Training has long since become more than just face-to-face instructions. Today, we can’t imagine living without online learning platforms, where learning is possible at any time, at your own pace and in an interactive environment.

Training has become an important area of work for technical writers. And a highly exciting one at that, one would say, because quite a lot has been happening in the fields of adult education and on-the-job training.
More duty than pleasure

The first impetus came at the technical level with the emergence of e-learning offerings and web-based trainings. A seminar can be planned and prepared in more detail here. With this type of training, it became all the more important to motivate a learner without direct personal interaction and keep him engaged.
