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.
I've always heard that the BU professional courses are excellent, but
most of the courses listed here are two-day intensive courses. When I
see the laundry list of concepts that are to be covered in two days, I
just don't believe that I can absorb that much information (even if it
is all presented brilliantly). The course that meets on 10 Saturdays (in
the flesh, I assume) is the only one I might consider.
I see a lot of businesses (as opposed to universities) offering courses
online, and I don't know what to make of them. I guess I'm old-fashioned
in assuming that courses linked to a university would likely be pretty
good -- while I have no idea how to evaluate online sites like
managementconcepts.com. They might be great, or they might not.
Any thoughts about how to pursue this interest? All suggestions
