online course. What we're going to be looking at throughout the course is we're going to be looking at how you can enhance your existing InDesign skills and produce documents that can be consumed anywhere online. Whether it's on a device or whether it's on a desktop browser, you're gonna use those things anywhere. No plugin dependencies, it's all using standard-spaced animation and trickery to do things, and once more, if you need to, you can actually just do a slight tweak to repurpose it for EPUB3. You could even publish to iBooks using the same techniques. All you'll need to be able to do is if you can do anything like place objects in InDesign, and if you can draw simple shapes, and if you can manipulate text, then you already have some of the skills required to do this. The first thing we'll need to look at in just a moment is we'll need to look at the document setup and we're gonna cover the bas...

ics of animation. We're going to cover different key events and triggers, and how they influence what we're doing. We're going to look at some of the fab things built in InDesign that allow us to go beyond the confines of a page. We're going to look at working with layers. There are some things in layers that are kind of important when you're working with interactive documents. We're going to look at adding in audio and video, then we'll be combining things together. We'll be making interactions that also work with animation. We'll be building out a little menu system. We'll be putting in some key triggers and then doing some multiple actions, enhancing our movies a bit further than that. Then, adding some destinations that our viewers can go to. Publish Online is part of the service part of Creative Cloud. Of course, the desktop applications and the mobile applications, they're the things you know and love, but Publish Online is one of the services that exits around that.
