Gatlin Learning offers a course called Technical Writing through a lot of colleges.This course is a JOKE!
It costs nearly $1600 to get information that you can easily get on the Internet, information that doesn't pertain to technical writing, and information that is downright WRONG! For example, a great deal of time is spent telling you how to write an email and use a search engine. Yet NO time is spent telling you how to write a technical manual! Also, you're promised that the instructor will help you develop a portfolio.
The instructor was very unresponsive and when I was able to talk with her, it was obvious she didn't know what she was talking about. Oh yes, and the course (and the instructor) says that MLA is the styleguide tech writers use. MLA is for academics.
Real-world tech writers use Chicago Manual of Style, APA.Don't waste your money and your time on this course!
