Technical Writing Overview
Technical writing is a relatively new profession, but people have been writing technical documents for centuries. In our first lesson, you'll learn the fascinating history of technical writing, plus how the instructor (and many others) became technical writers and how technical writing employs both the logical and creative sides of your brain.

Preparing to Write
Technical writing requires preparation. In this lesson, you'll learn the basics of project management for your documentation project (including average amounts of time you should dedicate to different writing activities), key questions to help you analyze your reading audience, and how to organize the information you gather. 

Gathering Information
In today's lesson, you'll learn powerful communication skills that will help you get the information you need. You'll find out how to develop your listening skills and use body language that keeps you alert and encourages the people you're interviewing to talk with you. You'll also learn how to ask questions that help you get the answers you need more efficiently, and how to apply principles of adult learning when you're analyzing the information you've gathered.

Writing Skills
Do you ever get writer's block? Most writers do! Today you'll learn how to shut off your internal editor and give yourself permission to write your first draft more quickly and easily. You'll learn tips that will help you keep writing even when you realize you don't have all of the information you need, plus you'll have more confidence after you finish the grammar and punctuation review in this lesson, which includes tips about how to make your writing more interesting. 

Tech Writing Conventions
Every profession has rules and conventions that separate the novices from the pros. In this lesson, you'll learn all about time-honored technical writing conventions, such as using parallel structure, an inverted pyramid style of writing, effective headings, and lists.

Graphics
Should you save your graphics as bitmaps, gifs, or jpgs? In this lesson, we'll go over the difference between the most popular graphics file formats and guidelines for using each. You'll also learn about a new file format called PNG, and how to create screenshots on your PC, then manipulate your shots in Windows' Paint, saving you the expense of far more costly graphics programs. 

Document Formatting
Formatting your document can be critical to its success. In this lesson, you'll learn how to choose the typeface or typefaces you want to use and principles for using type effectively in your document. You'll learn about the things you need to keep in mind when laying out your pages. We'll take a look at some layouts that are commonly used in technical documents, then we'll discuss how to achieve those layouts using Microsoft Word.

Microsoft Word's Paragraph Styles
Microsoft Word has nearly a 93-percent market share for PC-based word processing—it's the de facto standard for most corporations and government agencies. So chances are high that you'll use it at some time in your technical writing career. In fact, most companies require that you be proficient with Word when considering you for technical writing positions. So in this lesson, you'll learn how Microsoft Word is different from other word-processing applications and how to use, modify, and create Word's paragraph styles. 

Document Templates
When companies use Microsoft Word for their documentation, they expect you to know how to use and create Word templates. In this lesson, you'll learn quick ways to build templates, plus you'll learn some Word skills that will help you dazzle potential employers, such as recording macros, customizing your toolbar, and using cross-references, AutoText, and captions.

Creating Indexes
Did you know that indexes are the most widely read section in any technical document? In today's lesson, we'll review indexing conventions, and I'll provide a few tips on building a great index for your document. You'll also learn how to use Microsoft Word to make indexing a bit easier. 

Editing and Proofreading
To polish your document and make it the best it can be, you need to proofread it and edit it. In today's lesson, you'll learn tips from professional proofreaders and editors, as well as ways you can use Microsoft Word to help you check your spelling and grammar.

Publishing Your Document
Publishing your document is an exciting time. All of your hard work is almost done—or is it? In our final lesson, you'll learn about different printing options and how to work with printers. You'll also learn about future trends in publishing and how your documents may be distributed in the future. Last, we'll talk about different ways you can use your technical writing skills in the job market, and a four-step plan for getting your first job, as well as some ideas about freelancing. Questions are always encouraged!

Customer Reviews


This class was wonderful. I could use the information and apply it to my work assignments at my job immediately. I look forward to taking more classes through this online program. The pace was just right for me. I hold a full time job at a busy courthouse, so I do not have too much time to spare

The course is designed very well to give the history, current information and the links to up-to-date knowledge. I liked the teaching style and methodology to use interactive lessons while reading, allowing useful ways to learn in all modalities. After this course, I am confident I will continue my learning and hope to continue learning through Janet. I also really liked her advice on how to get started, the market trends and usefulness of the course in a career!

The course instructor, Janet Underwood, was superb. She masterfully wrote on the subject of technical writing. Her expertise generated a winsome collage from the nuts and bolts of this technology. She, I believe, is the standard by which accolades in this field her given out. It’s been my pleasure to have known her through this very instructional and interactive course in technical writing.

Wow! This was really a great course. The material was well organized and very useful. Much supplemental material was provided as well. I learned an amazing amount of information, and also became informed about how much more there is to learn about this topic - a great balance for any instructor to achieve in a few short weeks. I can't imagine an instructor being more helpful or professional than Janet Underwood. Fantastic class!

I have taken many courses through my undergrad degree and two masters degrees and I can honestly say that this one ranks near the top in terms of rate of return on time and money investment. I felt like Janet was more than a teacher/facilitator of the course. She was really like a mentor. I look forward to taking other courses with her!

Janet Underwood is a great instructor, and it is extremely easy to read her lessons! She provides great insight about technical writing and what technical communicators need to be knowledgeable of. I learned so much from this class which I was able to instantaneously apply in my day-to-day tasks--including to always keep my readers' needs in mind.

I'm a tech writer (relatively new, just finished my first year), and this class was 100% directly applicable to what I do on a daily basis. A lot of the student introductions stated they were taking the class to see if tech writing might be of interest to them, so I'd be willing to bet that if they found the class interesting and engaging, and were successful throughout the lessons, they'd probably fare well in this arena. It's definitely a "real world" application of skills and I'm very glad I took the initiative to complete the course. I feel as if I have a secret arsenal of tools to help keep me organized if I'm at a loss or have a large project looming. My husband is pushing me to get some sort of degree in tech writing, and I told him I would, but only if Janet were teaching all the courses. Thanks, Janet!

I really liked the course. I rewrote some documentation during the course before sending it out and got an "Excellent" from my boss. I will keep referring to the lessons, and some of the highlights I intend to print out and keep handy. Looking forward to taking other courses.

This was an excellent course! I learned so much in a few short weeks that I feel would be very useful in jump starting a new career in technical writing. The instructor was very sweet and attentive, and answered everyone's questions in a timely manner. I was glad to see that the quizzes and assignments were not overwhelming, yet they helped me understand the discussion. This was the first online class that I took, and I'm so happy I did! I now feel more confident since I learned a new skill and plan on pursuing a career in technical writing. Definitely worth the money! Thanks Janet!

I am highly impressed by the material of course and the way it is taught .The step-by-step approach to teaching the whole concept of tech writing is just wonderful. I highly recommend this course to others who are interested in this field.
