Quick Guide to Apple Pages 

Here you will find some basic guidance and links to resources on how to use Apple Pages for teaching, training, learning and development.

Many individuals make use of Apple Pages as a writing tool for personal and professional purposes, for drafting blog posts as well as for thesis writing.

In educationit is a very popular tool for creating lesson plans, student guides, worksheets and handouts. In the workplace it is a useful tool to short job aids (checklists, quick reference guides, etc), simple training materials (like worksheets or workbooks) as well as more complex (multi-page) instruction manuals.

Here’s a video that shows you how to create a worksheet or workbook.

A checklist that consists of a list of items that can be checked off as an individual works through a task might be created using a table, or through the use of checkboxes – see How to create a check box or tick box in Pages

Basic quick reference guides (QRGs) don’t require a lot of word processing expertise, but more complex QRGs make use of images, screen grabs and annotations like arrows, circles and text books.

Training manuals (or user manuals) are more complex multi-page documents than can benefit from Word’s more sophisticated features – here’s an introduction to creating a book in Pages
