Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of InDesign CC: Interactive Document Fundamentals (2014).
Since this is a fundamentals course, you don't need to know anything about InDesign's features for building interactivity before you start. However, you should have a basic familiarity with InDesign. You should know your way around the interface including the document window, the tool set and the panels. You should understand how to create and save documents, how to place photos in text and arrange them to compose a page layout. And you really should know how to format text with style. Basically, if you can layout a page with style and images and then print it, you're ready for this course.
If you need some more basic instruction on how to level on understanding.Check out David Blatner's InDesign Essential Training in the lynda.com library.
