About this talk

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.
