Product Usability For Documentation Professionals

How can you document a product before it is finished? This challenge
is especially frustrating when the documentation professional isn't
involved until late in the development process. As a documentation
professional, you need techniques that will empower you to play a proactive
role in the development of the entire product, not just the documentation.

This two-day course is a mixture of lectures and exercises. While the
major focus is on prototyping and usability testing of software products
and documentation, we also discuss other useful techniques such as
contextual inquiry and user myths. Based on our recent research projects,
you will get the latest information on how to develop usable wizards, cue
cards and on-line help. You will work with other participants to practice
the techniques taught in the class.

Who Should Attend:

This course is for documentation professionals and managers who develop
documentation (printed or on-line), help, tutorials or other product learning
aids. An understanding of usability concepts is helpful, but not required.

Course Topics:

Basics of Usability Testing
Choosing the Right Technique
Designing a Usability Test
Prototyping Techniques
Techniques For Documentation
Learning From Usability Tests
Working on the Team

Each participant will receive Penny Bauersfeld's Software
By Design: Creating People Friendly Software.

The standard price for the course is $620 (US).
