Specific task instructions

Scenario

Red Opal Innovations (ROI_Scenario.pdf) wants to create user manuals to assist all employees in mastering the software it uses. The company knows that this will boost productivity as well as reduce the workload for the support department, as many employees will be able to solve their own problems.

They have formulated a list of topics for user documentation, as follows:

Topic list

  • Adding information in headers and footers in Microsoft Word, including page numbers and document information.
  • Adding images to your document in Microsoft Word, including different sources of images.
  • Formatting your document in Microsoft Word, for example text, styles, headings, colours.
  • Using features of an operating system, for example Microsoft Windows 10 Cortana, tiles.
  • Using macros and templates in Microsoft Word.
  • Using an item of IT equipment.

For this assessment event, you are required to determine the requirements for the documentation and plan your user documentation.

Later, for assessment event number 2, the plan that you develop will be used to create two different document templates (one for print and one for online use). The templates will need to follow the Red Opal Innovations style guide (ROI_Style_guide.pdf) to ensure that all the user manuals have the same formatting.

Finally, for assessment event number 3, once the templates are complete, you’ll use your templates to create and review a user manual.

Before creating your user documentation, you’ll need to consider the organisation’s requirements, what standards you’ll need to follow and the design of the templates and documentation.

Part 1: Determine documentation requirements

Your first step is to meet with your supervisor in a role play of 5-10 minutes to determine some information for the user documentation.

Prepare for your meeting by organising:

  • a person, such as another student, to act as your supervisor
  • your video recording device and set up.

You are encouraged to rehearse the meeting with your supervisor before completing the assessment.

During the meeting, make sure that you use:

  • effective listening and questioning techniques to elicit information
  • simple and relevant language to confirm your understanding of the requirements and identify the audience for the documentation.

Role play participants:

  • Supervisor – the other person acting as the Supervisor.
  • ROI employee –you.

Ensure that you include the following in your role play.

Determine/clarify the following:

  • The documentation requirements and organisational standards to be followed.
  • The audience for the documentation, including their diversity.
  • The system or application that will be documented.

Part 2: Plan user documentation

Use the User documentation plan template (ROI_User_doc_plan.docx) to create a plan for your user documentation and complete the following questions (300-500 words):

  1. Documentation requirements
  2. In your own words, give an overview of the type of templates and documentation you’re producing.

What is the purpose of your user documentation?

Who is the intended audience for your user documentation?

How will you cater for the diversity of the audience?

  1. Documentation standards
  2. What standards (both internal and external) might be applicable to user documentation? (List at least one of each).

Why would they apply to user documentation?

  1. Documentation design
  2. What are some functions and features of templates and style guides that would make them useful for creating user documentation? List at least two.

What content features should be considered that can affect the usability, clarity and readability of user documentation? List at least two.

What are some design considerations that specifically relate to online user documentation? List at least two.

Use this checklist to understand what skills and/or knowledge you need to demonstrate in your submission/presentation. All the criteria described in the Assessment Checklist must be met.
