Documentation Project Management: From Basic Research to Interviewing SMEs to Final Publication

Documentation comes in many shapes and sizes, as do the projects to create it. Are you building a one-of publication? A structured-content repository? A website? Regardless of what type of documentation you’re creating, you need a plan that helps you:

  1. Create a project planning space to make sure you meet your requirements and audience needs
  2. Discover what type of documentation you’re creating and who it’s audience is
  3. Develop a content model for your documentation that will allow you to build it correctly
  4. Implement your content model through a combination of tools, workflows, and publishing options
  5. Keep your documentation current through effective content governance

This webinar will introduce you to how to plan effectively for any documentation project, regardless of scope, timeline, or requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions

When do education events take place?

Webinars are held every Wednesday afternoon from 2-3 PM EDT/EST (GMT-4/5).

A majority of online courses are held Tuesdays-Thursdays between 10:00 AM-1:00 PM EDT/EST (GMT-4/5), as to not conflict with webinar times.

When will I receive the GoTo Webinar/GoTo Meeting instructions for an event?

Registered attendees will receive the GoTo Webinar instructions three (3) hours before the webinar begins.

Registered attendees will receive the GoTo Meeting instructions one (1) day before the online course begins.

To participate in a webinar and an online course, you must be able to access GoTo Webinar or GoTo Meeting, STC’s online meeting space. Check system requirements for GoTo Webinar and GoTo Meeting prior to joining. GoTo Webinar and GoTo Meeting are a standard web seminar tool (no separate download required) and all you need is a reliable Internet connection and phone line, or a computer with VoIP capabilities.

I registered for an online course, what are my next steps?

Once you register for an online course, you will receive a confirmation receipt that day. A majority of our online courses uses Moodle, STC’s course management site, which attendees will receive the login instructions two (2) days before the course begins.

If you cannot access Adobe Connect and/or Moodle (as needed), then you will not be able to successfully complete an online course.

I registered for a webinar, but will be unable to attend. Will a recording be available?

If a registered attendee is unable to attend a webinar that day, they will receive an email with a link to the recording, and an evaluation link along with the PDF of the presentation.

I registered for a webinar and/or an online course, but cannot attend at that time. Will I receive a refund?

If a registered attendee is unable to attend a webinar and/or an online course, the cost is transferable to a future event, but is not refundable. Online registration closes one-two business days before the education event begins.

I want to take a specific course that isn't listed online. Will it be offered in the future?

STC rotates its courses every year as we try to offer the most popular ones within the first half of the year. Online courses are subject to change or are offered more than once per quarter. If a course is not listed, STC will offer it again in the following year.
