In this podcast, Gretyl Kinsey and Simon Bate discuss the DITA Learning and Training specialization. How does this specialization work? What are some ways an organization might benefit from using Learning and Training to structure its educational content? What should you consider before implementing a DITA authoring environment with Learning and Training?
We often talk about building content strategies from the ground up: first, coming up with a strategy to address your content problems, and then implementing a solution. But not all implementations happen that way. If you’ve already started implementing a new system, it’s not too late to think about content strategy—in fact, it’s crucial to make sure your new processes will be sustainable.
Highly designed content uses presentation to call its audience’s attention to the most important information. This kind of content requires more attention to detail and exceptions to the standard layout than content with a purely functional design. In this podcast, we discuss strategies for producing highly designed content and solutions for exerting more control over your design in a publishing environment with automated formatting.
In this podcast, Gretyl Kinsey and Alan Pringle discuss Scriptorium’s DITA training resource, LearningDITA.com. What is the business case for providing a free e-learning resource, and what does it take to get it started? What are the challenges of growing and managing an open-source, community-based project?
We are excited to announce our newest LearningDITA course: Publishing output from DITA sources. Our other courses show you how to create and reuse DITA content; this one shows you how to publish it to PDF and HTML.
This post is a follow-up to the Content interoperability case study by Scriptorium and easyDITA. To learn more about the project from the perspective of the AJCC, easyDITA interviewed Laura Meyer, the AJCC 8th Edition Project Manager and Managing Editor, AJCC Cancer Staging Manual. Scriptorium is re-publishing this interview with permission from easyDITA and Laura Meyer.
What if DITA could lead to better care for people with cancer? This case study shows how Scriptorium and easyDITA worked with the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) to help give doctors faster, more targeted access to cancer staging information. This week, Scriptorium and easyDITA are joining the AJCC at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual healthcare IT conference as guest exhibitors.
