This course is an extension of the Technical Writing Master Course I (TWMC1). We will be teaching students about document management/control on how to manage different types of documentation in a multitude of different corporate and non-corporate environments. We will also be teaching advanced technical writing techniques on how to integrate and develop new graphic designs using a wide range of templates to achieve the creation of beautiful and presentable documentation.
We are digging deep into the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC), Document Development Life Cycle (DDLC), Language Translation Tools and Annual Reviews (and why they are important pieces to managing documentation). In this course, you will learn about more strategic and modern ways to apply existing technical writing skills with a focus on document management/control, to be used in careers pertaining to government, IT, medical, HR, service, security, application development, software engineering and more.
