RoboHelp 2015 Logo

This course will teach you the essential skills needed to create and deliver user assistance (Help systems, policies and procedures, and knowledgebases). You will learn to create RoboHelp projects from scratch, and how to add content via importing from Microsoft Word, Adobe FrameMaker, PDFs and HTML. You'll learn to enhance content with graphics, DHTML, and multimedia, and how to improve the navigation of your content by adding hyperlinks, indexes and glossaries. You'll improve your production efficiency by learning about cascading style sheets, variables, snippets and master pages, and learn how to control the look of the final output via Skins. The output files you learn to generate (Single Source Layouts) will deliver content to the iPad and other tablets, smartphones, and desktops using output formats such as Multiscreen HTML5, WebHelp, Microsoft HTML Help, Adobe AIR Help, PDF and eBooks.
