Document Design

TCC 6495 2 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Graduate
Description Covers both the principles of document design and the practical skill of using Microsoft Word (Windows and Mac). Explores basic text and paragraph formatting as well as more advanced topics such as page layout, creating styles, using themes, and editing/inserting graphics. Class assignments apply the techniques studied to actual documents. Discussions are an integral part of the course that broaden the classroom experience with issues designed to expand technical communication knowledge. Offers students an opportunity to learn how to solve documentation challenges—creating documents, revising existing documents, or converting older versions to newer versions.
