It's been a while, but as I recall, Doxygen is very easy to set up and use.
If instructing the devs on the commenting syntax that's the problem, it'll
be very easy to create a 2-hour presentation and a 1-page cheat sheet from
the Doxygen docs. While there are a number of commenting styles available,
you need merely choose one and say, "do it this way." And depending on the
language they're commenting, you'll need to be specific about
language-specific constructions as well. But the Doxygen docs are excellent.

If you need more help than you get here, you might try the nettechwriters
list on Yahoo. It's a list dedicated to API documentation.
