Quark announced today the QuarkXPress® 9 Teacher-Try-It Program, an exclusive chance for teachers in North America to receive a complimentary copy of the newest version of QuarkXPress. The program, which is running from May 1, 2011 to November 1, 2011, aims to help teachers in K-12 and higher education institutions gain experience with QuarkXPress 9 in order to prepare students for the emerging need for skills in cross-media design and publishing.
With many free tutorial options available, QuarkXPress 9 is easy to learn and perfect for teachers and students creating newsletters, books, magazines, newspapers, posters, presentations, and much more. The most recent version of QuarkXPress to be released, QuarkXPress 9 also allows users to create content that can be published to digital devices — e-readers, smartphones, and tablets — with one tool, and without coding.
The Teacher-Try-It program is open to K-12 and higher education educators at accredited institutions in the United States and Canada who teach classes in graphic design, digital media, print media, journalism, imaging arts, interactive media, interactive arts and development, new media, as well as other study areas that can be submitted to Quark for consideration.
