Whether you’re creating content for the web, an ebook, an email campaign, or an app, HTML is the technology you need to be using. What’s that you say? You don’t know HTML? You only know InDesign? Well, guess what? Your favorite page layout program can help you create HTML for all those uses. And in his course Creating HTML Layouts With InDesign, Justin Putney walks you through the process.

Here’s the course description:

Not only is HTML the language of the web, but it can also be used to create ebooks, mobile apps, and rich emails, and it can be embedded in other formats like DPS. This course will walk you through each of those options, help you decide which are right for your project, and show you best practices for successfully exporting your content and layouts to HTML so you can share it with the world.
