New Case Study From MadCap Software Examines How a Top German University Eliminates the Redundancy and Complexity of Customizing Content With Flare’s Topic-Based Authoring and Single-Source Publishing

La Jolla, CA, USA – June 4, 2013 – MadCap Software, Inc., the leader in multi-channel content authoring and a showcase company for Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Visual Studio and Microsoft XPS, today announced that it has published a new case study on RWTH Aachen University. It explores how group exercise leaders in the university’s Institute for Mining and Metallurgy Machine (IMR) rely on MadCap Flare to develop class materials that are tailored for different students of its "Mechanics 2" course.

The full case study is available at: http://www.madcapsoftware.com/casestudy/rwthaachen.aspx.

One of Germany’s premier institutions of higher education, RWTH Aachen University is dedicated to the research of technology, serving several fields of engineering and science. Each department is comprised of different institute groups that focus on specific fields of research. The RWTH Aachen University Institute for Mining and Metallurgy Machine (IMR) studies the design of heavy machinery, and today MadCap Flare (http://www.madcapsoftware.com/products/flare/) is the publishing software of choice for delivering customized versions of the course exercise materials for student groups in its electrical engineering, mechanics and mining courses.

One of the courses making extensive use of Flare to develop exercises is “Mechanics 2,” which combines lectures with twelve exercise sessions per semester, each consisting of four tasks. Key benefits being realized by using Flare to support the Mechanics 2 course are:
• Flare’s topic-based authoring and single-source publishing have eliminated redundancies in developing and delivering customized exercise materials.
• Dual WYSIWYG and XML interfaces shorten the learning curve for the PhD students who serve as the exercise group leaders and are responsible for developing the materials.
• Conditional tags in Flare facilitate the ability to create customized versions of exercise materials.
• Integration of Flare with Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) provides source control to ensure that exercise group leaders are using the newest versions of content.
• A table of contents used to organize topics provides easy access to all content.

“Flare is an extremely intuitive product and has proven to be a valuable tool for creating exercises," said Domenic Boos, RWTH Aachen University PhD student and industrial engineer. "It has exceeded our expectations in optimizing our processes and providing a modern approach for developing and delivering exercise materials that support our students’ needs.“

“As one of the top schools in Europe for technology research, RWTH Aachen University has made a science out of helping students to learn by delivering course materials tailored for their level of proficiency,” said Anthony Olivier, MadCap founder and CEO. “We are excited by the university’s success in taking advantage of Flare’s intuitive, state-of-the-art approach to topic-based authoring, single-source publishing and TFS integration to streamline the delivery of customized class content based on the latest information.”
