Creating Manuals


I am just starting to design the training manuals for our new IT courses and am unsure how to present them, either in hard bound copies or in a folder where the users can add their own notes and I can send out updates ? What ways have you found works best ?

  1. useful manuals
    I find that a lever arch folder is ideal. It gives plenty of room for notes received, and allows the freedom for student entries.
    The presentation being in step by step format plus research and reflection processes ensures adequate involvement at various levels. Online communication through emails and chat sessions are logged in a separate section, and time online researching and reading the course information/directions is added as well to give the student a sense of visible progress.

  2. Creating manuals
    I would agree with Beverly on this issue in that ring binders are ideal for any type of manual, simply because inpromptu notes pages can be inserted at any point.
    However the budget of the said courses will always have an impact on just what can be used for presentation. Due to having a limited budget I would always write a manual with plenty of active white space around key topics so that delegates can write their own notes as a when required. Also, some deliberately blank notes pages at the end of the manual alwaws comes in handy.
