Today, we’ve released our latest training course – Writing skills for developers. The course teaches developers the key skills of technical writing for software user documentation.
Although it would be better for a professional technical communicator to write the end user documentation, for some organisations, this isn’t always possible.
It is for developers who:
Need a solid understanding of the fundamentals of technical writing
Want to communicate more clearly and effectively
What to know how little, or how much, they should write
Want people to answer their own Support questions
The course comprises 14 modules in total, which delegates can complete at your own pace. The course modules are delivered over the Web in small, manageable video presentations. The course handouts and exercises are downloadable as Word or PDF files.
We can also deliver this course as a classroom course for development teams.
We’re also continuing to add more courses to WriteLessons – our bundle of elearning courses for technical communicators looking to expand their core skills. We’ve added courses called “Writing and designing embedded Help” and “Markdown”.
WriteLessons is a subscription service – a bit like Netflix. You pay for it for as long as you need it. You can stop when you want, and the subscription will finish at the end of that month. You have access to all of the courses, which you can take at your own pace.
We’re currently working on a module on post-writing and verification, which focuses on editing and proof reading, which will be added to WriteLessons. You might also see a course on Cascading Style Sheets in the upcoming months.
WriteLessons, from Cherryleaf, provides you with access to a range of courses in technical communication. You have access to all of the courses contained within WriteLessons, which you can take at your own pace.
Currently in beta, we’ll be adding extra courses over time. At launch, it contains:
Single sourcing and content reuse training course
Introduction to content strategy
Documenting REST APIs
Managing technical documentation projects
You have access to all of the courses in the collection under a Netflix-style subscription plan.
