Authoring DITA Content in FrameMaker
Learn to create and edit DITA content using Structured FrameMaker
Jan 6, 2022
COURSE IN DEVELOPMENT
I am currently recording the lessons for this course, and the course will be fully completed by the end of February 2022, and very likely sooner than that.
This has been my #1 most requested course for years, and I'm happy to finally have the bandwidth to build it up from scratch, using the concepts covered in my Authoring Structured FrameMaker Content course.
In addition to the two online deep dives at the end of the course, participants in the BETA will have the opportunity to participate in numerous live online sessions, where we will discuss the material, and refine what will (and will not) be included in the final course.
This is an excellent opportunity to see how FrameMaker and DITA work together, as well as understanding how online courseware is developed and delivered.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE COURSEWARE
While in beta, topic titles that start with [DITA] have been either developed for this course or are existing structured Fm topics that are appropriate for this course.
Topics will be developed and released in the proper order of completion. The base course contains approximately 40 topics, meaning (on average) you can expect about 5 topics per week to be released in order to meet the projected end-of-Feb completion date.
This course does not yet include a DITA-specific workbook, but will have lessons laid out in the topics themselves. Participants will receive a printed workbook if and when published, but no publish date or timeframe is currently set.
I hope you can join us for the beta...I'm quite excited to get this project completed!
This course teaches you how to create and edit content using the DITA structured content model in FrameMaker.
Two of the topics are available as a free preview. The first is some basic info related to selecting text, and the other is further down in the course (expand the course syllabus to see the full list of topics) and shows you how to manage your electronic cross-references.
These two topics give you a sense of the detail and quality of the course material.
