Stop me if you've heard this one before, but there is disagreement between ISD and Technical Documentation in our group. As a result, there is a lot of duplicate effort when creating lessons and online technical documentation.
I'm searching for ideas on how I might be able to leverage what TD has created (which is HTML text and images), and import into my Captivate lessons. I also want to publish a dictionary or glossary of terms, so we all call a GUI element by the same name consistently.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
First question, with what product does the TD group use?
For example, I'm pretty sure InDesign can create some pretty nice, and even somewhat interactive, HTML output.
If that's what the team is using, you could possibly load that output into your CP shell, then create more complex interactivities around it, then publish as a full lesson.
Or just do a lot of copy/paste but that's a maintenance nightmare.
Creating a standardization document is not only a great idea but a critical one! Good call.
Thanks Eric. I will reach out the TD group and find out what they use.
