TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
The company I am on contract to uses WebEx (www.webex.com); another
I've seen advertised is Astound (www.astound.com). The 'students' can
view the 'trainers' screen (even if they don't have the application).
Only week point seems to be the lack of real feedback unless the
instructor either has the students work along at a second workstation
(beside the one they are viewing the training on), or 'passes'
control of the session to the student's in turn (time consuming).
We are wrestling with whether we want to continue training this way.
I don't now what the cost is.
