January: Key Trends in Software UA

  • Jan 24, 12:00pm – 1:00 pm SOLD OUT
  • Jan 24, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm Spots available

Join us on January 24 to hear Joe Welinske talk about key trends in software UA.

User assistance is much more than “Help.” It encompasses a wide range of skills and technologies that are combined to improve the software user’s experience. We contribute through wizards, tutorials, and web-based training. We develop and populate knowledge bases and content management systems. Printed manuals and their PDF equivalents are still an important element of our documentation sets. Many of us are now embedding helpful content directly into the user interface. We are involved with usability testing, localization, testing, quality assurance, and branding. This presentation provides a cutting-edge overview of the latest trends in software user assistance, defines the key terminology, highlights the most important technologies, and offers predictions on future directions of our field.

This session will only be available as a live streaming event through GotoMeeting. It will not be recorded.


After you register, you’ll receive a confirmation email with the webinar login information.
