Going Beyond Training: How KVH Industries Used Lectora to Develop a Product Configuration Wizard
After earning my Bachelor's degree (summa cum laude) in English/Writing from UMass Dartmouth, I joined KVH Industries as an associate technical writer in 2000. I have remained with the company ever since and am now the Product Documentation and Training Manager. On my own initiative, I migrated technical training from instructor-led PowerPoint presentations to e-learning courses with certification exams, choosing Lectora as my authoring tool. Since 2011, I have created and launched seven courses that have certified technicians from around the world. Two of these courses were entered in a local chapter-level STC competition and won awards.
