Information Processing and Publishing develops graphic design skills to create and produce paper-based documents such as DVD covers, magazines, business documents, newsletters or web page design for electronic documents. Students learn from two focus areas: Desktop Publishing and Business Documents. Students incorporate various design skills to produce quality documents that can be used for future portfolios.
Students consider the social, ethical and/or legal issues associated within a focus area. They develop the knowledge and understanding of current computing hardware and software for publishing documents (whether it be for electronic or paper-based documents), based on the key focus area.
