I´m a PhD student at the Istanbul 29 Mayis University and will summarize an activity that can be used as a training tool for younger students in particular dealing with technical writing.

I´m a PhD student at the Istanbul 29 Mayis University and gives us insights into his research titled “Factoring in Culture in Technical Communication”. Güneş gives the guidelines of an exercise he prepared for a 3-hour coursework for undergraduate students.
If the official documentation is an intimidating (dare I say boring) wall of text, they are likely to dismiss it and look elsewhere. While videos have become a bigger piece of the content pie for many technical communication teams, the added complexity of audio production and streaming video hosting can be a limiting factor in their use.
One lightweight option worth adding to your multimedia toolbox is a technology that dates back to the dawn of the Digital Age – the animated GIF.
A lot of the industry has already adopted VR as a design platform for their projects. The purpose often remains the same: to review a project before committing resources to it. Let´s take a look on these 3 clips with Awane Jones:

We can say that Information 4.0 or smart content is the new era of information. But what does it mean in practice? Why make use of it? What is its value? These questions will be answered in our practice example.
If you had a better understanding of each individual reader of your content, could you create better User Assistance? Could you personalize it for each user? Let´s take a closer look on these questions…
Not long ago, all technical documents were designed in black and white. Color printing was simply too expensive. Until today, color has been seen more as an image issue than a truly necessary tool. However, colors are important in pointing out differences and supporting the identification of components…
