Course Description Overview

Course Specifications

Course Number:

092006

Course Length:

1 day

Course Description Overview:

“This courseware aligns with an earlier version of the Adobe Dreamweaver software.  Differences between this and the current software version should be minimal, and, with appropriate preparation, the courseware should be effective for instructional use.  No further maintenance releases of the courseware are planned.”


You are familiar with creating web pages and now you will use Adobe® Dreamweaver® CC (2017) to enhance web pages by adding advanced functions such as movement, media elements, forms, and links to social media. You will also create responsive pages to ensure that your websites are compatible with various modern display devices, such as tablets and smartphones. 


You will create HTML email for email marketing or email newsletters. Lastly, you will share files over a server to work in a collaborative manner. All this will ensure that you develop a website that retains user interest by providing an engaging user experience across multiple display devices.


This course is a great component of your preparation for the Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) Dreamweaver CC exam and the Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) Web Authoring Using Adobe Dreamweaver CC exam. See the files in the Exam Mapping for Dreamweaver CC folder in the course data files for information on how the exam topics are addressed in the material.

    Course Length:

    1 day

    Course Description Overview:

    To meet the demands of individuals and organizations for flexible, reusable, and easily modified visual content, Adobe Systems has created a cadre of applications that collectively provide a scalable, end-to-end solution for nearly every type of visual design project one can contemplate. Called Creative Suite 6 (CS6), the collection of applications perform specialized design tasks while interoperating among each other to deliver superlative content.


    This course focuses on Illustrator CS6, the component within CS6 used to create “drawn” graphics, while enabling its users to integrate content from other domains (such as photo-oriented graphics and animation, which belong to Photoshop® and Flash®). With Illustrator's many, easily used tools, you will discover that not only can you unlock the same creative impulses you've always had as you've picked up a pencil to sketch out an idea, but also capture those multiple ideas and “what ifs” during the creative process in ways that you never imagined. And for those of you who are just embarking on building your creative skills, you will be surprised at “how good” your work will appear even at the outset of your exploration of the world of graphic design.


    This course also is designed to cover the Illustrator CS6 Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) certification exam objectives.



    Course Objectives:

    Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to use Adobe Illustrator CS6 to create illustrations that include graphics and text.

    • Create custom paths.
    • Create graphics that contain custom text.
    • Customize objects.
    • Customize basic shapes.
    • Prepare documents for deployment.


    Target Student:

    This course is intended for designers, publishers, pre-press professionals, marketing communications professionals, or people switching to a design job or taking on design responsibilities and who need to use Illustrator to create illustrations, logos, advertisements, or other graphic documents.


    Prerequisites:

    To ensure your success in this course, you should be familiar with the basic functions of your computer’s operating system such as creating folders, launching programs, and working with windows. You should also have basic Windows application skills, such as copying and pasting objects, formatting text, saving files, and so on.


    Familiarity with basic design terminology, such as palettes, color modes, shapes, text, and paths is highly recommended.


    You can obtain this level of skills and knowledge by taking the South African Career Campus course Introduction to Personal Computers Using Windows® 7.

    Course Description Overview:

    To meet the demands of individuals and organizations for flexible, reusable, and easily modified visual content, Adobe Systems has created a cadre of applications that collectively provide a scalable, end-to-end solution for nearly every type of visual design project one can contemplate. Called Creative Cloud®, the collection of applications perform specialized design tasks while interoperating among each other to deliver content.


    This course focuses on Adobe® Illustrator® (2020), the component within Creative Cloud used to create "drawn" graphics, while enabling its users to integrate content from other domains (such as photo-oriented graphics and animation, which belong to Adobe® Photoshop® and other applications). With Illustrator's many easily used tools, you will discover that not only can you unlock the same creative impulses you've always had as you've picked up a pencil to sketch out an idea, but also capture those multiple ideas and "what ifs" during the creative process in ways that you never imagined. And for those of you who are just embarking on building your creative skills, you will be surprised at "how good" your work will appear, even at the outset of your exploration of the world of graphic design.


    This course is a great component of your preparation for the Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) Graphic Design & Illustration Using Adobe Illustrator exam.
