Free webinars on current tech comm tools brought to you by STC Toronto

STC Toronto is putting on a series of DITA tools webinars over the next couple of months and is extending an invitation to members and colleagues of our chapter.
Here’s the description provided by Anna Parker-Richards, President, STC Toronto

“So far we’ve presented Quark and we have Adobe lined up for Tuesday next week, followed by XMetaL in March, and Oxygen in April.

Our webinar series is a bit of a twist on the typical DITA presentation in that we’re encouraging the vendors to show their wares rather than focus on the fundamentals of structured authoring and DITA elements. The agenda is simple: Bernard Aschwanden does a 20 minute DITA overview, the vendor demonstrates their product for 45 minutes, Q&A, and then I wrap up with a general reminder of upcoming events, and of course a reminder to renew STC memberships.

We have room for 100 participants and with our local distribution list, we really are only attracting 30 to 40 participants. We did the first session with Quark, are in the process of cleaning up the recording, and plan to post it in on YouTube to share with everyone. People who attended the first session were really pleased and several are asking me for the recording.”
