Learn to create HTML-based articles to create dynamic and interactive digital magazines, e-catalogs, and interactive elearning experiences with Adobe Digital Publishing Solution (Adobe DPS 2015 / Adobe DPS 2016) and how to use a content management system (CMS) like WordPress to push HTML-based articles directly or indirectly into DPS for a streamlined or even completely automated publishing system.

Adobe DPS 2015 / Adobe DPS 2016 publications are increasingly HTML-based. With the near limitless interactivity potential within modern HTML–HTML5–it’s no wonder. InDesign isn’t being phased out of the Adobe Digital Publishing Solution workflow, but even content already living within InDesign can be converted to HTML.

For content that doesn’t begin in InDesign, content that starts or lives within a content management system,
Adobe DPS 2015 / Adobe DPS 2016 offers special integrations to go directly from certain CMS into DPS.

In this course we’ll explore both the subject of creating digital publication content in HTML as well as within the WordPress online content management system to create dynamic and interactive digital magazines, auto-fed or semi-auto-fed e-catalogs and ecommerce apps, and interactive elearning experiences.
