Use some of the most common software application features to prepare your written work. First, learn how to get organized using tools including OneNote and Evernote, then look at presenting your written work in applications such as MS Word, PowerPoint, FrameMaker or InDesign. You will practise adding more visual detail to your documents using Visio and converting documents to Adobe Acrobat's .pdf format for review and publishing. Finally, understand the meaning of file extensions (tiff, .jpg, gif, .eps, .wmf) and image resolution so you can communicate more confidently in your work. Learn through study, practice, peer and instructor feedback, and assignments. No software other than the MS Office suite is required. Free trial versions of other software may be required and will be advised by the instructor.
