About the webinar

If you’re writing training material in a quick-revision environment, like product development, or juggling multiple audiences or product versions, the traditional approach might not get it done. Topic-based authoring tools allow authors to create and draw from a library of complete topics, select which topics are appropriate for each document and audience, and reuse identical topics across multiple documents. Content can be easily shared between related training documents, and also between other training materials and user documents. Topic-based authoring tools also offer advanced functionality that allow authors to create learning tools that are part of any training material: an answer key from course activities and quizzes, instructor notes, and activity callouts in the margins. This presentation demonstrates these techniques with MadCap Flare, but these techniques can also be applied to other authoring tools, including FrameMaker.

Intended Audience

The content will be introductory (e.g., > “101 level”) and will also be valuable to practitioner level attendees.
