After the networking social and our meal, STC NY Metro Chapter President Scott McCoy discusses digital media literacy. Digital literacy includes:
  • Inserting video into help systems
  • Aspects of social media that engage viewers and users
  • Gamification, with its simulated challenges to move participants though the content
Despite substantial writing about digital media literacy, today's technical communicators may be ingrained and limited by the technology available at their companies.

All is not lost!

You can use current authoring and e-learning technology to create interactive and engaging learning presentations and help components.
