Auburn University, MadCap Software Collaborate to Enhance Education in Professional and Technical Writing

La Jolla, CA and Auburn, Alabama — September 1, 2017 — Students at Auburn University will be using MadCap Software to help them prepare for professional and public writing careers.

Through the MadCap Scholar Program, Auburn students will be able to experience two software programs as part of the course curriculum for the undergraduate English degree, professional and public writing track: MadCap Flare and MadCap Central. MadCap Flare is a solution for intelligent content authoring and publishing. MadCap Central is a cloud-based platform for publishing, content, and project management that is tightly integrated with MadCap Flare. As part of the track, students will be deeply immersed in a semester-long project focused on the basics of content management systems and structured writing.

“We are excited to help Auburn students gain the modern content development, delivery and management skills required in businesses today,” said MadCap founder and CEO Anthony Olivier. “Through our Scholar Program, we are extending our ongoing commitment to equip students with the technologies to grow their skills and better position themselves for careers in professional writing.”

Auburn University’s English Department plans to incorporate the software into graduate-level courses in the near future, further preparing students to create and publish state-of-the-art content in the professional world.

As more documentation continues to move to the web, content management and single-source publishing have become key skill areas for professional and technical writers across industries. The MadCap Scholar Program is a fantastic opportunity for our students to gain experience in these crucial technologies.
