Next Month:

We've got a fantastic lineup of online courses coming your way in July.

Starting next week on 5 July, learn the invaluable skill of technological adaptability to confront ever-changing software and technologies in Technological Adaptability: Developing Basic Technical Skills with Melonie McMichael. This course is self-paced (asynchronous).

Beginning on 10 July, Guiseppe Getto returns with a brand new course on a crucial topic for technical communicators: usability. If you've ever struggled to create usable websites, documentation, or applications, or you're getting a lot of customer complaints about your products or services, Usability 101: What Every Organization Needs to Know is for you! This course will take place on Tuesdays from 2:00-3:00 PM EDT.

Closing out the month, we have a returning favorite: Technical Editing Foundations with Li-At Rathbun! This course will teach new technical editors everything they need to get started, and will also serve as a great refresher to veteran technical communicators without formal training in this area. The course begins 18 July and runs through 14 August on Tuesdays from 10:00-11:00 AM EDT.
