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.
This is the best system I've seen. I've been in classes where two class periods were used as an introduction to FrameMaker and then we were left on our own to continue or not.
As an undergrad at another school, I only encountered one professor who ever mentioned Frame or RoboHelp. Now that she has left, they are probably turning out graduates who have never even heard of those applications.

Subject: Re: Tech Writing Curriculum
So, I say remove ALL tool-related classes from tech writing programs. Or
at a minimum, reduce it down to a small, small fraction of the courses.
