TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
About a year ago, I posted asking for information on computer-based training
development tools, i.e., software that you would use to assemble your
company's computer-based training. I'm asking here again because I'm
particularly looking for a tool that is extremely user-friendly and easy to
use, and I'm interested in the viewpoints of experienced users.
Our training department is saying, "Oh, we'll develop HTML-based CBT for our
programs with this freelancer we've used before." Something about this sets
off my publication-management intuition as not being the most efficient or
easily managed course of action. It seems to me that it would be better in
the long run to invest in a tool and create the CBT deliverables in-house,
as far as keeping the knowledge in the company goes. I'd love to know other
people's opinions on this.
