In this episode of the Cherryleaf Podcast, we look at the equipment you can use for creating elearning content.
Subscribers to Cherryleaf’s online courses can now take them using their iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, plus the Teachable iOS app.
Here’s how you can download the iOS app:
- Visit the Apple App Store on your compatible IOS device (requires iOS 9.3 or later).
- In the App Store, search for, “Teachable Online Courses”.
- Click the cloud icon to download the app on your device.
- After downloading, open the app.
- On the login screen, enter the email address and password associated with the student account you’d like to access. This is the same email address and password you use to log into our courses through the web browser on your computer.
- When you log in, you’ll see all the Cherryleaf school you’re account is associated with, along with the specific courses you’re enrolled in.
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.
For more information, see: Writing skills for developers training course.
We’ve put together a short, 52 second, showreel-cum-promo video for WriteLessons, our collection of elearning courses in technical communication:

Just a quick update on some recent training-related news.
We’ve scheduled some new classroom courses:
- Cherryleaf’s policies and procedures writing course – 11th October
- Advanced technical writing & new trends in technical communication training – 20th October
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.
