Mastering multimodal text with a range of Adobe solutions

Presenter : Dr Tim Kitchen

The concept of multimodal text dominates the English learning area in the Australian Curriculum. Multimodal text is defined in the Australian Curriculum as a combination of two or more communication modes (for example, print, image and spoken text, as in film or computer presentations).
