Course Outline
RoboHelp is the industry standard for Help authoring. It's the preferred program if you are a Help author, technical writer, or programmer tasked with creating Help systems for desktop or Web-based applications.

RoboHelp 8 HTML has the letters HTML in its name; therefore, many people think that RoboHelp is a Web Page development tool (much like Adobe Dreamweaver)—it is not. Although you could create terrific Web sites using RoboHelp, its primary mission is to let you quickly, and easily, create Help systems.

By the time you have completed this action-packed book (many people can finish in two or three days), you will have mastered the essentials skills that will allow you to create a RoboHelp Help system in several output (including WebHelp, FlashHelp, HTML Help and Adobe Air). You will learn how to create master pages, cascading styles sheets, dynamic HTML effects, forms, frames and more.

Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
I liked the pace and the "teach then try" style that was used. It was engaging, we weren't listening to long sets of info then trying to remember it and it made the day fly by. I also retained more as I was instantly engaged with trying the skills myself.

Todd McCall is a passionate, well-informed and thoughtful instructor. His course exceeded my training needs and his commitment to experiential learning is superb! I will definitely take another class if he is the instructor.

This was a good course to learn the essentials of Captivate as a software program.

The instructor was great and followed the curriculum as per Adobe's book but Dreamweaver is a beast of a software with a high learning curve. I found that this course just scratched the surface and taught me the basics and that I would need more practice and learning to create a simple website with ease. This is not a criticism of the course really but I felt I would personally benefit from a slightly slower pace and an extra day. I didn't know that at the time as I seemed to follow the instructor's instructions well and it seemed to make sense in the classroom but once I got home I felt a little stuck!
