Adobe Acrobat DC Course Outline

Overview
Communicating ideas and information is the cornerstone of organizational operations. And, electronic forms of communication have made the transfer of knowledge quick, easy, and inexpensive. The ability to harness the potential of electronic forms of communication is critical in nearly every type of organization. But, in many, if not most, organizations, people work with a wide variety of devices running on a wide variety of platforms. And sometimes, what works well or looks good on one device, won't work at all on another device. Or, your carefully designed and formatted document may end up looking like a jumbled mess on someone else's computer. So, how do you balance the need to communicate ideas to large groups of people with the enormous diversity found in today's electronic devices? The answer: you don't have to because Adobe created the Portable Document Format (PDF) as a solution to incompatible document formats.

Adobe® Acrobat® Pro DC puts the power of the Portable Document Format, literally, at your fingertips. By taking advantage of the functionality and features available in Acrobat, you will ensure the integrity of your electronic documents regardless of who views them, on what devices, or with what operating systems. And that will give you the confidence and peace of mind that comes with knowing that what you meant to communicate is what your document recipients will see.

Version Note
This course is taught using Acrobat Pro DC. Older versions of Acrobat do not have the same GUI interface. If you are using an older version of Acrobat and take this class, note that the interface has changed. Also, Acrobat DC has several new features that will not be available in older versions. Users of prior Acrobat versions can take this class, but it is recommended that you consider upgrading to Acrobat DC because of its many enhanced capabilities.

Target Student
This course is for individuals who are new to Adobe Acrobat Pro, but need to create and share PDF files and PDF portfolios. Students should have some experience using office productivity applications, such as a word processor, a multimedia presentation application, or a spreadsheet application.
