Course Workings

  1. Once we receive your payment for this course, we send you a link in which you select a start date. Your schedule is then set up for you with due dates starting 3 days from receipt of your payment.
  2. For each unit:
    1. you do some reading, watch some videos to learn concepts and procedures for that unit. (You can skip units for whatever reason, but if you need a recommendation, your instructor will mention the units you actually completed.)
    2. you then practice the concepts and procedures of that unit. The videos show you step by step how to do the practice work for that unit.
    3. you send the FrameMaker practice work to your instructor, who reviews and comments, and if necessary, explains revisions needed. You repeat the revision–review cycle until your instructor signs off. (You can choose not to revise; no problem.)
  3. Toward the end of the course, you build a complete, standard book in FrameMaker and revise as necessary.
  4. Optionally, you can create your own book project in FrameMaker and revise as necessary.

If you use the Adobe FrameMaker 30-day trial, you can work ahead to complete the course within the 30 days. Let your instructor know.
