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.
Just discovered that SmartPlanet.com is Ziff-Davis's current online
education service aimed at individuals (ElementK seems to be more
employer-focused). Pricing for SmartPlanet courses is more like the old
ZDU's (some free courses, $15.95/month for access to most others).
Continuing Education Units are available. I'll check this one out, too -
thanks again, Donn.

Donn Le Vie gave his endorsement of ZDU's inexpensive online courses, and
mentioned that ZDU is now ElementK.
Donn, thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, ElementK's prices are significantly
higher than ZDU's were (annual subscriptions to specific tracks start at
$179), making the classes less practical for the individual learner. Makes
me wish I'd known I'd want to learn this stuff while ZDU was still around!
