Last year, I took an online documentation course at George Brown
College here in Toronto. You may want to contact them about how the
course was designed and structured. Also, I contributed to the first
totally online course offered by the University of Waterloo (the
course was Technical Writing 210e). The course covered online help,
specifically SGML tagging and coding with conversion to HTML. It may
offer you some more ideas. If you are interested in web sites or
e-mail addresses, e-mail me and I can pass on some names and
addresses.
