Online Help Today and in the Future

Earle Browne Continuing Education Center, 1890 Buford Ave. St. Paul, Minnesota, Rm 135AC.

Directions to Earle Brown:


The growth of the Internet and intranets has expanded the scope of on-line Help development. With the emerging new platforms, a range of alternatives to Microsoft's Help standards is now available. At the same time, Microsoft has solidified and expanded its dominance in the software world and continues to be the pacesetter.

Joe Welinske will provide an overview of the impact that current trends in the software industry will have on the online community. This will include some of the latest design models being used in Microsoft's product line.

Joe Welinske is President of WinWriters, a Seattle company specializing in training and publications for the Help community. WinWriters sponsors the annual WinWriters Online Help Conference in Seattle as well as conferences in Boston, Europe, and Australia. Joe has been involved with software documentation for over 15 years. He has a BS in computer engineering (U.
Illinois) and a MS in instructional design (Loyola University.) He is a faculty member at the U. Washington in the Dept. of Technical Communication where he currently teaches a course in online Help. Joe co-authored Developing Online Help for Windows 95 and publishes the Online Help Journal.
