Desktop publishing is the use of the computer and software to create visual displays of ideas and information.

The VCE VET Desktop Publishing and Printing program aims to provide students with the knowledge and skills that will enhance their employment prospects in the Printing and Graphic Arts industries.

Hopefully that answered your question.

It's actually an industry term, I've learnt about it in IT and Multimedia... so I don't think that'll be happening, even if it is a bit ambiguous. :P

It's the younger, uglier brother of VET Multimedia :P
