Managing Templates for Maximum Content Efficiency

You did it! You used the quick wins from Matt’s first webinar in this series to gain some cred and to carve out the time and money needed to really get moving.

Then, you used the techniques Bernard showed you to straighten out your content and get it ready for a truly managed environment.

So now what?!

Join Matt Sullivan for the third webinar in this series, as he discusses template management for both structured and unstructured content.

Matt will show you how he developed the templates for his own FrameMaker reference books and workbooks. He’ll also show you how you can easily modify the templates for standard structure models like DITA.

You’ll learn:

  • What definitions can be managed with any FrameMaker template (and what cannot)
  • Where you can store additional parts of a template, or manage multiple versions of templates
  • How to modify DITA templates to improve branding and consistency with web and marketing standards.

All of this will put you in a great place for the fourth webinar in this series, presented by Adobe’s TCS evangelist, Stefan Gentz.

Frequently Asked Questions

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 Adobe Connect instructions for an event?

Registered attendees will receive the Adobe Connect instructions three (3) hours before the webinar begins, approximately at 11:00 AM EDT/EST.

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

To participate in a webinar and an online course, you must be able to access Adobe Connect, STC’s online meeting space. You can test your Adobe Connect connection here. Adobe Connect is 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.
