SLP Curriculum 2006-2007:

The SLP Curriculum, year 2006 - 2007, provides a Master Index to all PSPUG tutorials (over 380 tutorials). The Self Learning Programme is a Self Paced program this year to allow participants to choose not only which tutorials they wish to pursue but provides links to the various features, tools, and techniques that PSP users will find helpful as they develop their skills in using PSP.

The Index is organized by PSP features, tools and particular techniques. Thus, one may find specific tutorials to meet their interests and needs in learning PSP. The Master Index has links to the specific PSP features tutorials.

  • Version 10 users will be able to use tutorials written for versions 8 and 9.
  • Version 8 users will be able to use most of the version 9 tutorials except the Art Media Tools which are specific to Version 9 and 10.
  • Version 7 users will need to have a good working knowledge of their layout and tools in order to translate some instructions for use in Version 7. However, many of the instructions in other versions are able to be done in Version 7.
