Welcome to my eDucation vlog! It's my passion to help small and medium sized businesses to create online content that is simple, easy to find, understand and use. When creating your online IT and business content, it really helps to use a simple, predictable, and easy to use structure, so you and your clients can find, understand and use your information easily. Do you sometimes look for information about how to do or understand something, but you have trouble searching though the virtual pile of unnecessary and distracting content? Like a table of contents or index in a hard cover book, Document Information Typing Architecture (DITA) gives us a clear and standardized way of organizing and labelling content. So that later, when we or our customers need to use the information again, it's easy to search, understand and use. The basic DITA framework gives us 3 basic "types" of information: Tasks, References and Concepts. Task topics give us a standard container and structure for writing step by step instructions to achieve a goal. Reference topics give us a standard container and structure for writing lists or tables with names, tools, components or anything in a numerical, alphabetical or chronological order. Concept topics give us a standard container and structure for writing descriptions of objects, ideas and concepts. Watch my eTutorial for more details about what these content modules are.
