I just learned that the University of Waterloo has an on-line Technical
Writing course and I was wondering if anybody out there has taken on-line
courses before. Specifically, this course offers a package to configure
your computer, on-line assignments such as manuals and documentation and
chat groups to help with problems and group projects. I am currently
enrolled in a certificate program in Technical Communication and I'm
wondering whether this would help as far as additional skills and
experience goes. Any thoughts, comments etc. would be greatly
