Free DITA 1.2 Learning and Training Specialization Webinar from Comtech

Hot on the heels of their recent announcement of a trio of free webinars on DITA 1.2, the folks at Comtech are also giving a free webinar presentation on January 26 called: “Implementing a Publishing Solution for the DITA 1.2 Learning and Training Specialization”. While this one is tied more strongly to a vendor (in this case, Vasont) than the other ones, it’s good to see a freely-available webinar that tackles the DITA 1.2 Learning and Training specialization from what seems to be a practical angle.

Here are the details:

Implementing a publishing solution for the DITA 1.2 Learning and Training Specialization
Presenters: Hal Trent, Bill Gamboa, Dawn Stevens
Date: Thursday, January 26, 2012 at 11:00pm EDT(GMT -4:00)

In this webinar, Senior Consultant Hal Trent of Comtech Services, Applications Engineer Bill Gamboa of Vasont Systems and Senior Consultant Dawn Stevens of Comtech Services discuss how to publish DITA 1.2 Learning and Training content to a Learning Management System.

Hal, Bill and Dawn explain how the DITA 1.2 learning and training specialization content are mapped to SCORM-compliant output and how an organization can leverage their current learning and training content with DITA-created learning and training content published using the DITA-OT and then integrated into a SCORM-compliant LMS (Moodle will be used for demonstration purposes) shared between the technical documentation and learning and training departments to maximize content reuse demonstrated using sample medical device content.
