Beyond Paper: Publishing enriched content to online formats via Adobe Tech Comm Suite 5

So, now you’re expected to publish to mobile devices, tablets and websites, as well as to PDF. Do you have to go to night school to pick up new skills as a videographer? Adobe Tech Comm Suite to the rescue! Discover how FrameMaker empowers you to maintain one set of source files (“traditional” or XML and DITA) and publish content with interactive 3D diagrams to “intelligent” PDF. Use a single click to publish ditamap or FrameMaker books to up to 5 online formats, simultaneously. (You can do this much without Tech Comm Suite.)

Need video? Quizzes? Interactive eLearning modules? Find out how you can master Adobe Captivate in just a few hours to create compelling video. Benefits summarized in this workshop include how to reduce some of your written content through brief, targeted videos. Hands on will be optional, and sample files used in the workshop will be available on USB sticks. Come join us and learn how quickly you can become a “video star.”
