Wright State University Chooses MadCap Software to Best Prepare Students for Careers in Technical Writing and Provide them with a Competitive Advantage in the Workforce

La Jolla, CA and Dayton, Ohio — November 6, 2013 — Wright State University is joining forces with MadCap Software to ensure that students pursuing its Documentation and Usability course have competitive advantage and clear understanding of technical communication best practices when entering the workforce. The university is using MadCap Flare, the industry-leading authoring and multi-channel publishing product—supporting print, Web, desktop and mobile—to provide students with the most advanced authoring and publishing solution available today. By using MadCap Flare, students are gaining both the expertise and understanding of the modern techniques of technical writing and single-sourcing. Furthermore, access to the leading software program used by thousands of companies worldwide will provide students with a competitive advantage when entering the workforce.

Numerous sources now cite Flare as the most popular Technical Writing software, and so being able to help my students learn to use it will be a great benefit to their careers. Single-sourcing is a necessary skill for Technical Writers to have, and giving students experience with a topflight program that automates single-sourcing as Flare does will be a great introduction to the practice
