This innovative product from Adobe Press and video2brain combines interactive video and a full-color printed reference to teach the fundamentals of InDesign CS6. Experienced instructor Kelly McCathran presents 9 hours of high quality HD video, complete with lesson files, assessment quizzes and review materials. The video is wrapped in a unique interface that allows the viewer to jump to any topic and also bookmark individual sections for later review. The unique Watch-and-Work mode shrinks the video into a small window to allow the student to work alongside in InDesign. Project files used in the lessons are included on the disc so viewers can practice what they’ve learned, and interactive review questions help reinforce freshly gained knowledge. The DVD-ROM is bundled with a printed book that provides supplemental material to enhance the video training.
