We had a discussion last week about a potential partnership that involves Cherryleaf’s courseware (and our trainers). It prompted us to take stock of the all courseware we can offer today. Below are some of the items on the list:
Just to let you know our next Trends in Technical Communication Course – Advanced Technical Writing Techniques course will be held on Wednesday 29th April 2015, near The Science Museum in central London.
There’s not much more to say, apart from “book now to avoid disappointment”: Trends in Technical Communication Course – Advanced Technical Writing Techniques.
Cherryleaf’s Trends in Technical Communication Course – Advanced Technical Writing Techniques will be held on 27th February 2015.
If you want to discover new approaches to technical writing, this one-day, hands-on advanced workshop is right for you.
You’ll find out how Technical Authors in leading companies are now applying techniques from other disciplines (such as psychology, copywriting, usability and elearning) into the information they create.
The course has been designed to be independent of any particular authoring tool, and to work in both a structured and unstructured authoring environment.
Yesterday we released our latest elearning training course – single sourcing and content reuse.
This online training course teaches the basic skills in single sourcing and writing content for reuse. The ten learning modules in this course contain videos of the trainer with supporting slides and images. The course includes exercises for the delegates to complete and review.
The #VATMoss and #VATMess hashtags have been trending on Twitter for most of December. The hashtags relate to changes to VAT that are coming into effect on 1st January 2015. These changes may affect the online products Cherryleaf sells.
We’re looking for someone to take our Technical Author induction online training course, free of charge, in exchange for doing something that will help us develop future versions of the course.
This course was one of the first we developed, and, at that time, we didn’t use formal scripts in the creation process. In the next 18 months, we’re planning to re-record the course videos and revise some (approximately 5-10%) of the content. Having a script for the course will help.
So, in exchange for taking the course for free, we’d like that person to write a transcription for us of what the presenter is saying (which you’ll send to us). The document can be in .txt or Word format. You’ll benefit from having taken this couse, and having taken great notes for yourself as well!
Contact us if you’re interested in doing this.
UPDATE: We’ve found someone. Thanks to everyone who replied.
I will be talking at the Technical Communications UK 2014 conference (TCUK14) next month about creating videos for technical communication and elearning videos.
It covers how to embed video in a course. The delegates see, in each recorded module, a video of the trainer on the right of the screen, with the slides, application walkthroughs or images on the left of the screen.
This format is more engaging for delegates than a disembodied voice talking over a slide or image.
