Event Details

In recognition of the National Day on Writing, NEO STC will host the Writing Canvas Workshop at John Carroll University! Join us for this all-day professional development opportunity that includes a morning workshop, afternoon presentations, networking, and food! This event is open to the public, and pre-registration is required.


Do you want to learn how to create a simple but functional app with no coding? Then join us for the morning workshop! In the morning session, you'll:

• create an app using an app development tool called ViziApps Studio.
• leave with an overview of app design principles and an actual app with data you can modify without being a programmer.
• have a good sense of what you can create and the initial knowledge needed to research other tools.
• work hands-on, alternating between viewing explanatory slides and actually creating the app.

Neil Perlin, an internationally known consultant, strategist, trainer, and developer for online content in all forms ranging from traditional online help to mobile, will be teaching our morning workshop and also presenting during the afternoon sessions. He brings 33 years of experience in technical communication, with 27 years focused on online development using formats and tools from the past, present, and future.

In the afternoon, we'll have breakout presentation sessions where you can learn from other area experts, including Lynn Nickels from Rockwell Automation, Denise Kadilak from Blackbaud, Inc, and Carrie Buchanan from John Carroll University.

The following sessions will be showcased:

Morning Workshop:
"Creating Mobile Apps without Coding" - Neil Perlin

Afternoon Breakout Presentation Sessions:
"Take Your HAT Mobile" - Neil Perlin
"Writing Across Genres" - Lynn Nickels
