Cyn Gar completed this course, spending 10 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
This is a good introduction to typography in the digital age, teaching terminology and basic design considerations. You work on a project that builds on itself over three weeks as you are introduced to those considerations.
Note: you don't need expensive (InDesign) or complicated (Scribbus) software for your project, I did everything in OpenOffice Draw (free office suite software available for Windows, Mac, and Linux). Also, I probably got far more into the project than was actually required.
