This past year we had outstanding luck with teaching some
undergraduate, basic writing courses online. We are now hoping to put
a graduate technical writing course or two online this next September. I
would be very interested in discussing a test project with anybody who
would be interested in taking a course in such an environment.
You can see our graduate course offerings at
I cannot promise that these classes will come to pass. We are only
now looking at testing the possiblilties. But chances are we will
do "Technology and the Writer" in a seminar format and "Help file
Development Theory" as a sort of extended workshop using RoboHELP.
I hope this is not seen as SPAM (TM); if it is, I apologize to those it
