I’ve used RoboHelp since 1996 (hard to believe that’s 21 years ago, isn’t it?) and I’ve also developed several online courses for Adobe’s online help creation software for previous versions. Now my new course for the latest version, RoboHelp 2017, is available on Udemy.
This course has 116 lectures and takes about 5 hours if you go through it from beginning to end. The course curriculum is broken into 13 “chapters” that include the following topics:
- How to navigate the RoboHelp window
- Creating a new help project
- Formatting your help project
- Designing your topics
- Adding links
- Building forms and tables
- Inserting graphics and multimedia into your topics
- Going further with variables, tags, and scripts
- Organizing your project using an index, glossary, search, and TOC
- Generating and reviewing online help projects
Because you have unlimited free access to the course after you purchase it, you can return to the course whenever you want to get a refresher about one or more topics.
The course retails for $140, but Udemy frequently offers promotional discounts for all its courses. The course has a 30-day money-back guarantee, too.
Go to the Udemy website to read all about the course, review the course outline, watch a brief intro video, check out current discounts, and purchase the course. I’ve also developed courses for two older versions, RoboHelp 2015 and RoboHelp 11, in case you’re still using those versions and need help using them.
RoboHelp is a great tool for technical writers and software developers to create and offer help on a variety of platforms, and you can learn more about it on Adobe’s website by clicking here. I also updated the Adobe RoboHelp Wikipedia page with a lot of new information about RoboHelp’s history and capabilities.
I had a productive weekend, and I hope you had a great weekend, too. Have a productive week and a prosperous rest of your May.
