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 recently attended a one-day workshop on multimedia, sponsored by STC
(Society for Technical Communication). The instructor, John Hall, included a
list of recommended reading in his hand-outs. Here are a few excerpts:
Clark, Ruth C. Developing Technical Training: A structured approach for the
development of classroom and computer-based instructional materials.
Gery, Gloria. Making CBT Happen: Prescriptions for successful implementation
of computer-based training in your organization. Gery Associates, 1987.
Hall, Brandon. Web-based Training Cookbook. John Wiley & Sons 1997
