Developing Modern Technical Documentation

Gateway Technical College is dedicated to providing its Professional Communications students with leading-edge tools that contribute to a superior learning experience, enriching their skills and positioning them for successful careers. As part of this commitment, the school is updating its “Online Help” course and using MadCap Flare to familiarize students with approaches for designing and developing modern online technical documentation.

Gateway plans to leverage MadCap Flare’s features for topic-based authoring, single-source content development, and multi-channel publishing to advance its students’ technical communication best practices. Additionally, the college plans to incorporate Flare into future course structures, including its “Writing Software Documentation” and “Information Design” courses, to help students streamline project planning and management, create different types of communication products, and publish products in print and electronic channels.
