Instructional designers and technical writers both exist to explain how things work. Traditionally, instructional designers were focused on creating content experiences that educate, while technical writers were more concerned about crafting clear, concise instructions for using a product or service. Both disciplines strive to do the best job possible using the skills and tools at their disposal. And, increasingly, they’re being charged to do create the same types of deliverables.
Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and my special guests, eLearning specialist Margaret Collins, and Senior Software Engineering Manager, Kristine Murphy, both of adaptive experience platform, Progress. We’ll be joined by Lawrence Orin and Joe Gelb from Zoomin Software to discuss how the Progress team applies a learning and instructional design mindset that allows them to focus on user types and creating role-based, personalized content experiences.
David Pitta, CMO at BrightTALK, Val-Pierre Genton, VP of Product Marketing at BrightTALKRecorded: May 29 201964 mins
Today, B2B marketers have access to data that their left brain would only have dreamed of a generation ago. The age of “I know 50% of my marketing spend is wasted, I just don’t know which 50%” is behind us. If anything, marketers are drowning in too much data, courtesy of ~7,000 martech vendors.
Powered by technology, automation is allowing marketing teams to simplify and scale like never before. That said, we’re in danger of over-automating and losing the human touch. Let us remember that purchasing decisions are made by engaging the mind (left brain - IQ) as much as emotions (right brain - EQ).
So which data matters when you’re crafting inspiring stories, trying to reach new audiences and getting pressure to acquire more customers? How is it even possible to make authentic connections while you’re automating for scale?
Join David Pitta (CMO) and Val-Pierre Genton (VP Product Marketing) as they share proven strategies so you can do the same for your business. Their insights draw on viewer data across millions of professionals engaging with webinars and videos on BrightTALK.

Andreas Blumauer & Bruno WildhaberAug 28 20193:00 pmUTC60 mins
Data growth and chaotic data management is causing ever-increasing costs and user discontent. More and more “digital landfills” are created — completely obsolete data that continues to be stored and managed unnecessarily. International studies show that around 70-80% of all stored data is of no use to the organization, increasing the overall cost for managing data.
How can the valuable data be separated from the Redundant, Outdated, Trivial (ROT) data which is duplicated, obsolete, or has no meaning for the organization?
The traditional approach is to manually identify and clean files, folders, data structures and the like. But this manual approach is limited, merely because of the amounts of data stored in an average organization. Consequently, an automated solution is required. An important starting point is the automatic classification of all data in order to be able to eliminate ROT data objects continuously.
Join Paul Perrotta, the Technical Communication Wrangler with his special guests, Andreas Blumauer, CEO and founder of Semantic Web Company and Bruno Wildhaber, Managing Partner at Swiss Information Governance Competence Centre. Andreas and Bruno will look into success criteria of data cleanup but also discuss the governance model.
Topics to be covered include:
• How is the cleanup process set up?
• What is the role of semantic technologies and how can they support the cleanup process?
• How to identify “valuable” vs. ROT-data? What is “valuable” data? Which quality criteria must valuable data meet and who defines them?
• How can complex rules for automatic cleanup not only be implemented but also made maintainable?

Developers are moving their API content out of traditional help tools to create a better user experience. However, this means users now need to find the content they need in two separate places, creating a disruptive, inconsistent user experience that puts your hard work to waste.
With the growth of Software as a Service (SaaS), writing API documentation is fast becoming a major part of the success of technical content managers, ensuring that your users find, and are able to use, content in the way they need it, at the time they need it, on the device they need it, and in the language of their choosing.
Great companies make sure their overall content strategy is holistic, and that all this content, including APIs, is united under one roof.
Join Paul Perrotta, the Technical Communication Wrangler, and his special guest, Joe Gelb, President and Head of Business Development at Zoomin Software for this free, one-hour webinar. Joe will guide you through case studies of companies that successfully unified their technical and API documentation publishing, so you can do it too.
• Understand how API docs will impact on your success
• Come to grips with commonly-used API doc formats
• Learn how others successfully streamlined tech docs and API docs with amazing results

Tina Kister, Information DeveloperSep 17 20195:00 pmUTC60 mins
When it comes to content, design is inevitable. The question is whether it works. Design is at least 15 times more important than content when it comes to user trust and engagement. In as few as 15 milliseconds, users form first impressions that have measurable consequences for credibility, usability, and engagement.
We tend to think of design as either “good” or “bad,” and as a mysterious and magical thing with a life of its own inspired by an elusive muse and completely subjective in nature. However, design is fundamentally neutral in nature, with no inherent positive or negative qualities. The way we respond to design is based on a complex, yet predictable, interaction between sensory stimuli and human anatomy, neurobiology, and cognition.
The term “design” refers either to the arrangement of things or to the act of arranging things. “Intentional design” refers to the act of deliberately arranging elements to solve a specific problem – that is, to elicit a desired response.
When it comes to content, design is critical. Whether you use intentional design or not, content and design are inseparable; users inevitably perceive and respond to design, and it always makes an impression. So, the key to creating compelling content is learning to use intentional design, rather than incidental design.
Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his guest, Tina Kister, for this one-hour webinar. Kister will explore the correlations between the science of perception and the discipline of design, and how both are integral to creating effective content. Tina will also distill the basics of design into a few simple concepts, and provide a few basic rules you can use to ensure that every design choice is intentional and effective.
