Collin Offers Tools For Developers


February 16, 2005 - This spring, Collin County Community College District ("Collin") is offering a new computer application class at its Courtyard Center for Professional and Economic Development (CYC), 4800 Preston Park Boulevard in Plano. The new class, RoboHelp Office X5 for Microsoft Word , begins March 1. Check out the continuing education schedule online at for more information.

Every application being developed requires a substantial amount of built-in or online help for the end user. This class trains software developers, help desk personnel and administrators how to take their application support skills to a whole new level. Macromedia's suite of RoboHelp products allows for the creation of a variety of Help file formats that can be incorporated into Microsoft Word documents. Anything that needs to be explained to an end-user--from how to fill out an employment form, to H.R. paperwork, to science lab procedures--can be addressed with this software. RoboHelp offers the tools necessary to easily create supporting documentation.

Other Java courses are listed in the continuing education schedule or on the website at For more information, call continuing education at 972.985.3750.
